You should buy a nice comfortable climbing stand to start.I use a Summit Viper and it works really good for me.

While I use both, and both have their place. I definitely prefer to hunt out of a Tree Stand.

I use both for certain situations. Mostly tree stands but when there is not a tree (or not a good tree) I use make shift blinds or an ameristep.

Get a good climber (I assume eastern whitetails since you're from MD).
Summit, API, or Lone Wolf depending on budget.
Don't go up without your safety harness.

Where you from in MD?

I use both, but I prefer making my own ground blind out of natural surroundings, has been working for me for over forty years.

anytime you can get up in a tree, youre gonna have an advantage over a ground blind.. but you cant always get in a tree so a good blind is also effective
