Wind based?

Unread postby isitseasonyet? » Sun Oct 04, 2020 2:55 am

How do you tell if a bed is wind based?

Or do you just assume that they only bed in that area when the wind is to their back?

It seems to me like bucks in the marshes like their areas for reasons more than just scent. As in it’s the sum of escape, and visibility, along with wind. And that they will sometimes bed with a less than ideal wind.

In hill country it seems to be that they rely a whole lot more on the wind and “bounce around” between more beds... Cover, and visibility are still big factors, but it seems with a poor wind they are rarely there...
