Anyone ever considered hunting from a blind with a bow in a small confined area? Here is something that may help you out. I had a particular blind that I hunted for two years in an area that you could only see 20 yards in front and 30 yards 45 degrees left and right. The woods were thick in front of me and pines to the right of that. I found that hunting wood lines like this make a huge difference. The deer seem to travel that line regularly. I knew the deer were always going to come from in front of the blind so I hinge cut two small trees to direct them to a shooting lane in front of the blind. I have killed 4 deer from that blind and every shot was 10-12 yards. I was always conscious of my scent and movement being that close to the deer. Don't get me wrong I have been busted in the blind by a few mature doe's but they are hard to fool! So if you were considering this tactic it can be very rewarding and can put food on the table if done correctly.
