Windicator Refill

1309 Views 6 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  GutPile
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?

Chalk-line chalk. You can get it in different colors if you want (red, blue etc)

Does it "poof" as well as the original stuff?
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.

All men were created with an integrated windicator. Most have yellow boots to prove that they have no idea how to use it.------SS
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.

That's the same stuff I use to refill, I like it a lot. Though you can find it cheaper on Amazon http://amzn.com/B016MKAKI8

I think it works better than the stuff that comes in the original bottles as well. Windicator bottles are not a necessity but they are definitely handy to have on hand.
