Sit there with the rifle barrel hanging out the window? Or do you raise and sit it up in the window when you see your shooter?

i was watching a hunting video during lunch here and got into a discussion with a fellow friend who we both gave pro's and cons.....

when you are not at the lease the window is normally closed.
maybe wrap camo around your barrel?
by leaving it up there from the moment you get to the lease the morning of the hunt you may scare the deer as its something different.

I have never thought about this. I am up 15 ft in the air and have often wondered rather than trying to be quiet couldnt you just leave it up there?

Stand it in the corner

I forgot to add that I haven't been in a blind in over 20 years!

Lean in corner unless I am hunting on the ready during the rut. In my neck of the woods you normally only have seconds to make a shot on a buck that's chasing, so you better be ready.

leaning it in the corner seems like the right thing to me to. My friend pointed out he has missed out on some good deer due to taking to long to get into position. i figured a barrel hanging out the window would scare them off.

I have had it in the corner, deer came in to feeder grab the rifle bump the wall it was gone.
Now have barrel out window with butt in my lap, not so much movement.

Practice making quick shots. Every time I go to the range I'll try to shot 5-6 rounds like I was in a hunting situation. Throw it up and make a shot. Done it enough now I'm comfortable in any situation hunting should bring from a blind.

In my box blind, mine is in the window sill ready to go, my visibility is restricted area wise, so I don't want to be fooling with getting in position when I need to be GTG.

In my tripods, my rifle is usually laying cross wise on the top rails, same thing. In both cases the safety is on until I commit to the shot though, that only takes a hairs second and no thought.

I'm not in the "lean in a corner" camp. Movement is what scares deer. Not a slight change to the environment such as a barrel sticking out of a blind window. My guns on the sill facing the direction I expect to shoot. This way I minimize movement in the blind and of the gun barrel.
