Haven’t hunted white-tails from a ground blind in many years. I’m more of a tree-rat than chipmunk.
Promised the surgeon and the wife I’d hunt from the ground this year. Shoulder surgeries recovery from last Dec going ok- still seeing the Dr. Had a few problems but can pull 56#s now. Rehab getting old LOL. Still fighting some stiffness and pain but determined to hunt this year.
Got a couple of spots picked out but they’re about 8 – 20 yards from the deer traffic lanes.
Have a blow-down in a good spot for cover but it’s 30-35 yards from where the deer hang out.
The spot that’s 8 yards away has pretty good cover behind but I feel like I’d be shaking paws with them LOL.
Under 10 yards in a blind too close?

I’ve had them at 5 yards from the blind. As long as you’re careful, those distances should be ok.
I would also recommend a ghillie suit. I hunted out of one last year and it was amazing. I had mature deer at 10 yards and they just stare right through me. I was never busted once. It is one of those “secret” weapons that most aren’t aware of…
