Bowhunting deer from a ground blind can be challenging, but also very rewarding with enough patience and preparation.
Today we’ll consider a few ways to increase your chances of success during your next hunt.
Generally speaking, it’s a good idea to choose a larger blind for bowhunting. This way you’ll have enough space to move around comfortably, draw your bow and stow your gear.
Pick the Right Spot.
Set up downwind of travel routes and at the correct distance for your shot; think 20 to 25 yards from the trail for bowhunting. Place the blind among existing cover whenever possible, and never place it on a hilltop or ridge where it will be more conspicuous.
Use brush from the surrounding environment to help your ground blind blend in with its surroundings.
Darken the Blind.
You want to keep deer from sensing any movement within the blind, so close most windows except for one side while you hunt. You may also want to wear black clothing to prevent deer from spotting you inside the blind. Our blinds feature a matte-black interior finish that makes it easy for hunters to stay cloaked in shadow.
Practice Makes Perfect.
Make sure to practice your shots from a seated or kneeling position before you head out to hunt. Many hunters only practice standing, which may be impossible when bowhunting from a ground blind.
