I may be acquiring a couple new properties this week to hunt. One 30 acre property, and one very large farm (not sure of the acreage yet, both properties are very promising for me to get permission). I plan on hunting from a natural ground blind in both locations. I've built plenty in the past for turkey and duck season, but I've never done it for deer hunting. My questions are: how long before I plan to hunt the property do I build the blind? Should I build more than one on each property to anticipate changing wind directions for different days? If I maximize my scent control before walking into the woods, can hunting from a blind be as affective as hunting from a stand? If any of you guys have had success in the past with natural ground blinds, any advice would be a huge help!
