I think you're misunderstanding what I'm saying. Yes, I'll look in advance myself to get a general idea. But, what I see on the TV or an internet app or on my front porch is not usually what I see when I get to where I'm hunting.

In flat country, the apps might work better. But when you factor in a maze of ridges, hollers, and creek bottoms, the wind behaves like it wants to. And it may be blowing a different way a hundred yards away. Not to mention thermals-most places I hunt, the wind will often change directions as soon as the sun comes up and the air starts warming. I still trust what I see myself over what Willard the weatherman sitting in a city fifty miles away; or Siri, the little electronic person who lives in my cellphone, tells me.
