Quick Leeward Side Question

Unread postby Jdaukontas » Fri Nov 17, 2017 2:11 am

Does high speed wind cause more tunneling of wind or less? If I get up high, on really windy days, are my chances better for wind taking my scent over the wind tunnel?

Are tight valley's easier when wind speed is higher, or worse?

high wind speed will carry your scent out of there easier. less scent drop.

thermal tunnel sets up on slow or high wind speeds.

It depends on the terrain, aspect, sunny day or cloudy day, how consistent the wind is, and how gusty the wind is. But, in general, if you are up high in an unobstructed area, a strong wind will carry your scent farther away quicker with less drop to the ground. Just confirm with milkweed.
Some do. Some don't. I just might...
