this is a topic right up there with what is the best gun/caliber.There are good arguments for both types of hunting.I've killed deer from the ground and from the tree.the whole your scent is up higher is BS if the wind changes.iv'e been in 25/30high stands when the wind changes your busted.The i can see more is true,so can the deer,they know to look up now.Like i said this debate will go forever long after were gone and the next generation is hunting deer.I'll leave all with this thought"did the american indiands use TMA approved treestands and expensive compound bows and scent loc suits?"They sure did kill a lot of deer though..................

Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky
