"People have said to me, if stalking works so well let's see you go kill a deer in the woods right there. That's really, really stupid," says Fred Asbell, author of the book Stalking & Still-Hunting: The Ground Hunter's Bible (available from www.cabelas.com). "Granted, some places can be difficult, almost impossible to move through quietly, but there are also places where putting up a tree stand is pointless." Tree stands, ground blinds, drives, stalking and still-hunting all have a place in the hunter's bag of skills. Making it on the ground means taking the hunt to the hunted. It starts with the belief that regardless of geography, when conditions are right there's no better place to hunt than on the ground.
