I think the biggest disadvantage to ground hunting in general is safety. If someone shoots at a deer and misses, will the projectile be heading your way? Does some idiot think your movement is a deer? A ground blind or hiding in cover can make this a bigger risk. Personally, I would never use a ground blind on public land during a firearm season. No deer is worth my life!
Be sure to use a safety harness if you do hunt from an elevated position. Just getting 8 to 10 feet off the ground will help. I prefer 16 feet or higher.
