duck blind advice!!!!!!!

5 posts in this topic

I have a homemade duck blind on my boat that is exactly like the one they sell at cabellas. I am looking for ideas on installing the grass so it can withstand freeway speeds. at this point, i just take it on and off at the landing, but that isnt very fun at 5am. any ideas would be appreciated......

I use avery fastgrass mats and the ones I had on lasted for 3 years and now need to replace because they are like ripping apart because they got so wet. I had chicken wire fencing on my blind frame and then put the fastgrass mats on the fencing and tied them with slip knots tie ons (not sure what the excat name it is) and works well. some pics

this is what I did after 5 yrs of fast grass and somewhere there is a 18ft jon boat in there. I used to use a boat cover but this summer it got ripped to shreads and gona try without one I also used a green snow fence I got from menards and its called E-Z fence and did the same thing Quack did with the zip ties and it seems work good.

that is a great idea, I will be looking into doing the same thing by adding different grass on it. Looks good!

    • Money to be made, and the cold war (you remember the cold war, right?) was the reason we did various things.    Go read about Stalin and his successors to see why we were worried about the Soviet Union.   What we did might or might not have turned out like we hoped but that doesn't change what the situation was.   
    • Dave, your economist wants immigrants to meet requirements like posting a bond or having assets.  Why should they do that when they can just come in with nothing through the porous borders?   Isn't the argument about open borders vrs controlled immigration?   Would the 11 million undocumented have to go back home and post a bond?     If the US through its political process decides to allow immigrants, that's cool.    But that is not what we have now.   Better pick that mike back up.  
    • I'm still trying to figure out why we pushed the coup in Ukraine, other than to cause trouble of course.
    •   Ditto, almost exactly the same. I wouldn't spend a ton of money on decoys if your just starting.
    •   To tell you the truth. I have never cleaned a cottontail ever that didn't have flees all over them in the winter. So I just stop hunting them and went for Snowshoes which are bigger and never found flees on them, oddly?
    •   Seems the hares are down from when I was younger but the cottontails seem plentiful enough. I popped these with a 20 gauge shotgun while grousing
    • I use to go for Snowshoes a lot in the winter with a scoped 22. It was fun sneaking through the pines looking for them. See the little black eye and "bing".  Seems like they just fell off the face of the earth for many years so I just gave up trying for them. I'm sure with the big "Down with Fur" thing and not many taking out as many Fox and Yotes by trapping it really took a hit on the bunnies!  I wrote the DNR back a few years ago and asked them about it and he said: we really don't manage the Rabbits at all. And he gave me the old "Grouse BS". Their just at the bottom of their 10 year cycle!   Seems to always be their answer!
