Stalking 10% ,depending on weather, ground conditions.
Hunting the ground is very rewarding method, and you can learn more about deer than just sitting and waiting from a stand or blind.

But my favorite way to hunt any game is by still/stalk hunting..
I've taken more deer off the ground with a gun but with a bow, I've had more success in a tree. I've used a ground blind but not a big fan of them, when I'm with the kids it just easier but I hate not having the scenery that a treestand offers.

Groundblind is awesome for winter, especially if you use a heater inside! Hunt like a KING! lol
Ground hunting without a blind can be some of THE most difficult hunting you can do. I've been busted by more big bucks like this than I care to count. It's tough at eye level, super close! But nothing brings that sense of oneness with the woods and animals than this type of hunting, imo.
Stalking is some of the most exciting hunting. It's pro-active, you're making moves, trying to get in range of an animal without spooking them. Crazy stuff. Some of my most heart-pounding hunts have been stalking.
I utilize all of them! They all have a place and can all be fun!
“I have always tempered my killing with respect for the game pursued. I see the animal not only as a target, but as a living creature with more freedom than I will ever have. I take that life if I can, with regret as well as joy, and with the sure knowledge that nature’s way of fang and claw and starvation are a far crueler fate than I bestow.” – Fred Bear

There is nothing more exhilarating to me than getting your heart pounding by having to hide your eyes to prevent a deer from spooking, just to move in position and snap your bow back the second they get complacent and look away or pop their head behind a tree or some brush and then finally letting your arrow fly and hit the bread basket.
I haven't shot too many deer in my day, but I've actually shot more on the ground than out of a stand. In fact the buck in my avatar was actually shot via the ground, no ground blind, no scent, no bait. All I did was hunt a very good rubline and I got lucky. He came in on me so fast from behind me that I couldn't even get a good look at his rack due to hiding the whites of my eyes before shooting that I had NO IDEA the size of him until my brother walked up on him and found him the next morning with me.
Attached is a better pic of him... Hope it works!
