Camoflauge ground stands for deer?

Recommended Posts

I have noticed more and more people use Camo tree/ground blinds during the rifle season. Is this legal? Seems to me it shouldn't be. I had a guy 50 yards from me in one on the ground, I didnt notice him for three hours, till I heard some noise. Seems odd to me to wear orange if your in a camo hut, but maybe it is legal??

It's legal, but I agree it doesnt make sense becasue of the blaze orange requirements... I think it would be hard to outlaw though, becasue I'm sure hay bail blinds, and blinds that are made of natural stuff like evergreen would be considered camo also.

I never gave it much thought, but I suppose it would be a good idea to hang an orange hat above it in a branch or something. I feel much safer 16' up in a tree.

I see no difference between ground blinds and the guys that have permanent stands with walls on them, you can't see the orange in either case. I say it's a risk you take on yourself if you want to hide behind the camo. It does allow the freedom of being able to move a little bit without the deer seeing you which is nice.

say_der,

Do you know the URL for Ameristep? I have always wanted a blind but because of all the trigger happy's out there, I did not want to sit in a camo blind on the ground. I tought about putting orange tapes/strips all over the area but then this might only confuse the trigger happy's.

I don't want to post an unauthorized link - it's the obvious URL - just add the .com

They don't sell direct from their site. They have links to all of their dealers.

I got a good deal on the Tangle Camo Outhouse about a month ago at the new super store in Lakeville. I'm going to order a blaze cap for it before muzzleloader season opens.

    • Whatever it is, it looks to be over 50 and I’d like to see more. 😉😁
    • Day 1. We got back into my favorite spot around 615am...waited on the trail until sun up, plenty of bear sign around we didn’t want to push it. Legal shooting was about 715. Not very many hunters out here this year. One local told us it’s due to the bears...anyways we sat til about 10 then starting moving ridge to ridge. Didn’t see anything. I may have taken a small nap after lunch for a few mins according to my son. Around 1pm we moved to cliff edge where we could see out around 300 yards and sat until dark. About 430pm mulie does moved past us...probably 20 of them. Then all was quiet until 530 when I thought I heard a cow. My son then says ELK!! 3 cows were 40 yards from us but with the timber he couldn’t get a shot off. They then bolted back to where they came from which was a big clearing. Cole looked at me and said can I go look...I said ya... you crest the top and I will call and see if we can get them to stop. He disappeared from sight and i let off a small cow call and the woods erupted with cows making all kinds of noise and half hearted bugle.  I was waiting with anticipation for what comes next. I hear his rifle bark and then a flash of orange on the cliff above me....huge grin and I nailed hear. He waited for about 5 mins never saw the bull come out, there was 30 cows in the field and he got a dandy. Elk down on day 1 of his first elk trip. We gave each other a huge hug and some high fives! Then the work began. Finally made it back to camp around 10pm. We are worn out and ready to get back out in the morning to find that bull! Stay tuned it’s been everything we could ask for and it’s just beginning! 
    • its interesting thats for sure. puma for sure me still thinks. Leaves are about foot and a half would put the head at about 3 feet or so. Me double thinks cougarumamountainlioncatamountpuma ! 
    • Can-ya-mount a panther in Minnesota? 😉
    • be careful Eyeguy!! I would like to ice fish with you a few time this winter.
    • Well, that was pretty pathetic! Regardless of Annexstad’s health status, Morgan has to be the starter next week! Offense looked so much better with him under center. That’s about the only positive thing I have to say.
    • Big Dave I'm thinking it's a mountain lion or maybe a catamount. 
    • Sorry guys didn't realize posting a video would cause such a controversy! 😆. Anyways, yes, isolated cover has been what has seemed to work great for me, especially on pressured lakes. As far as catching bass goes, it's what I target 90% of the time in summer simply because I love the fight! Spring and winter I mostly target walleye then.
    • Wow did Butler look good lastnight! Saw a lot of things (particularly in the 4th quarter) that show this team is NOT very good without Butler. Apparently the fans have no ill will towards him, as they MVP chant was getting pretty loud.
    • Well, my disappointment in the team has kept me quiet for the last couple weeks. Watching game day right now. Everyone, including Drew Bledsoe picked Nebraska to beat the gophers today. Nebraska is clearly better than their record, but come on! They CANNOT lose to an 0-6 team today!
