Almost that time again!!! Have a few questions????? #7414600 01/25/19 02:27 PM

I know itís to early now however when do you guys put your blinds out/up?


I have cameras all over my property and something that I have noticed is I have a designated feeder 30 yards away from an elevated box of line that is 5 feet off the ground. I normally use this particular feeder for hunting pigs however during the day it seems to have always attracted turkeys during the spring !
I have always hunted turkeys from a ground blind and I was wondering has anyone ever done it from a 5ft elevated box?
What are the proís and conís of this

Below is a picture of my pig blind that I am about to throw some green paint on this weekend .
I was just wondering since turkey are all over the feeder that is 30 yards in front of this stand maybe I could get away with using this set up rather than having to put a ground blind out .

Just wondering

Thanks

Use it. Won't be a problem.

Usually put popups out a week or two before season. You can put one up and 30 minutes later shoot one. They don't care.

You can use that one. Put you a line of corn from your feeder to about 15 yards from the blind. Then make you a line at 15 yards (think upside down T as you look from blind to feeder). If the birds are regular on camera it's that easy sometimes.

If youíre hunting them over a feeder, youíre missing everything that makes spring turkey hunting fun.

Either the stand that is there or a ground blind will work. The joy of turkey hunting is calling them in though. Not deer hunting them over a feeder.
