Default Mr Heater Buddy in ground blind?

I'm kind of favoring ground blinds these days and wondering if one of these heaters will be a problem in one? Not really concerned about the safety issue but how about the smell or vapor running off the deer?

Never have had that problem. Shot deer close as 8 yards with them running wide open on high.

Well, #1, I play the wind, even in a ground blind. Any vapors should be going away from your shooting lane. The noise isn't really all that loud outside of even a popup (except when you use push the ignition and it makes a loud click.)

No issues at all. I have had deer within 10 yds w/ Mr. Buddy rolling. The really awesome thing about one in a ground blind is that a light jacket suffices.

I believe it's catalytic & shouldn't be a problem

No problem here. Even had coyotes come in at 40 yards straight down wind with it going full blast

Use it, don't worry except for ringing noise when you turn it off on very cold days.
