Default How do you set up in a crosswind?


Tonight we're hunting this open field. The wind is blowing 6 mph from the SW. We only have access to this from the south. There's alittle pond can I put the pond Infront of us will that help with the scent.

If you come in from the south east, just walk up along the edge (to the right of the first pond) and start calling from there. You are keeping the long pond in front and to the right of you.... Little pond is on the left. Start calling from there, you will have all the north and west scent free.....

Damn. I didn't see your post in time. I screwed up and went right of the little pond. Not even a howl back. I was using all vocals tonight too. I'm stumped. The weather was very misty sorta foggy at some point maybe that was part of it.

Think about it this way: you don't want your wind blowing into the area where you expect coyotes to be as you are walking in. Like Fratri said, if you stayed right, you would have the whole west/north that didn't get affected by your wind coming in. Now if you expected the coyotes to be to the northeast, I would say it is the wrong wind for that stand.

Wish I could help you, but all my hunting is done in daytime. Some of the things I do in setting up wouldn't work so well at night. Good luck to you.
