Default Brushing in ground blinds

Who says you have to brush in ground blinds? I watched 3 bucks and this fawn all walk within 10 yards of this one last night.

Have a big old nanny or mature buck come within eyesight of it and you'd probably see a bit more reaction.
I've had deer spook from them and had them not give one a second look. I rattled/grunted in a very nice buck a couple youth season ago and when he got to where he could see the blind (it'd been out for 24 hours), he bolted out of our dreams.
I prefer to brush them in and leave them out for 2 or so weeks before hunting it.

Yea I would agree.. This blind has been there all season(and isn't mine). Interesting to see just how much they didn't care about it. I guess the guy hasn't been hunting it. I think the one buck was 3.5, the other two 2.5.

What is it on private ground and you know the Guy? If it's Government Land the Blind on most is illegal.
