Now I'm new to deer hunting and have a real delima. The deer are litterally all over the place but with the overgrown pastures and thick woods I can't really see to get a shot over maybe 100 Yards MAX. most places it's more like 100 FT. Now for the question... should I put up a tree stand or try to build a blind on the ground. In the trees it's even more difficult to see any distance but I have heard it keeps your scent high so the deer are less likely to smell ya. But if I was on the ground their are a couple spots where a longer shot greater than 50 less than 100 yards would be possible. Also can anyone explain why the deer seem to be out only at night? Some times I see them at 6:30AM but never in the day and they are around just after dark. This is on my land so I see lots of sign but rarely see the deer.
