Loc: West Tennessee
All of my stands are set up for southern winds (SW S SE) so when these cold fronts come in with north winds, I just hunt my stands as I normally would, only I keep my eyes peeled downwind to make sure I'm not being winded. If they wind you, not much you can do other than hope they make a circle around you and come in from the upwind side by accident. My 2 cents.

What Oct. lul? When did it start? Somebody must have forgotten to tell my deer.
I am definitely seeing a lull in older buck movement during daylight hours right now. Plenty of does and bucks 2 and under. As for hunting the wind, hunt the early wind and hope you don't have to worry about what happens after 9.
As many times as those idiots have been wrong this yr predicting weather I would setup for a SW stand. I'd like to give every meteorologist a good ole fashion southern arse whippin. Just hunt for whichever its blowing in the morning when u go in and dont expect on them being write. Im calling for a 20% chance of flurries and a 30% chance of tsunami's in the morning.
