Default Shooting from the barn

Just trying to see how others feel. I live on my property. I have a barn that sits in the middle of the areas I usually hunt. I usually hunt from the ground or a ladder stand. I feel a little guilty hunting from the barn. I guess its the same as a ground blind, but?. What about shooting from the porch or when you see a good one in the front yard?
Should I feel guilty? Do y'all find it unethical or immoral?
Just wanting opinions. Would y'all?

Several years ago I had permission to hunt a plot of land that had an old barn on it and I found that the barn was the best stand on the entire 100 acres. I got in it one day when it started raining and I ended up killing a nice buck that evening. I killed several deer using that barn as my blind...my opinion is that it is just a big shooting house...

During cotton picking time I have left the cotton picker in a part of a field that don't offer any good tree stand sights. Deer don't think twice about a parked cotton picker. I'll be laying on top. It's get them everytime

If your objective is to kill a deer I'd say dead is dead no matter where or how it's done so it's legal.

All good with me. Different hunts I want different experiences out of. Up close. 500 yards. Swamp. Oaks. Rut. Bow stalk. First light. Last light. Nooner. Buddy hunt. Kid hunt. Granddaddys rifle. AR. They are all cool in their own way.

The barn OK. I think the porch is more opportunity shooting and not so much hunting, so that's for you to decide.

Don't really have a reason other than growing up hunting was always "in the woods". Just asking opinions. I have sat in it before just never long and never saw anything worth shooting. As someone said "dead is dead" as long as its legal.

I see no problem with it. A hay loft makes a good stand espically if it's raining. Square bales make a good rifle rest. So does a kitchen window sill.

I looked hard in the Reg. book and couldn't find a thing illegal about shooting deer from a barn! Kick back, get comfy and enjoy yourself.

We've got one of those big half-rounded workshops that look similar to the old style airplane hangars sitting in the ideal spot overlooking our property in the mountains. It already had an upstairs loft when we bought it so we installed a nice easy sliding window in it with a couple chairs and it's the best blind I've ever used. Nice and cozy when it's cold or raining out. We don't see anything wrong with a little modern convenience while hunting.

My best stand when I lived in Chattooga county was an old chicken house that stretched from the dirt road clean into a 10 acre alfalfa field that bordered a jungle of planted pines and briars. I could park at one end of the chicken house, walk all the way through (obviously undetected) and climb up into the loft on the other end and overlook the pines and alfalfa.....out of a lazyboy recliner! Had a shooting rest built into the opening in the loft and lit up tons of deer that moseyed out to munch on the field. Stayed warm and dry all the time. Probably the most "Perfect" stand I ever had.

When I was a kid I shot one from my bedroom window. It taught me how good concealment works in your favor.
