I set a ladder stand yesterday on the property that I will be hunting this year. I went back today to cut shooting lanes etc.. Forgot to do yesterday:embara: I scouted a little and found a nice spot to set up a ground blind. It is about fifty yards from my stand. I have had one for two years and have never had it in the woods. How close is too close to a trail? The main trail would be about twenty yards away and it branches out into four small ones. Is it too late to set it up? The season starts Oct. 14. Is three weeks enough time to let it sit? Should I wait and just set it up the day I hunt? Is it better to set it up and leave it? I will brush it in well. Sorry for all the questions but I am trying to cover all the bases. I need some advice from people with experience hunting from ground blinds. Thanks fellow archers.
