    It's kind of a funny thing for me. I always use a fixed tree stand but the few deer I've shot with a bow always came when I was on the ground lol One time I had just finished strapping my ladder on after switching spots and a nice 6 pt came within 40 yds to see what was going on and me with my stand in my hand instead of a bow lol busted never saw another deer on that hunt figures

    I use ladder stands for deer hunting for the most part. I have 1 regular fixed tree stand, and one that is built into the tree out of scrap lumber. Just bought a ground blind from Rhino Labs last year for turkey hunting. One of the nicer ground blinds I have seen, and a little cheaper than the "big name" brands. While not advertised as waterproof, my brother and dad sat in it for rifle season during a few rains, and said it didn't leak a drop. I've used it once hunting coyotes in the rain, and never saw a leak. It has the wrap around window (like a double bull blind) on two sides, and nice shooting windows on the other 2 sides. Shoot through netting all around. Magnetic solid window covers, so no zipper or velcro noise. Not as cheap as sme of the blinds I've seen out there, but worth every penny for me.

    Yeah, I know I'm grumpy and opinionated.

    We have an Ameristep G30. It is water resistant, and since it was wearing a $74 price tag instead of the usual $99.83 price tag, its all good.
