Thread: Don't bother to Stalk when the wind is from the East: Myth or true?

    Don't bother to Stalk when the wind is from the East: Myth or true?

    Is there any truth in the view that you can as well stay home if the wind is from the East?
    Having planned a Stalk for tomorrow morning -with the wind forecasted to be from the East for my area - should I stay in bed?
    What would be the rationale?

    If you can`t be bothered then stay in bed and i`ll come up.
    More chance of seeing them if you leave the house for a couple of hours.

    You'll shoot more in an East wind than you will from your sofa that's for sure.

    I dont subscribe to that. Except when there is a very hard frost down. East winds are the norm for a settled high pressure, anti-cyclone. Get out get into the areas the sun will heat up and enjoy your day.

    I agree with Wayne. I like to stalk in unusual winds as the deer won't be in their normal locations. Some bits of ground favour certain winds. Seek out the sheltered spots on your ground. Good luck. JCS

    Never heard this for stalking, but when sea fishing ,when the wind is in the east the fish bite the least, and it proved to be true
