Crossbow hunting from hard- or soft-side blinds can be outstanding because you're at ground level and can have more benefits than being exposed in a stand. DDH managing editor Alan Clemons shot this Ohio buck with a NAP Spitfire broadhead and Wicked Ridge crossbow from a Banks Blind elevated stand.
