    I'm a ground blind man....only done the tree hugging thing a couple of times. I have a nice natural funnel on a Guernsey county hillside that the deer seem to be pushed through during gun season. here is my son's firs deer off of my ground blind.

    Treestand's overlooking crops (corn, soybeans), funnels, acorns, travel corridors.

    The more time you spend in the woods, the more you learn!

    All tree stand hunting:
    early bow season with a compound and switch to a cross bow when it gets colder.
    Rifle in pa. shot gun or muzzle in ohio.
    At our camp we have special seasons after everything is over with,Slingshots, throwing knives,boomergangs and landmines

    Bow season - tree stands over looking travel routes, crop fields, or the food plot; did the ground blind this year in Jan and scored on a doe at 12 yds. Gun and muzzeloader - Ground blinds, tree stand, small drives, still hunt.

    From a heated blind, over a good food plot, with the addition of a feeder. Call it what you want, but I call it "Educated and Comfortable"

    I bow hunt alot from tree stands and ground blinds. I also gun and muzzleloader hunt. We do everythign from drives to stand hunt. We kill them doing a little of everything. Here is 3 of the 8 that we have killed on my farm in the last 4 years. The one in the back of my truck is the smallest buck out of the 8.

    All of my deer have been taken from the ground(no blind). I even bow hunt from the ground. I do plan on getting a climber this year though, and also plan on building a a comfortable blind so I can get my 6 year old out and see if he can stick one

    On a serious note, I enjoy hunting all the seasons for deer. Bow, gun, & muzzleloader. My farorite time is the rut.

    I have done the ground blind and drive. But I am spoiled, my property is a few acres cut in the side of a 400 acre corn field the borders a wooded stream area. I have harvested 8 deer while sitting at my kitchen table drinking coffee watching the cornfield and when the deer come across the field either early or late in the day, step out and take one. I am not a trophy hunter, that ended many years ago. I enjoy the meat and will take a doe or button buck any time.

    Bowhunting from a stand especially during the rut and from the ground during the first three days of gun and the same during muzzleloader.

    <p>Never seen a deer from a treestand with a bow in my hands.&nbsp; Shot one with a muzzle loader from one last year.&nbsp; Normally I hunt from natural ground blinds near bedding areas or still hunt / stalk bedding areas when conditions allow a silent stalk.</p><p style="MARGIN: 0px">&nbsp;</p><p style="MARGIN: 0px">Sean</p>
