    A friend is going to hunt our Kansas farm. He has only 2 days to hunt. He only uses a compound bow. There are really no good trees for a hanging or ladder stand. Mostly Osage orange and CRP/crops. Lots of deer in the CRP and adjoining ditches. We have 2 feeders up. Should he try to put up a tripod with a cover or a ground blind or go ahead and put it in the best tree he can find and move a feeder or a mineral block?. He will be hunting on Thanksgiving and the day after. Only will shoot a 125 plus buck.

    I would get a strap=on stand and some climbing sticks and put it in a tree, hopefully near a spot where several deer trails cross. They'll fit in just about any tree.

    Second choice would be a ground blind.

    Not sure what his antler requirements have to do with stand selection, but that being said, I'd seriously consider a ground blind going by the topography you described... get it out early, at least 30 days if possible. You can help them get used to it by corning all around it..even if you're against hunting over bait, putting corn around it up until a few days before will help them get used to it fast.
