The biggest problems with high winds are severe wind chills and bullet wind drift. Depending what you are shooting, your range may be very limited due to the wind drift - especially if the winds are very gusty and not consistent.
The temperature was in the 30's and the wind chill was around 20. However I was comfortable in my shooting house. It blocked almost all of the wind and I have a padded seat with a padded back rest.

I am shooting a .30-06 with 150 grain Remington Core-lokt. The three deer I could have shot would have been at about 30, 50, and 100 yards. I think I could have compensated for the wind, at least for the first two. The 100 yard shot might have been a bit tricky.
