How you doing maam and welcome to the forum. The right place for tips and advice. Don't be a stranger to the site, the last female that posted just disappeared. Maybe she thought I talked too loud or something LOL.

It's always interesting to hear the stories from the elders in my community about the "old ways" of hunting and how the deer were viewed as majestic animals and known as "brothers" along with all animals who share the bounties of mother earth. I think it's safe to say that we (hunters and outdoorsman)still keep that tradition going as we enter their world.

Nothing wrong with ground

Hey K.I.D.D. I am a bowhunter and only hunt from the ground. I have done both and prefer ground, as deer are unpredictable, so trust me you are not missing much, I have found i get more action from the ground.

Just because there were more deer doesn't mean it was easier to kill'em. You know what they used for covering their scent?........smoke. Weird.

no but it does mean they had a better chance of seeing one. They were still great hunters.

Actually, I have read that there are more deer now than there have ever been. All that being said, I like being able to look down into brush. I see much more than trying to look through it. Because of health reasons, I am now relegated to ground blinds.

I started hunting 4 years ago and i have bagged some big bucks on the ground and in a stand. In a stand you can see a lot farther and your scent is off the ground. In a blind you have to hunt with the wind but inside you can move around a little more and in a stand your a little more visable i like both

I love my treestands,But Have never Killed a deer from one..it's always been on the ground just standing next to a tree or sitting in a blind I fix up if I'm out hunting in the afternoon...

Native Americans are like the best hunters...It's amazing to hear stories of how there grandfathers could get soo close to a deer and not even get noticed..
