Ground Blind

9 posts in this topic

My wife is afraid of heights and want to go out for rifle season. We will be hunting private land surrounded by private land on all sides. My first question is it better to put this on the edge of an open area like a food plot or to try to conceal it in the woods on the highest groud possible. I also plan on putting a little orange on all 4 sides just in case some idiots wonder on to our land.

Second question is what is the best blind for 2 people to sit in? Cost is not really a concern

Its kind of late now to put up a blind. Most deer moving by it will pick out that something is different. That said I would put it somewhere you can blend it in with natural cover. Don't put it someplace where you will have no shot. I would try to get away from the food plot, but in a area they have to move through to get to it. GOOD LUCK

I would try to identify a high area to set up the blind. Deer don't naturally look up to identify potential predators. If there is anyway to overlook a high traffic area, you should get some shooting in. I often will sit on hillsides with no blind or cover and see plenty of deer.

I'll agree with the Double Bull. I have had two people in the blind and also filmed deer at the same time. It's not to late to put a blind up at all. If you put it up opening morning, cut some brush and branches and place them on the sides and top to break up the outline of the blind. It works for archery hunting so I see no reason why it won't work for a gun season. The idea of 4 orange tags on each side is also a great idea since you are hunting on the ground even on private property.

Goos luck.

I would go with a double bull also and I plan on putting 2 ground blinds out day before opener and possibly 1 on opening day, just blend it in well with the surrounding brush and you should be fine..you can also use scent killer to spray on it if you are worried about the smell

    • Actually the guy at ace was pretty close. These little guys are for framing steel studs before sheetrocking,  but yes they also could be for sheet metal work even though they are black . But your right hawg sharp and go in fast. 
    • What  a sweet find !!   Even better that you had a camera handy !!
    • Great trade and as of last year I know I wasn't ready to part with Lavine and his potential but that all changed when he went down with the injury.  I hope Lavine becomes a stud for Chicago in a few years but our time to win is now with this addition!!  Great move giving up hope for a top 15 player in the league that plays D is brilliant with the young studs we still have on roster.  Now all we need to do is add another player or 2 in free agency to strengthen our bench and we will be looking good.  Excited for the free agency to start!!! Playoffs here we come!!!!!! GO WOLVES!!!!!!!!!!!
    • http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/06/22/mall-of-america-slips/   Classic case of doctors juicing up a medical claim with a series of failed therapies, creating a life long patient and a corporation with deep pockets to bill for those services.  Think not?  Dont be so naive.  Nobody wanted to fix her, they just wanted to keep billing, sad deal that happens all too often.          
    • That Drouin contract at 5.5 is kind of bad for us right now. Nino is far more proven than him and Granlund has had the beast season out of the 3 of them. Hard to see anything under 5 for each of them. 
    • Looks like the Wild moved Schroeder for....another Schroeder.  Maybe the new guy will be more consistent.   I see Evander Kane is on the trade market.  On the expensive side, but if the Wild decide to move Scandella instead of Dumba, that would free up more money.  A guy capable of scoring 30+ goals with some size would be sweet.     I am thinking Granlund and Nino each sign for in between 4-5$ mil each.  Hopefully less and hopefully Pominville will restructure a little.  Doesn't leave a ton of cap space for free agents or other guys.     Lots of moving parts in Chicago.  They seem to be moving a lot of parts around to try to work with their cap situation.  
    • I think you, or the person at Ace, meant "Sheet metal". That's what they're used for....sheet metal and HVAC work. They have a self-tapping thread. Look on your furnace where the sheet-metal ducting is fastened...bingo!   Also called "sheet metal screws".  Hope they work for ya!  
    • Reminds me of a memorable morning at our place when  THREE male's landed on a front picture window ledge and just sat there for a few minutes looking in.  What a glorious sight!  They were likely just moving through because we do not see them during a normal summer. In fact this summer we have noticed a decline in many species; no bluebirds at all, only a couple doves, fewer swallows, not as many wrens (but still plenty of them) and for the first time a pair of cowbirds. Normal mornings are like a symphony around here just about daybreak.
    • forgot I made this post, I fished a lake here in SD last weekend that has a sunken road way and bridge completely submerged. Its gotten to the point the concrete has fallen apart under water but you can still see most of the structure in tact but also some rebar etc.   I wanted to get a screen capture but as usual that exact spot was popular and already occupied with other boats playing bumper boats to anchor and fish near and I didn't want to intrude on their fishing space just for a picture.
