Trent tells Jim and Trav that blinds need to be placed well ahead of time to give the deer an opportunity to somewhat get used to them. When it comes to blind location there are a couple factors to consider. First, Trent says it depends on what your hunting with – bow or rifle as that will determine the effective and practical distance you can shoot from. Secondly, the wind is crucial. Strategically placing your blind or treestand and also establishing multiple points of entry based on prevailing wind directions can set you up for success. Trent tells Jim and Trav that hunting nice bucks is an opportunity you prepare for all year long with scouting, running trail cameras, habitat work and more, and you don’t want to miss a perfect shot because you were ill prepared. So, he’ll explain how he eliminates any obstructions in the immediate hunting area by cutting limbs, clearing paths on the way to the stand and even managing does. Mature bucks are hard to hunt because they are smart and have learned how to be evasive, so Trent says hunters have to play the game smart and well in order to get those tag filling opportunities.
