Well the thing is, as you know, one never knows exactly what the wind is doing.
It is always a best estimation & then that is history as the situation has probably already passed.

But it is possible otherwise the shot would never convert to a scoring point.

Often I have changed my POA just before releasing the trigger as conditions have backed in that very moment.

It's a matter of having a open mind to what the wind is actually doing & changing ones strategy if needs be.

Reading the wind becomes a matter of intuition based on gained knowledge that is assimilated,
through extensive practice in many varied conditions.
There is nothing impossible to those who will try!
