What is the advantage of ground blinds for hunters?
Advantages. Can be set up ahead of time along trails or set up quickly at advantageous spots during a hunt. Provide effective camouflage or may conceal the hunter totally, allowing more time to prepare for the shot. Provide an element of surprise that is lacking when hunting from a tree stand.

Do I need a spotting scope for elk hunting?
It all depends on the type of area you are hunting. If it is glassing friendly, then the spotting scope will be worth its weight in gold. If it is a ton of dark timber and you’ll be still hunting, then there is no reason to lug the spotting scope and tripod around. Good luck on your elk hunt!
