Anybody have any good ideas for checking the wind when hunting?

String, Cigarette, spray bottle?

I archery hunt almost year around and i tie a small bird feather to a piece of fishing line and glue it or tie to the end of my stabilizer. All i have to do then is look at the end of my stabilizer to check the wind. You can do the same thing to the end of your gun.
