Take more ammo because the shooting is usually some of the best you will get, at least that has been my experience. I don't do anything different with the setup. Probably call and flag less, as the birds seem to be on a string when the wind is howling.

Spent weeks hunting 60 MPH winds last year. Face your dekes into the wind. One right behind the other Run em long and narrow in a V.

Depends...if you found the field you are gona hunt and the wind was screaming ..then I would try and mimic the birds exactly as they were in that field at that time. If you found a feed and the wind was calmer, and the day you hunt its now screaming...well, we usualy trya nd find a mound or hill in that field where we can get on the leeward side and set teh decoys trailing down that side a ways and then losely into the wind. Put a few up close to the top of the mound, but pack them a bit tighter than usual as well witha very well defined landing area directly to the front of our blinds.
