There are countless ways to hunt animals out in the wild. You can stalk them, you can shoot them from a tree stand, or, you can use one of the many hunting blinds offered on the market today. The key factor here is that you do not want whatever it is that you are hunting, to see you. The saying goes, “If you can see the eyes of what you are shooting, you can be sure that they can see you.” Therefore, unless you want to be seen, and subsequently scare away your potential trophy bucks, its best to stay hidden.
Hunting blinds are a great accompaniment to any hunting trip because they are generally easy to set up, and ample enough to fit a few people or some chairs in the blind. Blinds also help with the ever-pesky task of blocking you scent from reaching the animals nostrils (if the blind is fully enclosed). This is not failsafe, but it does help a bit when justifying the use a hunting blind. Let us face it; as much as we want to believe otherwise, hunting game out of a tree stand or stalking your prey is not for everyone and a hunting blind
is a great alternative/addition.
There are a wide range of factors that could affect your ability to hunt in any one certain manner, and this is where ground blinds come into the picture as an option. You are hunting from the ground, so there is no extraneous movement that you have to do to get your game. Many of the new rest even offer shoot through windows so that you do not even have to get out of the enclosure. Can you believe that? You can sight in with your weapon (assuming the animal is in close relative distance) and fire away without them ever knowing you were even there!
