Ok, so I'm part of a special handicapped hunt at a mining company, and I've spent the last two days sitting in my van in 85 degree weather, waiting for deer to come around. I took today off because there were supposed to be storms, and I didnt feel like sitting in my van again all day waiting to see 2 deer the whole day!!

Tomorrow is supposed to be alot cooler, with a high temp of about 62, and mostly sunny with just a slight chance of showers in the afternoon. But its supposed to be windy, west winds at 15-25 mph. Will that be to strong of a wind to sit in and hunt??

This is also in Wisconsin, and I'm hunting with a rifle. I have a Remington model 700 .270

I'll be parked where I can see down a lane that goes between woods to the north and a soybean field to the south, and I'll have the wind in my face the whole day.

I have four calls: "The Can", M.A.D. Buck Growl, adjustable deer call (fawn, doe, young buck and mature buck) and a rattle bag.

Any advice on how to get the deer moving?

And before anyone give me a hard time about sitting in my van, I am handicapped, and have the class A disabled hunter permit.

The weather change will get them moving more than any call ever will. As far as calling you could go ahead and try it guess but it's a little early for that yet. As far as the wind, I wouldn't worry to much about that just make sure you keep track of the direction especially because your in the van. Good luck! I'll be waiting for some pics!!

Why get rid of it? Should I go buy some of the fake horn things in the store?

hehe, maybe I just need to shoot a buck and use his horns next year

No, it's not that the bag is worse than horns. It's just too early to start rattling, give it a few weeks before you break them out.
