Have just come in from setting up my ground blind and need some help with the setup. I figure there are some pros here that will have the right advice. Now, I am not a novice. I have hunted deer since 1963 and have missed my share, but I have managed to get my skinning knife bloody every year since 1963. Well I am older now and the old joints are catching up with me so I am going wuss this year and crawl into a ground stand. Used to tree stand or walk drive for group hunts or simply park my rear on a rock or leaned up against a tree. Got the job done but like I say age does things to ya. So.......... This year I am going to a ground blind and try and whack the enemy from there. About a year ago I built a garden shed, in my garden of course. This is situated 80 feet East of my house (my 6:00 position) and the East side (my point position) fronts 10 year pasture and 55 acres of timber. To the 9:00 position is another 40 acres of 10 year and pond with another 80 acres of timber there. 30 yards in front of my firing point, South of the grapes, rhubarb and asparagus is a set of apple trees. Nice trees and nice apples. My horse likes these apples and unfortunately about 1/2 of the deer population here likes these apples too. A little further South, out of camera, is a horse tank and block of salt. The deer like these too. When they come out the timber they have a hard time deciding whether to lick salt first or have an apple and then lick salt. (Insert curse word here or a couple). Now a problem has developed that urinates me off. Bucks have started using these trees as points of reference, i.e. the suckers are horning my trees and one of the SOB's has actually decided to develop a scrape under one of my best trees. I will not tolerate this, just will not tolerate this. Something has to die to pay for this damage. I usually don't kill bucks, let them pass and take a nice non-gray faced doe. Gonna change this year, a buck or bucks will DIE! So there's kinda the set-up, now to my problem. I will be using that Model 870 with the nice goose barrel on it, picture #1. A good 'Ol Mama, she will group any number, flat, within 3-4 inches in a center target at a little less than 90 yards. I pull her out from under the bed every fall, dust her off and jack in a few. Makes a lot of noise, but what the Hey. The daisy Model 1849 is for head shots. I will be putting a bushel of apples just outside my firing port for those deer that stick their heads within 5 feet of me. That might be construed as "baiting" for you officanados, but my horse might need an apple as I wait. If a deer happens to have a sweet tooth, tough banana pudding. Now, if I need to wait up till 2:00 AM watching the news with my flashlight handy, I have the proper firepower to create some action, not pictured. Picture #3 is a shot of those apple trees that those deer are destroying, as I say about 40 yards away. I realize it will be a tough shot and the line of fire is quite congested (heheh). Picture #2 is of some apples hanging in those trees. i figure there will be enough apples there to drop clear through 2nd season or until i run out of slugs. They are going to DIE!. I need a lot of dog food for the winter. Now my question finally. I have got a nice comfortable easy chair, a nice space heater, some old Playboys to entertain myself with during slow periods of waiting. and an adequate supply of popcorn. Now I shoot left handed so would you guys put the coffee pot on the left or right side? I'd hate to spill my coffee.
