Re: Do you use a windmeter?

Yes, almost every shot beyond 500 yards. I use a Kestrel 2500 NV. Kinda wish I would have gotten a 3500 for humidity, but the humidity makes so little difference in the tradjectory it is not an issue.

Re: Do you use a windmeter?

You guys are way over gunned.....

I use a Cabelas Brunton $80 one.

Wind measurement calibrated against speedometers of all three of our vehicles. Spot on.

Elevation is all over the place but house is at 4535 thus easy to calibrate.

Baro after inital adjustment remains spot on. NOAA local weather station used for calibration. Link: http://www.noaa.inel.gov/windV/windV.asp

Use NWS for forecasting. Link:NWS radar image loop of Composite Reflectivity from Pocatello/Idaho Falls, ID
