Default Hunting in Wind

Just looked at the forecast and they are calling for snow shower and 17-20mph winds for Monday. Do you change your set ups/tactics when hunting in windy conditions? Do you usually hunt lower down in bottoms and hollars out of the wind? I had planned to sit high Monday on a ridge where I know they tend to cross, but with the wind I am thinking about hunting lower down in a hollar or creek bottom. Thoughts?????????????? I will be hunting on my own property, approx 100 acres in SE Ohio. The property is mostly rolling with a couple spots that are steep. I have a nice thick creek bottom along with several hollars and ridges.

If the wind is blowing I have always found it better to get in the deep woods. The deer in my area don't move much once the wind hits about 8 mph. This tactic has worked well for me over the years.
