Wind Calls – Digital VS Analog

In Blog by Rich4 Comments

This week I want to show you guys two ways of coming up with your wind calls. One should work for everybody and is a more traditional way of coming up with a wind call. To do this I advocate the use of the 10mph Full Value wind baseline. You then modify the baseline to match the conditions you encounter while shooting. The second method will benefit the guys with an Applied Ballistics Kestrel. While we all should know how to do it the analog way, why not examine the digital alternative? We buy devices like the Kestrel to make tasks easier. So we’ll also examine the digital way of coming up with your wind call this week.

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. By getting a better understanding for how weather systems move you gain a better understanding for how wind speeds and directions can change. 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!

Welcome to the second segment of our How to Read the Wind – The Ultimate Guide series at AccuracyTech! In this installment we’re going to discuss angles. The wind is always changing and depending on your angle in relation to the target and the wind, the effects of the wind will change as well. You have to be able to assess the conditions and how they affect your adjustments quickly so that you can make the shot before conditions change. We’re going to give newer shooters the tools to do that by discussing the different components of a firing solution in detail. Today, let’s dive into angles!
