What do you wear to ground blind?
A blind’s interior is dark, so leave your camouflage clothing at home, and wear a black jacket, hat, gloves and facemask instead. Fleece clothing is the quietest material available, and lets you come to full draw silently to avoid alerting deer. Hunting equipment is just as important as your clothing inside a blind.
Can a deer see me in a tree stand?
More often than not, a deer will smell you before seeing or hearing you when you’re in the tree stand. One of the most tried and true hunting tips is to play the wind when you hunt. If you’re always downwind, they can’t smell you.
How long does it take for deer to get used to a tree stand?
I think it depends on a few factors, but on average I would say 2 weeks. I have a few over food plots that deer seemed to be used to in a week, but most of those deer were younger deer.
What is the best height for a tree stand?
Most bowhunters hang treestands 17 to 20 feet up the tree. However, that’s a general rule, and doesn’t apply to every situation. Remember: Use cover to conceal your outline and movements. The less cover you find, the higher you should hang your treestand, within reason.
How high should you put a tree stand?
Here are several top tactics for hanging tree stands at the right height: Place your stand as high as possible when you can. Unless you’re after a particular shot on a whitetail you’ve been monitoring, getting above a deer’s normal line of site ( higher than 15-20 feet ) will improve your chances of success.
When should you stand in a tree stand?
As a rule, I don’t stand up as soon as I see a deer out of range. Instead, I get my bow in hand when I can, and try to stand only when the deer is within 75 yards and headed my way. If I’m surprised by a deer inside 40 yards, I usually sit tight unless it steps behind thick cover.
