Man I hope so! This will be my first year bow hunting. I was able to gain access to a small parcel of big woods here in relatively suburban town. As a ways to narrow it down a bit (there is deer sign EVERYWHERE), I limited myself to traveling the shallow creek that runs through the property. I found the two most used crossings and that is where I shall be putting my treestands this fall. I will be using the creek exclusively to get in and out of the area.
No, dependant upon the wind is the only reason I would make a change in how I approach my blind..... I've had deer walk completely down the same trail I took on my way in more than once, so the hype is slightly overrated

so occasionally that means walking to the same stand different ways....though usually wind changes means I hunt different stands....
I try to keep my walks in/out to a minimum, therefore if the wind changes 180, I would go from say a short walk, to a very long walk.....and walking through areas I do not want to disturb, thefore I just hunt other stands according to that particular wind....and try not to disturb too much area on my way in.
