    During Shotgun and muzzleloader

    During shotgun and muzzleloader I gererally hunt from treestands as I due during bow. Do you do the same or do you still hunt from the ground or track?

    I primarily hunt from a tree stand b/c my properties are on the smaller side and I don't hunt state land during the firearm season except for bow only areas. But I have taken some walks and will consider using a blind if the oppurtunity is there.

    I always hunt on the ground due to a back injury. Last year was the first time I hunted using the xbow only and i found that though I really enjoy the bow hunting I did miss using the Muzzle loader; surprisingly I didn't miss using the shotgun at all.

    I always hunt from the ground. I have bad knees and am over weight. usually I flop down on a tree stump somewhere. If I ever get to it I want to make a tree seat out of a piece of plywood that I saw somewhere. Rope goes from one side around the tree and into the other side. One side is keyholed for adjustment. Screw in tree step on the back of the tree to keep the rope from sliding down.

    I love the tree stands because you can see farther.After I get down I
    will walk and look for fresh sign or a new place for a stand.

    I usually hunt from the ground with guns. I figure with a firearm, a treestand is un-neccasary weight to carry out while I'm dragging a deer. After bowhunting for so long, it's just too easy to kill a deer with a gun from a stand.
    I may not even buy gun tags this year. If I still have archery tags, I'll continue to hunt with the bow during the gun season.

    Always on the ground, or in a blind with a gun.

    I like the still hunt with Shotgun/ Muzzleloader. But it depends on the day! Where I am at! If I am out of work late. I walk. If I have all day I might sit the stand till afternoon. Then still hunt out! If it is rainy I will hit the blind. No need to get wet if I dont have to lol! Bow I am in the stands as long as I can. I am thinking of still hunting with my long bow!
