Most bowhunters hang treestands 17 to 20 feet up the tree. However, that’s a general rule, and doesn’t apply to every situation. Remember: Use cover to conceal your outline and movements. The less cover you find, the higher you should hang your treestand, within reason.
Do Ground blinds spook deer?
In a nutshell, the bad news is that ground blinds can spook deer for several reasons. Deer are especially sensitive to sight, sound, and scent, which means that the improper use of ground blinds can increase the risk of deer fleeing from your property and going right into your neighbor’s freezer.

How do you make a deer blind out of pallets?
Just staple roofing felt around the inside or outside of it. Then wrap it with camo burlap, screw some leafy branches to it (or pine limbs), erect it on an elevated platform and you have a shooting house instead of a ground blind. Add another stack of two pallets to the front side and now you’ve got a two-man blind.
Should you pee in a deer scrape?
That’s quite possible, because urine is basically the same thing after it comes in contact with air and soil. The urination tactic is effective in prompting bucks to approach the scrapes, smell the ground and feverishly re-work them.
Why do hunters wear camouflage if deer are color blind?
Hunting clothes and camo are designed to make you invisible to hunters as well as deer. Everyone knows the way to be safe while hunting is to wear blaze orange clothes. Deer have limited vision, they see in “black and white”. The bright orange color is highly visible to other hunters, but can’t be seen by deer.
How far away can a deer smell you?
ANSWER: Under normal conditions, a deer can smell a human that is not making any attempt to hide its odor at least 1/4 mile away. If the scenting conditions are perfect (humid with a light breeze), it can even be farther.
