Just another thought.....someone mentioned about not disturbing too much of the area around you... i hunted a ridge full of scrub oaks one fall in michigan......I moved along the ridge to find a nice ambush site to sit... i stopped and looked back behind me and noticed some smaller brushy oaks i could sit in and have good back cover...About an hour later a nice buck ambled down the ridge directly towards me...i was expecting a 10 yd broadside shot... Unfortunately, he picked up my scent from where i originally stopped to pick out a spot to sit.....long story short.....Do not leave any scent outside of your comfortable shooting range....this buck hung up at about 25yds...sniffed the bushes where i stood ...looked right thru me , turned and walked the opposite way.

I get ASAT camo material and make myself a poncho. I try and find a big tree to sit against. One year I had an eight point whitetail bed down 10 feet from me. What a treat that was. Couldn't pull off the shot but it was still hunting and it proved to me that I can get as close as I need to on the ground.
