Just put a ground blind out today. Should I wait a few days before I hunt out or would y'all hung out of it tonight?

Hunt it - I put one out Sunday morning after the hunt and hunted it in the evening. I had deer come in but not in range. I don't think it was the blind it was just the path they were on. Monday morning had a doe eating a pile of hand corn 10 yds in front of me before legal and never spooked. She ran off just before legal when a young buck came in to test the water. She wanted none of it and he looked for more receptive does in the other direction.

Depends on the area of the state. Seen them turn inside out the first time they saw a new placed pop-up blind and other times not pay to much attention to it. If you have brushed in very well then I would have hunted tonight.

In my experience with pop ups, I've had same day setup that produced a kill and pre scouted setups produce the same...but also have had plenty of same day set ups result in me getting busted. I should include I hunt public land and deal with paranoid deer. I will also note that my same day set up I made darn sure no deer was going to come in from behind the pop up and I had the outline of the roof broken up with limbs and brush.

I've noticed that once they get used to them they get tuned into when there is a change, like when the windows are open or the shoot thru mesh is gone. We leave ours in a ready to shoot state once the season gets going.

I threw a feeder and ground blind up and had deer the next day at it.. one little rinky dink buck was the only one skeptical. The rest of the deer didn't care, hopefully I'm knocking this 8 pt. Out this weekend. They only come out in the mornings so I luckily have this weekend of weather permitting. How do you think people kill deer in the forest without a tree climber.. Throw a ground blind down and hunt.

Ok. So I put the blind up and I have hunted it the last two mornings. Have not seen anything. Before I put the popup out I was seeing something ever time I went. I have not seen anything. Did I screw up by putting this blind out?

My guess would be yes. Put up a TC and see if they are hitting the feeder at night. That will answer your question. Different areas, the deer will react differently. Where I have hunted in South Texas, they will not go near the blind for a week or more if you do not brush it in very well.
