9 posts in this topic

Anyone know if there are any blaze orange requirements when using ground blinds in Minnesota? I think its a good idea but I didn't see anything in the regs for reuirements.

How bout Wisconsin?

Thanks.

As far as I know there is nothing about a blind. You, of course, have to be in orange, but after what I did on the "Early Anterless Season" I'd put some kind of orange outside of the blind. I was picking my way through a thick stand of young aspen and pines when I finally noticed I was walking right to a ground blind. It was totally brushed in on the top and bottom and who ever was inside never gave a whistle or a sign that I was "sneaking up" on them. It wasn't sticking out like a sore thumb and I got close enough to see the silhouette of a person through the mesh windows. blush The person must have watched me for a good 40 minutes because I was moving pretty slowly. Well, after feeling pretty dumb, I got to thinking...if a deer happened to walk inbetween the two of us during the time I didn't see the blind...jeeesh!

I know I wouldn't sit inside one during gun season without throwing some orange out there.

I've never seen a law about it but I agree with 89, I will have something orange hanging near mine this weekend. Foolish not too.

Put some orange on your blind no matter what... a little blaze isn't going to spook the deer. Safety first.

I usually put a couple of strips of orange duck tape on each side of the blind. Works good and has never been a problem with the deer.

I see on pg 78 in regs. all it says is blaze orange would be a good idea, for sure put some blaze on it doesnt look like it`s a law but safety first.

    • i think you have to put it over the limb and shimmy to the trunk by looping it through itself with  the help of the pole. but your right scoot I am confused too. I normally attch my to the trunk.
    • If the economy heats up, it gets down to a choice between rampant inflation or high interest rates.  The solution for the inflation of the 1970s  was to jack interest rates up into the teens.     What would interest payments be on $20+ trillion at 8 or 10 percent?  Or 12 or 14 percent?          
    • Which will lead to hyperinflation.   What will that look like? Well, we can try to print money like Del suggests but the evidence is that printing more money can actually make more problems.   http://www.foxnews.com/world/2017/01/18/hyperinflation-renders-venezuela-nation-broke-millionaires.html    
    • Since Bulleit was mentioned so much, I thought I'd check for it tonight when I went to get my standards.  With all the positive reviews I went to scanning the top shelf right away.  I didn't find it till I got a little lower.  I can say I was a little surprised to see it priced at $24.   What is it that everyone likes about it?  I'm curious now.  I wasn't curious enough to add it to the tab though.   By the way, Johnnie Walker Platinum and Blue Label took top honors in the price category at $99 and $209 per bottle respectively.
    • Debt to GDP at the current levels is not much of a problem if you assume interest rates will remain low and static, but there is no reason to believe they will, considering they are presently considerably lower than average historical levels.   You fail to account for any rise in interest rates in your calculations, and that is the primary reason 100 percent debt to GDP is not prudent financial policy.    
    • T   Me too.  They get the papers all soggy and hard to light. 
    • I did.  Political.
