Default Wind drift ?

Tonight I was hunting and the wind picked up to 15-20 MPH with 30+ mph gusts
The tree was moving so much I got motion sick and had to come down to pitch my cookies

The only deer I saw were a pair of yearlings that went past my stand about 25 yds out
Almost perfictly cross wind to me

For grins I pulled up and tryed to figure out how far upwind I would have to aim

Is there a calulator out there to figure arrow wind drift ?
Can't remember exactly my arrow weight
But I use 55/70 lb Cabelas Carbon Hunter with 4" AAE Vanes cut to 29"
With a 100 gr Rage head
And I get 280 FPS

Any clue what the wind drift would have been for a 25 yd shot with 20 MPH crosswind ?
That is IF I would have even thought about trying it
