     deerhunter30, I would

     deerhunter30, I would like to welcome you to the contest and this site. I think you will find that BGH is one of the friendliest and best sites on the internet. Last year the contest was the first one. It got started late and we only had 15. I think we will do better than that this year. With more people giving their input on the rules and bringing up new ideas I'm looking forward to a much better contest this year.

Has anyone ever hunted

Has anyone ever hunted whitetail deer out of a ground blind?  I sometimes go to public land and don't want to leave a tree stand were people can take them, I have heard to many stories about people stealing deer stands and do not want to lose one of mine. I have tried hunting ground blinds before but it seems the deer pick these out very easily. If anyone has any ideas let me know.

I've tried to hunt from a ground blind with archery equipment with little succes. I'm 6'2'' and its hard for me to draw my bow back steady and have enough room to manuveur around to get  a shot. I like blinds for shotguns and muzzleloaders though.

Just take a thick bicycle lock and chain your treestand to the tree. If your far enough off the road noones gonna wanna haul it out of the woods anyways... lol

Maybe I will give that

Maybe I will give that locking up your tree stand a try. Can't beleive that you can't just put it out there with having to worry about someone stealing it. But hay thanks for the tip.
