How hidden your stand locations and deer blinds are, is critical to your entire hunt. A deer stand that does not allow you to get in an and out of the stand without spooking deer has to be changed – there can be no exception! The 20 deer test is simple: Can you get in and out of the stand without spooking 20 deer on the food plot that you are near? If not, you need to make significant changes to the location of the deer blind, the entrance to the blind, screening or the to the size of the food plot. Here is why and how to make sure that your treestands and deer blinds pass the test!
