If anyone is awake and looking at this you may be as desperate as I am. My daughter shot her first deer last year and is with me today. She experienced her first buck fever yesterday and wasn’t able to make a solid shot and passed on a big buck. I have a spot looking over a creek bottom With big bucks coming in around nine or 10 AM. However visibility is about 50 yards down the creek and 20 yards to the feeder. Or I can hunt in a tower blind overlooking 20 acres full of mesquites and Oates But the deer don’t seem to be eating the oats or the corn out of the feeder. So, do I hit the woods and hopes my daughter can shoot a deer and put up with less visibility or do I go to the tower blind with more visibility and Deer possibly passing through, even though I have no pics here?As the crow flies these are 100 yards apart. I know it’s always a guessing game, just looking for the majority’s opinion.

Young, inexperienced Hunter, give her the better odds with a much shorter shot IMO.
