How have deer reacted to seeing a blind put up that day ( if anyone has experienced that)?

It's been my experience that deer can't stand pop-up blinds! In fact, it has been nearly impossible to hide them from any mature deer. I've only had immature animals walk within striking distance and they seemed a bit nervous as they did. ANY black windows holes from shooting windows will send them running the instant they see them so makew sure to use shoot-thru netting. Good luck , you've certainly got your work cut out for ya.

Try to conceal it as best as you can. If it works out your make your shot while the deer is figuring you out. Too many thieves out there.

I never leave my double bull out. I pick a spot downwind of the trail and try to set it up so that there is some trees or brush behind it. If I have time I will brush it in a bit. Works great for me. I have literally had them within 3 ft. several times on a same day set.

I've used a blind the day after I've set it up and have had success. The biggest thing is to make sure you really break up the silohuette of the blind and to spray it down with some scent blocker.

How long do evergreens stay green if I cut some branches off and use them to blend my blind in?

Not very long but they will turn brown and last for quite a while. They don't actually need to stay green. If you use plenty of them no matter what color they turn they will still break up the outline of the blind
