I hunt both and there are benefits to both, but prefer to be in a tree. I like the open and extra visibility.

Advantage for ground blind is where there are no trees that will work for the stand and they are a lot safer to take a nap in than a tree stand.

I'm split pretty even - depends on the weather.

My favourite is actually walk and stalk using a ghillie suit.

With the right setup, I would prefer to be in a tree (or elevated in some way). It helps with visibility and I can aim a little higher on the body to stretch my margin of error and still get a good low exit hole because of the higher angle.

Out of those two only, ground blind. If tripod had been listed, that would be my choice.

I like being out of the rain and snow. With a ground blind you can carry a small propane heater on those really cold days. I'm getting older and hurt more. frown

I will hunt whatever is the best for the given situation. I prefer to be elevated with a little more view and as mentioned previously the shot angle. However, although I will hunt a hanging (lock on style) or climbing stand, I prefer a ladder stand or tripod. The times when it's raining, below 40 degrees or windy as all get out I'm ready to be on the ground in a pop up/shell blind/box blind with my Mr. Heater lil' Buddy.

I'd be happy with just sitting on the dang gate right now! Lol but if those 2 were my choice only, I'd go ground because I have a tendency to get a little too comfy when I hunt. Best zzzzz's I get!

I prefer an elevated stand, but will use a ground blind if the area doesn't have a big enough tree. I like to have the option of both in case its raining and I need a pop-up type blind to stay dry.

I hate hunting out of ground blinds but I will if needed. I havent cared for ladder stands too much until this year as I killed my best buck to date out of one in KS. My 2nd biggest buck was shot out of a tripod which I HATE. I really prefer to be about 25'-30' up in a tree. That is my preference however, i realize that there is a place for all stands mentioned so it would depend upon the location and the weather.

Depending on what you chose for next year....Go big. Buy a really good ground blind such as a Double Bull or a really good hanging stand. take a look at the Woodsie Too. That is the best treestand, hands down.
