Local knowledge can help at times but if the firing line is moved from the usual places this is negated.
I can vouch for this during the Winter League. On one lane I was sat there with smoke from a small bonfire blowing right to left over me (wasn't choking but not far off it hahaha) but the pellet went straight to the aim point - which was to give windage based on the previous target in a similar location which did take wind... Other times the wind was in my face and the smoke went to annoy someone else! Always the problem in the winter - hardly any leaves around to show these things so mightily impressed by the AAs who read these courses so well. Evil but fun :-)
