How to Bow Hunt from the Ground

Hunting with bows dates back hundreds of thousands of ages. Humans have almost always gone on to use bow and arrows to hunt for animals and bows are probably amongst the oldest hunting tools to ever exist.

Now hunting has gone on to evolve a lot over the last couple of years, and so have the type of bows that people use. You can now hunt from great distances and from varying levels and points.

However, hunting from the ground while using a blind is still amongst the most popular methods of hunting.

This helps them stay hidden, get as close as they possibly can and get the best possible aim and understanding of their target movements, without getting spotted.

Now you need to set up your blind nearby, without getting spotted.

You need to get rid of all the small branches, leaves and anything else that you feel could alarm your targets, should you accidentally step on them. A smart thing would be to attach these items on the blind to make it look more natural and a part of the landscape.
