"Keep the wind in your face," as every hunter has heard, is a solid rule of thumb as long as you're facing the deer or where you expect them to appear. If you're standing still and they spot you, you're in trouble! The only time this might not be true is if you're using a blind or hiding in some kind of cover. Then you want the wind at your back so you can move if needed.
The main reason people say this is because the wind on your face helps push you forward when you're walking slowly through the woods or standing still. It gives you an extra boost if you need it. Of course, the wind behind you would do the same thing if you were riding in a boat or on a horse.
Again, assuming you are walking slowly through the field or standing still, having the wind in your face is helpful. But if you're racing down the road trying to catch a flock of birds, you want the wind at your back so you don't overshoot your mark.
This principle also applies to other forms of hunting, such as waterfowl or big game.
Because deer are so wary, adding wind chimes or even radio static might be enough to drive them away. Anything unusual will throw them off and make them too afraid to approach. The sound they make is similar to a bird's call, but more repetitive. It is believed that they use this method of communication with other members of the herd.
Deer have very good eyesight and hearing. They will avoid anything that resembles food because it could be a trap. Wind chimes and radios play sounds that seem harmless to us but that can scare off deer. Deer are sensitive to noise and will usually move away from things that make a loud clanging or ringing sound.
If you want your garden to be attractive to birds, try not to plant plants that are poisonous to them. Birds are very special because they allow us to see animals that others cannot, so protect them by not planting toxic plants.
If you're only going to hang deer for a day or two, it doesn't matter if you hide on or off. If you had to hang the deer outside, I would leave the hide on. It's not really that hard to take off.
The skin will keep bacteria away from the meat while it's hanging there. Also, people like to play games with their food. Hiding the meat inside the body keeps it safe from anyone who might want to eat it (or put it in their mouth without washing their hands first).
As for other things you can do with the deer: make sausage, jerky, hot dogs, etc. The list is endless!
Finally, if you wanted to use the antlers as decor, they would need to be removed from the skull. The skin around the base of the antler is very tough and would need to be cut away before you could mount it somewhere as decoration.
Wind reduces a deer's capacity to detect predators, yet fighting severe gusts increases the deer's stress and calorie production when feeding and moving. As a result, during periods of heavy wind, deer alter their travel pattern to reduce their exposure to the environment and predators. This altered behavior can have an impact on the success of your hunting trip.
If you plan to hunt during windy conditions, it is important to be aware of these changes in deer behavior. A deer will avoid dangerous situations such as falling trees or high-voltage power lines and may choose not to move out of the wind for fear of being blown over. Therefore, if you are planning on sitting still for hours at a time, make sure that you are protected from the weather. Dress in layers so that you can adjust yourself according to changing temperatures without having to stop what you're doing. Layers also help prevent you from getting cold while waiting for prey that might come by before sunrise or after sunset.
Wind also has an effect on sound perception. Deer use sound to locate food and danger. Loud noises such as gun shots or vehicle engines will scare off prey, while soft sounds such as those made by creatures they view as harmless will attract attention and maybe even cause them to follow the source of the noise. Because of this, it is recommended not to fire your weapon within 50 feet of any structure such as a house or shed because animals learn to associate these structures with danger.
