Re: Deer Stand or The Ground
I prefer to still hunt and play the wind to sneak up on something be it deer or elk. For me it's more satisfying but if I had a stand or knew some good locations I would probably sit at sunrise and walk the middle of the day and come back in the evening perhaps. Problem is my feet get so dang cold if I sit too long and I have to get moving. In Idaho it's hard finding good treestand trees. We don't have the hardwoods like in the midwest, east and south. The pines here are full of branches and tougher to clear out. I've thought long and hard about getting a portable pop up ground blind. That would probably be the best compromise. I could put a small heater in there, have my coffee and stay comfortable.
