I have a popup deer blind that I've used a few times but have never seen anything out of it yet. My question is does it need to be up against the trees or could it just be on the edge of a wheatfield? I was wondering if it might frighten the deer or that they would be suspicious of seeing it there when it wasn't there before. I'm bowhunting so I need to be close-within about 40 yds or less before I can take a shot. Also I use the ghillie suit and was wondering if maybe I should just make a mat & lay down in the high grass & be less noticed-although very uncomfortable for a couple hrs. What are your thoughts & opinions?
