Re: Anemometer (wind velocity guage)
I agree also. My first experience with wind change was my daughters first elk. At the time I was inexperienced (I probably still am) at reading wind all the way to the target. We made a great sneak on a herd of elk, a cow was at about 150 yards and my daughter was shooting a 308. Where we were the wind was left to right about 35mph. I told her aim at the liver/back of lungs to let the wind push the bullet home. First shot the elk was hit hard; second shot finished it. We stood up and took about 10 steps and the wind just died. For some reason where she shot from the wind was howling but not between us and the animals. On the second shot my daughter forgot to aim into the wind (good thing) and put the bullet right through the heart.
Sorry for taking over the thread; I guess what I am saying is there is no gizmo that replaces experience...but I still own lotsof them and I love every one!!!
