There are two separate situations where ground blinds can be very productive even when trees are available. The first occurs when a buck is approaching a specific part of a feeding area regularly but using a variety of trails. The second opportunity occurs when hunting in locations that are protected from the wind. Typically, these areas have great sign – ditch and creek crossings and other narrow funnels used heavily by traveling deer – but they are nearly impossible to hunt from a tree stand because of swirling winds.
