    Default Which way have you taken a deer the most?

    Comments on which way you chose please.

    I have seen and got more deer on the ground then in a blind or tree stand. How about you?

    All from the ground. I did try a ground blind for three days. On the third day it was 90 plus degree's in the ground blind. I ended up taking off clothing as the it got hotter. i was in my boxer briefs three hours later Sweating like crazy. Then the winds picked up which was great but I had forgotten to use the ground stakes. The blind tried to lift off while I was in my briefs. It's funny now but not while it was all going on. I ended up selling my ground blind one week later.

    All from the ground, except maybe 2 that I shot from a half built cabin, so that may qualify as a blind.

    Zero from a tree. Right at 30 on the ground but 6 or 8 of them were ambushed from behind piled up branches or whatever so I guess could be considered as taken from a blind.

    No trees here where I hunt. Everything I have been able to harvest has been from spot and stalk hunting.

    20+ deer from a tree, maybe 2-3 from the ground. Some stand heights as low as 8 feet, but most around 15 feet. I use alot of ladder stands due to the ease of getting into them. Deer don't seem to care if theree's a ladder up against the tree. I've had does bed down between the legs of the ladder and the tree before. Never shot one from a blind.

    Spot and stalk have taken all my deer, but I still spend hours in blinds, hoping to change that.
