As stated in an earlier discussion, I’m new to deer hunting, including crossbow and rifle. As an older hunter (71), with a hip replacement, I’m not interested in sitting in a tree stand and potentially falling that might require a trip to surgery and a difficult hip revision. So, I bought a portable ground blind in hopes of being safe and getting lucky this, my second hunting season. What I need to know is, when should I set up my blind on my private property. The season here in Wisconsin starts September 12 this year. Right now I’m looking at setting it up a week ahead of the start of the season since I’ll be gone until then. Will this work? I plan to blend it in with its surroundings but need to know if I’m jeopardizing my success by placing it so close to the season opening when I plan to start hunting. Thanks.
