    I used to have a stand and climbing sticks set up for practice til they all got stolen. Now I just shoot from the roof for the last month before season starts. It definitely helps. I try to go the extra mile and set up my 3D deer in a brush line with just a small window exposing the vitals.

    We have a practice stand out back. It is in a tough area to shoot and gives us a great challenge. Then we put one in the front yard for long range. Next month we will probably start shooting. We also use the blind in the side yard.

    Never hunted from a stand, but if I did I'd set one up in the yard and practice from it for sure. It's a whole different kettle of fish shooting from above ground at different angles.

    I have one set up year round in the back yard. With safety rope and harness. Really is amazing taking your first shots from stand b4 you warm up. I walk to a point in the yard and throw one of the cheap block targets like you get at GM or Dick's. Up the stand I go and take a few shots, sometimes in hunting cloths but not always. Very enlightening! I have 2 deer targets (3d) set up to move around for different shots also.
