Ok I have a popup blind set up that has been eaten by the stinkin cows, it's still there just torn up. Going to put a new one out tonight after the evening feed so I can bowhunt an old 10 point that has been coming in. If I go in and set it up at 9pm tonight and spray it down with scent killer would it hurt to hunt it in the AM? Like I said there has been one there for over 3 months but the cows have finally got to it and it's kind of collapsed. Thanks for the help guys!

The buck I'm chasing, not huge but a huge bodied old buck.

Nice big buck, you bow or gun hunting? If rifle, then you can set up a bit further, cows will find the new blind. They know the place as well as deer and will know when something is "different", plus they already have you dialed in so to speak. If thats all you can do, then only thing to loose is another pop-up maybe. I'd loose a couple for that buck though.

i put one up around lunch on a sunday and my target was 15 20 yards on corn in front of it the next morning, too bad it was the day after deer season ended.

i dont think you will have a problem.

My first bow buck was shot at 20 yards about 30 min after having driven the truck up to spot and listening to radio while busting limbs to brush in a blind. Not planning on hunting that afternoon but just couldn't stand not to. IMO worst case he doesn't show..

Blind I wanted to hunt the other day was leaning from rain, and filled with hornets. Went to Wal-Mart and bought camo burlap. Drove my four wheeler to where I wanted to hunt and wrapped the four wheeler in the burlap. Sat in a folding chair behind it. Laid my field backpack on the seat for a shooting rest. Took a doe using this setup. Oh, I also set it up 2 hours before I took her.

Living proof of what I've been told, that the best time to hunt a stand is the first time after setting it up.
