you are correct....this is the solution, just place your stand smack dab in the middle of the woods and hunt....3 out of the 4 directions are unaffected...LOL

Who told you that?You are telling me that all rivers except the Mississippi flows from south to the North? no sir, you are wrong... I believe the only river in the world that runs "backwards" is the Nile River in Africa....

Actually one of my favorite smallmouth bass fisheries runs south to north. It's the New River whose headsprings are in the Blue Ridge Mountains near Boone, North Carolina. It runs north through Virginia and then into West Virginia. It joins up with the Gauley River in WV to form the Kanawha River which runs right by my house and feeds into the Ohio River. Despite its name, there is nothing new about the New River. In fact, the river is the oldest in the United States and second-oldest in the world.

Ok......had to clear that up.... Like almost everyone says, wind in the face means you're looking up wind, every thing behind you is downwind.

Thats not right. Wind in your face then you are obviously looking UPwind. Think of it this way, if you are DOWNwind of an apple pie you would smell it because the wind would carry it right to you, but if you are upwind of it, you'd never knew it was there.

Shenandoah River in VA/WV...runs South to North as well. Maybe the south to north thing makes for good smallie fishin

My final say on the wind is this:

If the wind is hitting you in the back - you aren't screwed....just turn around!

Another thing to consider is Burdock will only grow to the west of a maple tree and always to the south of poplars.
