    I only hunt on the ground so my way of thinking always reflects that. Elevated is definitely a different story.

    Hmmm... I wonder if a smoke bomb might give a better perspective on the air current behavior at that height (or even ground level, for that matter).

    Just a thought. :drunk2:

    If I had any I would give it a try. Very interesting thought.

    Considering what I see deer reactions when down wind of my tower blind, it would be a waste of money.
    An interesting concept I saw awhile back, is that a person in a ground blind had piece of 4" PVC drain plastic that extended 10' or so above their ground blind to create a chimney effect that wicked his scent above the deer's level.
    Something to consider.

    That actually might work.

    I use to think that heat was required for the chimney effect until I put a flue in my shop for a wood (and eventually oil) burning stove. Looked down the flue while on the roof, and got my eyes full of dust and debris coming up.

    A literal "eye-opener" ... :D

    Watch the world and all its finery!! I live in the city and get all that other crap all the time!! I will check scores and such but them back to Mother nature, she is a wondrous beauty who is mostly hidden most of the year from view in OKC. Gotta soak up all I can in hunting season.

    Radio headphones. the same ones I use for lawn mowing. They offer some (22db) sound protection as well. since I shoot suppressed, they are great. I can't hear very well as it is, so I never hear deer walking in the leaves. I have to see movement, so these work great.
