i got a ground blind last year. havent shot anything out of it yet, but a ground blind is more of a challenge than the treestand. i have pretty good luck on seeing deer, its the killing part i have trouble with. i had a 10 pt. come within 15 yds last season and then spook. that would have been my biggest one yet! i cant wait for bow season here to start.
tips: stay with the feeding areas, thats where they are early season before the rut. use a lot of cover scent in the hotter part of the season (especially in that ground blind)
your last name wouldnt happen to be adams would it?
