    Default Hunting from forgotten blinds

    https://oodmag.com/hunting-from-forgotten-blinds/

    Find an old, abandoned farmhouse, or other building, somewhere out in deer country, to use as a blind that time forgot.
    What can I but enumerate old themes,
    First that sea-rider Oisin led by the nose
    Through three enchanted islands, allegorical dreams,
    Vain gaiety, vain battle, vain repose,
    Themes of the embittered heart, or so it seems.
    -- "The Circus Animalsí Desertion" by William Butler Yeats

    I have watched a few hunting shows where they did this exact thing with good success. If you think about it, it is better than setting up a ground blind or tree stand new to the area.
    Deer would see the old building as just part of their natural surroundings.

    That depends on where you live, and what the bylaws dictate.

    I have climbed up some rickity hideouts in the past but yeah I will use anything that is safe and maybe if it is iffy. I would not let my son go on anything that looked iffy.

    Exactly. Totally legal where i live. Taken multiple different species (small and big game) from inside my house using rimfire, centrefire, shotgun and crossbow.
    The wilderness is not a stadium where I satisfy my ambition to achieve, it is the cathedral where I worship.

    I've shot a few squirrels out of the outhouse if that counts. Although I don't do that anymore as its hard on the ears.
