got a little tired of borrowing a friends blind and having to put it up each and everytime and taking it down again. The deer get spooked by it I am sure, even had one blow at it last week before the sun came up because the moon must have been shinning on it, so I built one.
I am in deep woods so it was easy. The majority of the shots will be from 10-20 yards and a very small confined area.
I have set up at a fence corner. You can see on one side where the deer are jumping the fince in and out of the area I unt and they are walking down the fence line and down a path that runs in front of the blind.
I have been putting corn out on a regular basis and last week I used one of those acorn based attractants which they are still trying to dig out of the ground.They must like it. I wont mention the name due to any spam ordinance here but the deer absolutely love it.
I made the blind using 3 trees and wraping one of those camouflage fabric sheets. I then cut oine trees to use as my backdrop and then cut a variety of trees for the rest of the cover. Even put on a roof of sorts in case the suns shines on me to much and I make a shadow, its very wooded so that should be kept to a minimum. I even made a door and the area that I will shoot through is about 12 inches high and 1.5 ft. wide. I am really more worried about pulling the bow back and not having the movement caught but if I get to pull back without getting caught the rest is easy.
Any thoughts or suggestions?
