The wind does not always stay the same, most of time it changes

Well not as much most folks, because the wind shifts so much, I have not been busted to my "knowledge" by scent in years and I hunt 60 days a year, but not say a buck scented and got the hell out of dodge quickly and quietly, but I do kill mature bucks every year, and i don't let wind determine my hunt. Unless I did not shower or have scent free clothes clean clothes before the hunt, or sweat a storm going to stand

And ive just got a couple spots picked out this year that are real real thick and i think real close to where bucky may be living so i dont want to take a chance of bumping him when im walking in.....

I here ya! I do the same in Illinois most of the time. During the rut those mid-west bucks would run over me to get to a doe. But in Ga I play the wind to the best of my ability. I have a couple of stands I may only get to hunt a couple times a year due to wind direction. But when I do get the right wind I usually kill one there

Depends on how early in the season. If its opening weekend, I'll shoot a good sized doe if she is alone and gives me a good shot. As October approaches the doe killing itch disappears.

pending the weather and time of day and circumstances.

if its a mature doe with babies that look like they will survive without momma and its not 200 degrees or right before dark then yeah.

if its a shooter buck then yeah.

mommas with itsy bitsy babies and baby bucks and mature mommas in very bad heat all get passes
