Yea I also have 2 "natural" ground blinds that I have set up where there are no suitable trees available. I've also ordered one of the Primos Predator blinds to put up along a brushy field edge that offers no good stand sites.

One pretty well is all I use, my LW alpha. Goes in and out each setup. No worry of thievery, no squirrels chewing on anything, and the deer can't get onto me as I am always moving and hunting with the proper wind. Plus the extra physical activity of lugging a stand/sticks in each time and setting up/tearing down keeps me healthy and in top physical shape and is more fun than constantly going to the gym.
Just out of curiousity, wouldn't it be easier for you to use a climber instead of setting up sticks and what not every time or do your areas trees not allow for good climbing? Not criticizing just curious.
Gr8 question. I had a Summit Viper and sold it...in the midwest woods I hunt I found a climber too tree specific and I didn't get to hunt the trees I wanted to; I hunted the tree that the climber would work in. My LW hangon and sticks pretty well will work anywhere. Lots more choices; I hunt where I want to instead of where the climber allows me to. I do plan on getting a LW hand climber for next years MN hunt in the nasty, gnarley, steep mountains that SE MN offer, to keep weight down.

That I can understand, where I hunt is nearly all hardwoods, with tons of trees to climb in every set I hunt. And like I said there are maybe 2 sets I'd like to be able to hunt that I cannot hunt w/ my climber. I guess everyones woods are different.Good hunting.

at each area I hunt theres always:

1 - near scrapes
1- between food and beds
1- near the bedroom
...and at least one natural cover...blowdowns or high grass along fencelines....

Try this....sit on the downwind side of a rockwall near a trail in the mornings...it's kinda neat to have them walk right past you...lol.....Gihli suit for those days are a must....
