I pretty new to hunting and I think I understand hunting the wind. I've looked at several weather sights for in the morning and all say 0 mpr wind in the zip code i'm hunting from 6-11 am. Scoutlook does show a e-ne wind 0mpr. Their ScentCone shows my buddy's wind will blow into my stand. Should I choose another spot or hunt it since the wind will be 0mpr? we are set up only about 100 yards away from each other.

where are you hunting private or public. with a 0 mph wind there will be breeze from time to time, but it will mainly be calm so you should be ok. however if the wind picks up it start blowing yor scent around.

If you are hunting low pressure private land, you may be fine. If you are hunting high pressure public land ou may want to be careful and hunt another spot.
