Part 4 of our How to Read the Wind – The Ultimate Guide series is going to center on the right equipment to read and estimate the wind’s effects. We’re also going to touch on terrain effects and how weather moves in general across North America.

You also start to realize how maybe something you are seeing that you think is happening, really isn’t happening at all. Always be a student of observation and constantly calibrate your senses so that your guesses about the conditions match what’s really happening as closely as possible!

I’m finally getting around to this one, Wind Reading! I’m going to stress from the get go that this is merely one of several ways of going reading, or doping, the wind. The idea is to observe what is happening around you, come up with an idea of how that will affect your bullet’s path during flight, and apply a correction or hold in order to ensure a hit. How people go about this is subject to a lot of lore and superstition. If you have your own technique that works for you, that’s great! In fact, add it to the comments, the more information people have at their disposal, the better! This is just how I do it. It’s meant to give newer, or less experienced shooters, an idea and a way to get started.
