Anywhere around 40-42″ and you should be good. You can skrunch down to make a shot in your chair but it ain’t easy to hover over it and shoot if the window is too high.
Do box blinds scare deer?
Erecting huge box blinds alerts deer to your presence, unless its been there so long they equate it being part of their natural habitat.
How high should a deer stand be?
Often times 20 feet is the benchmark. This will get you up high enough to be out of direct line of sight for any deer in the area and is not so high that a hunter feels uncomfortable climbing to and getting into the stand safely. If you’re using a climber, you are limited based on the shape of the tree.

How do you make a natural hunting blind?
I’ve bow and gun hunted from brush piles and downed logs quite a bit. It’s a perfect option for public lands where you can’t cut trees, limbs, or other vegetation to build a blind. Instead, round up as many dead trees and limbs as possible, craft a brush pile, and voila—a free ground blind.
Why do hunters wear camouflage if deer are color blind?
A Deer’s Vision, a Hunter’s Clothing and Low Light
Big blobs of color are probably easier to see by a deer, than a camo pattern. You don’t want big “blobs” of any color. Thus, camo patterns help that problem. Camo patterns of greens, browns, grays, etc. will break up that “blob.”
What color can DEER not see?
“Deer are essentially red–green color blind like some humans. Their color vision is limited to the short [blue] and middle [green] wavelength colors. As a result, deer likely can distinguish blue from red, but not green from red, or orange from red.”
