I used to do it all the time. Finding dead falls or other natural cover and enhance them. Build natural blind and add fabric inside to make a complete block and just leave shooting openings. IMO hunting on the ground makes you a better hunter and it's more challenging. You just pay attention to the wind and have several blinds in one area to hunt the wind.
Make yourself scent invisible.
Deer will get used to anything. We would work around the farm on Saturday in the summer and I would get a sweaty. When finished I would take my shirt to my ground blind and hang it in the blind all week and pick it up next week when I replaced it with a new stinky shirt and throw the old one in the wash. After several weeks my sweat smell is normal for the deer and they totally ignore me.
Funnel the deer to you
We had old barbed wire fences on one section of the woods. partial section where broken. I left one section broken, maybe one strand on the bottom and took some wire and fixed all the other broken sections. The deer will cross right where the only broken section is.
On a live fence if you have if you have the electric fence the cattle and horses will stay away from it. Owner's permission here is very important, my uncle said it was ok, but I had to fix the stand on my dime after the season each year. On a 5 strand fence just cut the bottom strand in one spot. Horses and cattle stay away from the fence as it hurts and don't push on it. Deer will see the broken strand and crawl under it. If you cannot cut a strand use furing strips on every other post 1' higher than the post and run white string across like another strand and only leave a break where you want the deer to jump the fence.
Do you have Multiflora rose? it grows in huge patches in deforested woods out here. Take a machete and hack a trail through it in July/August and cut it to the ground and 3' wide. If it's thick in certain areas deer will use that trail like a highway and they like to browse on the new tender shoots growing up.
