FishingWebGuy Posted September 5, 2012 Share Posted September 5, 2012 This year I plan on doing a lot more blind hunting that usual. Mostly because my uncle who's ag property I hunt has taken down nearly every tree over hundreds of acres so my tree stand options become more limited each year. My double bull dark horse arrived yesterday -- which is sweet by the way. It is my 2nd blind and an incredible step up from the wire frame thing I've used in previous years. I used to always think of blind hunting as a compromise when you could not find a tree but this year I am really looking forward to the placement opportunities it will provide. Not to mention protection from the wind and rain.I am probably going to set the blind up in the haymow to absorb some good country scent over the next week+ before opener. If we get a nice gentle rain, I think I'll set it up in that also just to try an help remove some of that factory smell.Yesterday while thinking about blind locations on the properties I have been scouting I realized that I bet scent control is a lot better in a blind also. In my mind, not having the wind blowing directly across your body and then heading down wind has got to help things. Has anyone found this to be true in the field? Do you think your chances of getting winded are reduced in a blind? I'm not saying I'd want to ignore scent control when blind hunting but all things being equal, I can't see how the blind wouldn't help reduce the human scent being carried around. Thoughts?
