I agree with you packer and your logic makes perfect sence to me. for a native who has the time to find and track and pattern these deer a stand may work out very good. but for someone out for a 7-10 day hunt thats just not an option in my book, unless your hunting private land and on a guided hunt where every thing was done for you, like i said before i have had time to pattern and scout and used a blind for 3 days straight and didnt see a single deer. for me spot and stalk or still hunting works the best and have been the most productive, most people will tell you if you wanna see a muley stay still but if you wanna shoot a muley go find them. when i think of muley hunting i think you have to be agressive in your tactics to be sucessfull.
