    This is part of a series by Thomas Haugland. Reference to wind speed is shown as meters per second. Divide by 3 to get feet per second.

    Thomas from my "old country" is an amazingly knowledgeable and experienced hunter, despite his young age. I have yet to see any clearer and less "convoluted" instructional videos on LRH.
    My hat's off to Thomas!

    I think , maybe Im wrong, but you meant multiply by 3 to get feet per second. Or you can multiply the varible (meters per second) by 2.2369362920544 (or 2.237 for ease) to get Miles per Hour. I hope Im right

    Yes, if we speak of meters pr. sec and you want to convert it to feet pr. second, you may make a rough calculation by multiplying by 3. So 1 meter pr. sec = 3(+)feet pr. second.
