    I hunt completely out of blinds and hunter house things. My grandpa would never try to rattle or grunt inside. He said it wouldn't work in a blind. Now I'm hunting alone and I want to try it. Do you think it will work the same? Ive never called in a deer.

    It will work. I have done it several times. The drawback is the same drawback that a ground blind always has; you can't see as far as you can from up in tree. You will have less prep time for the shot. Have at it. Just do not hold your calls after the sequence is done. Put them down and be ready in case something comes in fast.

    I shot my last two bucks over a decoy while rattling/grunting in a blind.

    I love to use them in a blind. I always just hold them near a window. You can be directional in a blind too. I had deer in front of me and I pulled the flap back on a back window and grunted. They thought something was coming in behind me.

    Works fine. Just do it near a window which will allow the grunts, bleats and rattling to project farther. I've done it many times successfully.

    Hey ProV, not to change subject but which decoy do you use? Brand also.

    I have a pair of "montanas" I used for years but last year bought a "full body" which I use in openings where the deer can come in from numerous directions.
