This is such a great sight, lots of info and knowledge. I am new to archery, bought a PSE bow about 6 months ago from a friend at work to see if I would like the sport. I have been diligently practicing almost nightly to better my form, aim and distance. I am thoroughly looking forward to the season begining here in Kansas and would like some input on a blind versus a tree stand. I do not particularly care for heights so I am rather aprehensive about a tree stand. I have heard some benifits to a stand, i.e scent, longer range to prepare, etc. but have not heard to much about a blind other than the deer will "spot" you. I saw in another post that someone uses a blind for turkey hunting and this is also something that I would like to do in the future. Any insight on either would be most helpful.
