Great pics!! Now how many times will you practice from that stand? Worried about spooking the deer at all?
Until I can group at 40yards, or end of August, which ever comes first. I hit a deer last year from a different location and searched for it for 2 days. I blame it on not practicing the hunting shot. grouping arrows from the ground at 60yards doesn't translate to shoting from a swaying tree, standing on a small platform with a tree trunk bumping your arm.
I'd rather spook them rather than not make a kill shot.

Can't judge your wife for not caring unless you post a picture of her!

So your just useing that stand to practice your shooting . But you said you don't care if you spook deer there just as long as you can make the shoot at 40 yards .Don't mean to sound rude but it seem to me your wasting a good spot to hunt.

I don’t think you are rude.
I’m hunting from that stand, and I’m practicing from that spot. I visit the area every other week to check my trail cams and check the property. I have to go to the property because it belongs to family that lives 1000 miles away, and I make sure there are no problems with the buildings.

As for spooking the deer; I don’t think I will have a measurable effect because active farms surround the property, and there is more consistent activity on the surrounding farms. Also I will stop practicing at the end of August (or sooner), as the Chestnuts, Acorns, and Apples begin to fall to the ground.
