There are already a lot of stands in those woods, but the property owner possibly wants to hunt them this year. AND, I prefer to shoot from a ground blind, being my first year with a bow. I feel more comfortable with a "straight-forward" shot, versus a quartered, from-the-tree-stand shot. I haven't put a camera up yet, but I plan to buy the new M-80 from Moultrie tomorrow and put it out this weekend, possibly with a salt block.
The property owner says the deer are funneling along the right edge of the property right next to that new subdivision and coming up along that field to head to the field and water source in the upper left, RIGHT through where I want to put the blind. He has given me permission to plant that tiny little block next the corn field with some clover to start a teeny food plot. He also is going to talk to the neighboring farmer (that owns both of those corn fields) and make sure it's okay that I may retrieve any deer from his property if they happen to run that way after impact. I'm pretty darn excited!
