Default Wind is brutal

Sitting this morning & the wind is brutal. Sitting in a clump of yopons with the air rifle. The dang wind is like knife cutting through here. Had one he waded my way about 70yrds out then started blowing like crazy & took off. Then a dang hog runs right where it was. Couldnít get the binoís up to see horns or not. Hopefully didnít blow everything out. Itís still early.

It was so window yesterday morning in the panhandle we had to stake our A frame blind down with t-posts while crane hunting. They reported gusts up to 48mph in our area. It was insane.

About 30 minutes ago I hit the bleat can & grunt right behind. Waited about 20 minutes hitíem again. About 5 minutes ago this little 7 point comes running in. I wasnít real sure he was gonna stop, finally about 6yrds he stops looks around, noise on the ground & takes off again. Kinda cool to be eye level with him. Iím sitting in a chair amongst a clump of yopons.

Yesterday morning, the wind ripped a storm window off our cabin in Collingsworth County.
I thought the old roof was next.
It was insane!

The 7 point came back. He was behind me a little bit when I notice movement a little more to the right, directly behind me. No nice shooter 9 point. But I couldnít get turned around with the rifle. Holding out that heíll make his way around to the front of me.
