I used a camo ground blind that has a zipper window on each side. it was only 5ft high and i used a bucket to set on. i also bored 5gallon bucktet of corn about 20 yards away.....i have seen many deer but im still holding out for the big one......good luck and get a good one!
If your going to be hunting with a bow at all I would definately recommend the doghouse. Looks like it would be hard to make a akward shot with a bow out of the outhouse. Couldn't get the other one to pull up. If your just going to hunt with a gun either would be suitable. but I still like the doghouse.
I live in Wichita but hunt an hour west. We went out yesterday to scout before the opener. Saw a 14 & an 8 pointer chasing a doe. Oddly the bigger buck decided to walk. Bad part is this was on WIHA land...hopefully there won't be a bunch of people trying to hunt it opening day The rut is definately still on, saw LOTS of deer out.
I have always looked for ways to save money and gain skills. I have the firearms basics covered so I rarely buy firearms these days. But I do watch for bargains. Sometimes a little TLC with simple tools will let you bring an old gun back to life without investing a lot of money. One such find was a side by side 12 gauge marked “W. Richards” It is not from the fine English gun maker Wesley Richards, it is a cheap knock off copy probably made in Belgium about a hundred years ago...
