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!How many of yall use blinds when hunting on the ground, and have you had success using them.
