**** you shifty wind

Nearly a perfect setup this afternoon. I heard the deer get up from the bed about 150 yards away at 650 and headed my way. Sitting on the best trail out of the swamp that the deer usually use. Head high palmettos 200 yards in both directions except where I am sitting. Safe N to NE to E wind.

A few minutes into the deer's walk to me, the wind shifts to due South for about 20 seconds. The deer stops does a big sniff that I can hear and stops. A minute later the deer moves again and takes the long way out of the swamp. Bye bye. I can control a lot of things, but you just can't control the wind.

I know a few of you can relate...:banghead
