Re: Hey experts, Can we have a lesson on wind doping?
Another good read is "Dead on" There are some good tips on utilizing mirage and vegatation. In sheep country where I like to hunt often times one can use patches of fog as they frequently roll in and out of the mountains. They will clue a shooter in on direction and speed. Mirage is very usefull beacuse it is almost always present, esspecially in winter as heat (although very little heat) reflects off the snow. You can actually see the wind direction and to a point guage its speed. There are also a number of wind guages out there such as the Kestral and Brunton units.
Hope that will help you get started.
Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (how bad your last shot was, how big the group is going to be, what your buck will score, what your match score is, what place you are in...) then you loose the capacity to focus on the process.
