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!

    •   Then I wonder if they'll go back to the old way.
    •   Melt.   They should invite Obama and do a real roast of Donny boy.  
    • 6 million dollars per mile.    Oh My. Did Mexico cut the check for the down payment yet?  Has Merkel cut a check to Nato yet?    
    •   Plus+ 1 the carb. It's filling up the crank case with gas. After you clean or rebuild the carb tip it on the side with the plug out to drain the crank before trying to start it. Or if it's going to be a while take the plug out now and may be the gas will evap a bit by the time you get at the repair. good luck and let us know how it went. That was my first ATC.  
    • Ovi sure makes it look easy out there. What a beast.
    • And we know you like it raw.  No vaseline.   Pink steak, sure.  But raw burger just isn't my jam.   
    • AHH..... Memories.... I would have loved to have a odometer on our  Tri-Moto 125, had to have put thousands of miles on that 3 wheeler, burnt it down a few times when we were kids but Dad said you'll have to learn to fix it yourself! I'm not bringing it back to the dealer every time there's something wrong! We got good at new pistons and rings and gasket sets..... eventually we brought it to the dealer in pieces after we couldn't fix it anymore, think it was a rod bearing that eventually was it's demise, ended up getting a rippin' Tri-Moto 175 after that, those wheelers were our main transportation since we didn't have drivers licenses yet....... good times for sure.   You're carb is having issues, I would go there first, somethings not stopping the fuel from getting into your carb, either the float has a hole in it and isn't floating, or it could be sticking somewhere or your needle and seat are shot.   Give the carb a good once over and you should have your problem fixed.   Those were pretty basic 2 cycle engines, I don't think they even had reed valves.   Mike    
    • I planned on getting seeds and starting them at home, I won't be up there until late April. I have planted squash up there and they did not grow, I will look at blue hubbard, I have not had/grown them before, they sound interesting.
