I wish a ladder/tree stand was an option for us, we just don't have the trees for it.

Have sat a few times in pop up with little luck. My best luck has been just sitting on the ground against a tree/bush with the wind in my favor. Would love to build a good brush blind, but never seem to get around to it.

Tired of the cows tearing up your popup blind, or just not wanting to leave it out for an entire season to get bleached out and ruined by the elements?
This is how some guys I know that hunt in south Texas construct their semi-permanent ground blind. Just determine a preferred location for your ground blind and using three or four T posts, hollow out an area in the brush larger than the foot print of your popup blind, and using some fence wire attach it to the posts. Brush it in really well leaving holes to shoot through, and leave an entrance where your wire will be shaped like a C with entrance off to one side.
You can then set up your popup inside where you are protected from rain and cold, and you can take the popup down, or put it up and the deer won't notice anything different.
When it's hot, you can just take a stool along and use the blind without the popup if you wish to.

Best thing is a Tri-Pod, I have 5 of them to bow hunt out of. I have a pop up that I take out for a quickie hunt on a trail but tri pods give me the best results.

I finally built me a bow hunting box blind. Got it all finished this weekend. Have it sitting in the corner of a two acre food plot.
