I use windicators all the time when wind direction is important. I usually use one of those little bottles up in a couple days, and over the years I've tried a variety of powders like corn startch as a refill but haven't found anything that works. I've used baby powder, but the unscented stuff is hard to find/expensive. What do you guys use?
For years while elk hunting I would light up a smoke to determine wind direction. One time I brought the rifle up to my cheek with a cigarette in my mouth and then got all anxious when the cigarette hit the stock and shot the bull in the hips....at about 55 yards.
I quit smoking soon after that. Smoking was bad for me and the elk.
Well, for those of us that wear yellow boots, I found a windicator refill on ebay, and it is great! I think this powder works better than the original stuff that came in the little squeeze bottles you buy at the store.
