I take an old wind checker bottle I have had for years and refill it with corn starch. It works fine for me. I love the milk weed silk too. That stuff carries in the wind for many yards and off out of sight if it gets a little updraft to keep it going. :upthumb:

Here is my wind checker. To make it, I pull the foam insert out of the hood of my bow quiver and drill a small hole. Next I place a cotton ball up inside the hood under the hole and pull a small amount of cotton out. Then replace the foam and WA-LA that\'s all there is to it. Just pull out a small piece and let it float away on the wind currents.

I know my picture isn\'t the best in the world. But the small white dot in the center of the hood is where a piece of the cotton ball is sticking out.
If your eyelashes don't fall off just from looking at your broadheads, they ain't sharp enough!

I am a fan of the milk weed silk as well.  May have to try it in the bow quiver too.  Although I leave my quiver on my pack.

That\'s a great idea, Bill, but my quiver is usually on my back...
I usually just pluck a grey hair and tie it onto my bow riser. At first I thought it might be too heavy, so I tested it all day using a puffer, and it matched directions pretty well. But this only works if you have some long hair!

Is the quiver in a pack or on a back a common thing?
I always just hunt with mine on my bow, then when I get to a spot I wanna set up at, then I take it off.

I take mine off when I am in the tree stand hunting deer.

While elk hunting it is on my bow. I would hate to need an arrow in a hurry and have my quiver on my pack and out of reach.

Thermals is our blended scentless powder.

You can puff out the powder in big puffs and watch it ride the air on windier days or you can shake it sideways and slowly squeeze the bottle and get the vapors of the powder to show you the slightest thermals and currents.

These style wind checkers can be lifesavers when hunting. I use them like crazy constantly checking the wind and where we hunt the wind is always changing.

Mine rides sits on the right side of my pack.  I like that better then keeping it on the bow, but it also allows me the same ease to grab another arrow if in a hurry for a second shot. just my preference!
