Default Without a climber

Hey guys im hunting my friends property where I go to school and I usually always hunt from a stand, but this time I wont have one with me. Ive been scouting the area and found a few rubs and a scrape but im not sure where to set up where I wont be seen. Theres a little field but the problem is there is high grasses or plants on the edge and its very hard to see out of, and there is a hill in the middle so its impossible to see both sides of the field. Any advice would be appreciated.

Tough deal without a climer or loc-on and sticks. May have to try back from fields edge where the grass is not so tall and find a trail leading into or out of the field they are using and find a downed tree top or brush pile to hide up in.

Find some nice bush to hide it (after cutting some of the branches away inside), Or Gather Branches and tall grass, Build ur own wrap around blind. Then u can leave it there alway,s plus all the animals, not just the deer, will get use to it.

Problem with this is that they already know EVERY piece of grass in that field and its edges. If you were to go cutting away any areas to make a blind, they will know and avoid it. If you just look inside a tad from the edges, you will find what you are looking for and not have to make but a snip here and a snip there for just a stray twig or so. Nothing drastic, nothing new out of place.

When I first went to an area, I use ground blinds to check out whether it's worth a stand or not. Keep the camo ground blind material around, find 3 or 4 close trees, rap it around, pin it, a stool and your in business. No snipping or cutting of brush, and you can change from one side of the hill to the other fairly easy. When you decide which is your best option, then make some snips, firing lanes, setups, and go. Good Luck.

get a popup blind, stick it right on top of the hill, i have seen a guy do this with a blue tent, and was totally successful. the deer walked right by him. even though they got 1 already, another came by so his wife even got one.
