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.

    • Sounds like a good seminar!
    • After starting out the winter with a lack of snow February is making up for it. Earlier in the week the southern half of the state received 4 to 6 inches of snow and in the last couple of days the north and northwest received from 4 to 8 inches of snow.Snowmobile trails are now open in most, but not all, counties across the state with conditions rated as good or excellent in many counties on the Wisconsin Department of Tourism's Snow Conditions Report (exit DNR). Many state properties were regrooming cross-country ski trails and ski trail conditions ranged from good to excellent. Some freezing rain fell in the south after the snow, resulting in some icy conditions in some locations. Temperatures are expected to warm this weekend, especially in the south where more rain is also in the forecast, while the north is expected to get more snow.With all the recent snow, conditions should be excellent for the American Birkebeiner Ski Race this weekend in the Hayward-Cable area. It is the largest ski race in North America and attracts thousands of skiers from all over the country and world -- skiers from 49 states and 36 countries participated in 2018 -- and draws tens of thousands of spectators to the area. .
    • I doubt it but you can call the DNR and ask. You can pull up the regs on a smart phone anyway.
    • ......The 6 packages from the first round are long-gone, so I am brining up another batch. Ended up buying an entire case of butts (@ $1.18 per #) from Sams. I am going to do 3 butts - one with High Mtn buckboard seasoning and two with another dry brine consisting of Tenderquick, brown sugar, garlic salt, and black pepper. I always like getting to the raw ingredients of spices versus relying on someones "magic rub". If it goes badly I will revert back to the HM cure. As an added note, I also picked up a $20 loin that I put HM cure on to experiment with some Canadian bacon.... Will check back in 10 days or so!  
    • if thats the case i hope there printing water proof versions!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i cant keep mine nice and tidy in the cab of my truck!!!!!!!
    • Have not heard this. Why just a boat? It needs to be in some peoples buckets to so when their 500 fish over their limit they can't say I no know, I no know? 🤷‍♂️
    • Got mine yesterday during the snow.  I was informed that there is a new rule requiring the MN Fishing Regulations be carried on your boat and that this new rule is not documented in the Regs.  Anyone know if this is fact or just a kindly recommendation?
