To any of you with some whitetail experience from ground blinds. Are most of your successful blind set ups on field edge/clearings,or do you have good luck in the woods also. I have only used my blinds for turkey hunting in the past. But I am heading out in a few hours to set one of mine up on my land to deer hunt from. I know I have to brush it in well. My primary concern is the spots I have picked out are in woods,as I have only wooded land no fields.

Usually when I use mine in the woods I will put under a pine or something and brush it in good. I usually put it up near an intersection of a couple of trails. I killed one at five yards like that a couple of years ago. Make sure you get all of the leaves out of the inside.

2 excellent points in this post. Under a nice pine tree in the woods while brushing it in works very well. Alwasy remove the leaves from the inside, decreases noise.

do you always have to brush them in the woods or can you set it up and not hunt it for a month or so to let the deer get used to it?

One of my best set ups is one of my blinds. I have three ground blinds set up and they are all on the edge of draws/field edges. I feel more comfortable with tree stands back in the woods but obviously if you have a clean entry/exit to your blind, you can have success with it anywhere.

I set mine up today on an inside corner between hardwoods and thick pines. I backed it up under a pine and brushed it in with pine limbs. This corner has always been a great spot so it work great.
