Please post photos of blinds / hides / stands...

Please post photos of your hides / stands / blinds etc. especially the shooting openings and any pictures you have that help put the distance to water / lick block into perspective.

Please say which outfit they're from, too.

Thank you kindly,

Ben

Thanks, Siewho. I like the large shooting window. But I would absolutely practice shooting through a couple of different openings, of course.

The shooting window is really quite small ie you only shoot thru the small opening of the shade cloth. Also should try to practice shooting from below ground ie upto chest level. The tendency is to shoot high! Many unwary hunters have fallen into this "optical illusion" together with buck fever meant lost and wounded animal.
