These weren't. I was bowhunting and the gobbler wouldn't come closer than 50 yards, but the hens flew down into my decoys and pecked around for a half hour before moving farther into the field. Sorry the photo is blurry. It was shot through the mesh.Originally posted by bovinahunter
Are turkeys skittish when around a ground blind? I have never hunted out of one, but I know deer spook easily when they see a ground blind. Can you just set it up in a field?
You should brush in a popup blind if you are hunting deer. This isn't necessary for hunting turkey.Originally posted by Bowpredator
So deer get spooky around them? I havent ever used one but I am thinking of getting one to bowhunt out of this fall on public ground. I dont like the idea of having to pack a climbing stand in and out everytime and I'm not going to leave one of my stands out there for somebody to steal so i though maybe getting a popup ground blind might be the answer since it would be a lot lighter and I'd rather hunt from the ground anyway. But, if the deer get real spooky around them, I dont know now.
