Default Blind ?

I have been bowhunting in 5 different places in the last week. I finally see some deer last night at a field edge but are out of bow range. Saw where there escape route was and have seen deer escape in same spot in the past. I was set up about 200 yards away from where I saw deer, in a natural blind with sign around me and paths coming from brush out to field up wind of me, with wind in my face and as scent free as I could be. Should I move to that escape route area or stay where I am? Any advice appreciated. Also what is the temperature range for good hunting? Temperatures and weather have been crazy up here this fall.

imagine walking into your livin room and there is a deer bedded down under a blanket on the floor, would ya notice? this is their house, prolly best thing would be to get a tractor and let the deer see ya moving brush and stuff over there <wink>(for your blind)..let it sit a week or so with no action from you....1st days they will check it out, after they sluff it off as a brush pile, they wont look twice at it after awhile...i would go ahead and put some kinda dummy or something that looks like you will look when you are in it..even a cardboard cut out or sumthin. gl with all that

I've had good success hunting out of a ground blind. One is a store bought one that I set up in areas where there is no tree for a climber. I also have several Blinds I've built around the property. Just cut brush. I've seen a lot of deer hunting this way and they are useful when a treestand isn't an option.

In your situation, I would say try it. If you are gonna build one, let it sit a few days before hunting out of it. If you carry a blind in be sure to make it look like the surroundings as best as you can.

What I would do if I were u after this year's deer season. I'd build a blind out of boards - make myself a nice one. like a small room. I'd make it in sections, first the walls and then a platform on stilts for the floor. then I'd make a roof. I'd take all the sections to the place where I want to leave the blind and put all of the sections together there. Please note this is permanent
