good call on the wind Mike Belt....didn't even think to check that. Yeah high wind gust on Monday probably from the front pushing through. But if he has a nice pine tree grove or something along that lines should that help break that wind up and might have a chance in there?

Now they're saying you'll have rain with those high winds for Monday. Tuesday's the day to go out of the two.

High winds and deer movement are an iffy situation. Typically high winds stymie deer movement but I've seen some gail force windy days where the deer were moving great. Usually they were moving fast. I suppose they were edgy because the wind impairs their hearing and ability to scent check. Pine thicket hunting would probably be at it's best on windy days because they serve as a wind break. It sounds strange but I've seen deer in the wide open out in large fields on windy days also. Again I'm surmizing this was because they felt safer in the wide open where they could use their eyesight to warn them of danger while their other 2 major sneses were impaired. Throw the rut into the mix and you never know. Still, out of the 2 days you mentioned I'd opt for Tuesday.

Crossbows should be for the handicap only!

Sure, the rut is a GREAT time to hunt if you don't know what you're doing!
