Deer Hunting

Ground Blind set up

Uploaded on August 23, 2011

I am a new hunter and wanted to see if anyone could offer some advice on the best placement for a ground blind for hunting whitetail with a bow. Is it better to stay as covered as possible or is it ok to set up out in the open? Any advice, tips, comments welcome. Thanks ahead of time. Good luck to everyone this upcoming season.

I have always hunted from a tree stand and still do, but some setups call for a ground blind. I prefer to build the blind near cove or in a treeline. The perks of hunting on the ground are very good, especially if deer filter in from all points around you. you can make shooting lanes all over your blind, and still be in cover. I would say to build it near cover or in cover as it gets close to the season, but if you build it months before, you can put it in the open and let the deer adjust to it and you will be fine. Thank you, and good hunting.

I too would set up in cover. I like so set up on travel corridors along and staging areas, especially in heavily pressured areas where deer are likely to wait until dark to feed in the open.

I've had it work both ways, as long as you get it out early enough and give the deer a chance to get used to it, you'll be fine.
