I set up a little blind 15 yards from a feeder. Is this too close?
Depends on your deer. If they like to circle the feeder before coming in, then probably yes. If they come straight in, then maybe not.
I've never used my pop up over a feeder. But where I have used it, I've seen a BIG BUCK walk in front of it at 15 yds. That day, I was in my lock-on about 100 yds away and all I could do was watch, since I was on a bow hunt. And I had just set it up the day before and without brushing it in. Just backed it up against a plum thicket. On another hunt, had a buck make a rub on a small cedar tree that was 2ft in front of my blind. Only had it up about 2 days.
Just depends on the deer where you hunt.
