Reading Air and Ground Currents

AIR CURRENTS
This is were I left off a while back and I had promised to talk about air currents for hunting predators.
Wile hunting it does not hurt to try and keep your body sent free. Your hunting partners will be glad you did. But to a coyote or fox it does not matter. They will smell you no matter how clean you are. Of course the less you stink can help you a little by giving you a few more seconds until they pick up your sent.
How to use air currents and wind is the best thing to help a hunter.
It is pretty simple to read the wind directions. Most of the time you can feel it if you pay attention. Or you could use the puff bottle wind detector like deer hunters use if you have problems. What ever way you chose this is important that you know the wind direction. The next thing is air currents also known as ground currents. Air currents run close to the ground day and night and in big temperature changes you can even feel the air currents run a different way then the wind is going Air currents have little to do with wind direction unless you have hi winds. When the winds get stronger it can start to affect air currents. If wind is strong enough it will push air currents the same direction as the wind.
But under most hunting conditions the wind is not strong enough. Unless you are hunting in over 20 mph winds. The best way to read air currents is to look at the ground shape. Ground currents flow like water does. If you look at how water on a mountain flows you would see the same path air currents will take. The reason being all air currents are always either warmer or cooler then the air temperature or ground temperature. Cool air flows down the hill just like water would. Warm air will flow up hill but will not take the exact same path as water does down hill but close enough that you can us it in you stand location. I know this may seam hard for some people to understand , but if you think how water would flow over the ground it gets simple.
Good luck hunting.

About Ernest G. Wilson

Hello, my name is Ernie Wilson and I would like to welcome you to my web-site. I feel very fortunate having enjoyed the outdoors and predator hunting all of my life. When I was a young boy, my uncle was a fur buyer. He was a good friend and kept me headed in the right direction with hunting, trapping, and many other outdoor activities. My good friends and family have always been hunters and still are today as I reach age 60. Over the years, I have enjoyed being a custom predator call maker and competing in professional calling contests. In 2011, I was the second place winner of the distress division in the World Predator Calling Championship in Perry, Georgia. http://www.grandviewoutdoors.com/predator-hunting/articlecontent/5/2011/2353/2011-world-predator-calling-championship I also competed in the World Predator Calling Championship in 2008 held in Overland Park, Kansas, and I placed in the top three at the contest. In 2008, I was the first place winner of the first ever Pennsylvania Predator Calling Competition. I have been actively involved in the Pennsylvania Predator Hunters Association having held many offices over the years including president. I have enjoyed organizing and running predator hunting contests. Also, I have enjoyed pursuing predators in many states including Texas, Kansas, Arizona, and my home state of Pennsylvania. One of my most proud accomplishments has been the development of the Tri-X Stand Rifle Rest Shooting System which you can find on this web-site. Recently, I have decided to offer predator hunting gear, in addition to, my custom calls and Tri-X Stand. I have enjoyed purchasing and using most predator hunting products on the market today. I have frequently felt some products had shortcomings while others, although very good, could be further improved. Today, my wife Marian and I make and sell products that I personally feel are the very best on the market. We also do our best to offer our products at a working man’s price. I am constantly seeking to develop new and better products for the predator hunter, so please check back on my web-site periodically. Predator hunting is my passion and I am not in the market to maximize my income by selling a high volume of products with a significant mark up in price. My philosophy is instead to sell the absolute very best products a predator hunter can use and to sell them for the best prices possible. Thank you for looking at my web-site and considering investing in the products I offer. Please feel free to contact Marian or myself with any questions, ideas, or feedback. Wishing you a very safe and successful predator hunting season in 2013/2014. ​​​​​​​​​Ernie Wilson ​​​​​​​​​July 4, 2013
