    How to use thermals to my advantage while hunting?

    I have been bowhunting for a little while and this will be my 4th year. I have no problem getting up and very close to game but I have been hearing about thermals on the hunting shows. First of all can I ask what they are and how can I use it to my advantage this year? Thanks and good luck to all this year!

    Ok dude. With all of your knowlage of bow hunting I'm very surprised you know know this!

    Alright here it goes! Everyone sit down before you read this and pay Attention!!!!

    Thermals are best used when it's cold outside! Use the Polar Weight when it's REAL cold and a light weight when not so much. Oh and you should get the RED ones with the flap on the butt so when you stick that monster buck at 80 yards you won't Shizz yourself!

    Hope this helps! :-)

    So easy I can't help it B-)

    Haha, at first I was like what the f? and then I got it? That's funny

    To the OP, I think nothing good can come from a thermal, when the wind swirls.....how would you be able to use that to your advantage?

    Well I hear all the big hunting guys like the eastmans say it so I thought I was missing something and thought it was a technique to better my odds.

    You need to take a weather class my friend. It is very informative in tons of ways...

    Ikic, that's some funny stuff right there.

    In "Elk Hunting the West" by Mike Eastman describes thermals. My understanding is that as the cold air meets with warm air creates the dreaded swirling wind. This happens mainly in the morning and afternoons. I have had my share of stalks busted by swirling wind. I have heard that swirling wind can work for your advantage by keeping the animal guessing where you real are but I have had only negative experiences with swirling wind.

    cold air sinks warm air rises. depending on terrain and a natural breeze it will b diff. calm wind there wont be much swirlling going on unless it goes from 35 to 60 digrees in a couple minutes, which doesnt happen. thermals happen every morning and night with the sun. in steep forested terrain ull actualy feel it. good luck man.
