Got any suggestions...?

yesterday I was sitting in my stand, looking at my Accuweather app on my phone and it was telling me that the wind was out of the SE.......however, according to my powder indicator and compass, the wind was out of the NW.....

I know that winds shift from time to time, but which one seems the most accurate to you? Does anyone know of one that actually changes when the wind shifts?

For example, yesterday afternoon, the wind went from S to E to NW all in a matter of three hours.....my Accuweather wind direction never changed.

thanks

Antler insanity . You can mark your Stand on an aerial map and view the wind direction at each of your stands before you leave the house . It had been pretty accurate for me this year !

I stick my finger in my mouth...take it out and hold it up. The side that gets cold is where the wind is coming from...Finger App

Some of the weather apps tell you which direction the wind is actually blowing instead of which direction the wind is out of. Make sure you know which kind of report you are getting.

Antler Insanity is a good one if you are into apps on a phone. I tend to prefer the bottle and baby powder as well. I don't have to worry if I have a cell signal with that one. \:\)
