| | deer and chess
After all it is a game isn't it. high stakes maybe, but a game of instinct, technology, god given senses, tenacity, endurance, and stubbornness.
last season I attempted to hunt from a ground blind on short notice. That didn't work well for that hunt, but what it taught me my very well have significance in my further success this season. the deer were not fooled and tried to avoid the vicinity of the blind by giving it a wide birth. This season I noticed first earlier and confirmed later the deer have adopted some new trails and entry exit points of the woods. I cannot hunt a mutually favorable location to get a shot at each and as a matter of fact, I am pretty much stuck were I am. admittedly, stuck is a bad choice of words, I got a great location. there are 3 major entry/exit points used right now. My thought is to place one of those burlap camo blinds close to the area I want the deer to avoid and thereby forcing them to utilize the trail system I am guarding. It looks very plausable and would virtually force all venison right past my stand.
Has anyone had similar situations and what was your remedy?
