    Default Whitetail...Blind, Tree stand, or heavy cover

    How do you hunt for Whitetail? Do you like to use a tree stand, do you like to use a blind, or do you just sit in some brush and wait? I'd love to know, I'm going to go for the first time, and I'd like to see what experienced hunters prefer.

    Thanks!

    I voted treestand, because that's what I prefer, but I'll be hunting out of a blind this year due to an injury.

    Tree stand because it gets you up out of their line of sight and your chances of getting winded are less...For the most part.

    Forgot to mention that a ground blind would be good on your own property or someone you know..but i hunt the national forests so it would be to much trouble for "me" to set up/take down every time i went.

    I do all 3 and have great luck with all of them. Really depends on if I am hunting horns or meat and which land I hunt.

    Tree stand is the only way I have ever hunted. But I have heard several success stories from just brushing yourself in on the ground. Good luck and God speed.

    Like tree stands, Love the ground blind. you can have turkey and deer all around you as long as you watch your scent. You can get away with a little more movement too. I think a well placed blind can put you in spots that you couldn't hunt with a tree stand, and vice versa.

    Agree with all above. Like to add I got my doe last weekend by setting in between a couple of corn rows. I was watching an area that had just been harvested that day. My point is be ready to adapt to changing conditions.

    I like a good ground cover...I used to hunt one area that I had 5 improvised blinds on...they were good producers I also have a climber for when I want to get in quick on a new area or state land...

    Homemade, quick, portable, 2 minute set up less than 2 lbs, looks perfectly natural in the autumn woods. I use two of these panels. Extremely effective. No need to brush it in. Makes me very mobile. BTW, can't stand heights!
