I sat on my bait last night after finding I got hit sometime between last monday night and saturday morning. The wifey and I stocked it up saturday. When I returned last night, no more hits. I hung out in the wind, smoke, hail and rain for a few hours until about 11. I decided to leave and after I got about a mile away from my stand the wind died down, the bugs came out, the smell of smoke went away and I could smell the country, you know, the fresh smell after a cool rain, perfect conditions I would think. I felt I should have still been on the stand but I had to work today and really didn't have time to go back. Here's my question. How much does this smoke and wind effect baiting? I would think it would really dissipate scent where as a nice calm cool night would be better. Also, between the time I got hit and last night the smoke and wind really rolled in. Is this smoke and wind effecting any of you guys that have been getting hit? Do bears not move much in the blustery weather like other game?
