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.

    • That is some great photography!
    • In late summer end of July and August when the water warms and the oxygen drops in the shallows. I have caught Eye's trolling deep diving raps, plugs behind dispy divers for suspended fish over 50-70 feet of water where the bait balls are. So, yes please don't follow us lost crazy people around out there! 🤪  😁
    • They call it 'No Man's Land' because nobody fishes it, unless they are lost, stupid or their locator is in simulation mode. That works for me because that's my comfort zone. Most people wouldn't believe the numbers of trophy fish I have caught in water that's over 50' deep. Recently I was out on a local lake trolling for walleyes in deep water with shallow and medium diving crankbaits, and I noticed 3 other boats that were avoiding the normal structure. Maybe their locators were broken or in demo mode, but for there to be 4 of us driving slowly around the open water, it seemed like more than a coincidence. I boated 4 eyes in 4 hours, with a smaller average size than I was hoping for. I am not looking for lakes, spots or secrets.... I am just curious if anybody else has noticed these 'fools' fishing water too deep for 'normal' fishing. Or maybe you have tried it a time or two, let me know what made you steer your boat away from the shoreline? Did it work out for you?  Is this style of fishing becoming more popular, or am I just paranoid?
    • Don't know yet if there are more.   
    • nope, they just like my bluebird houses! they got evicted again 2 nites ago!!!!!!!!! i learned a long time ago no millet. i only feed sunflower and safflower seed along with thistle!
    • WinnerDinner, what do you fish for there In Ireland?  
    • Well there's that! 👍  
    • Speaking of lures I remembered something... Recently I have been trying to understand how to fish at night, was never really much of a fan before. Don’t overload yourself with tackle when fishing at night. Use a smaller tackle box and make use of two or three separate, small containers for all the necessary items like hooks, weights, small bait etc. Night-fishing success means not using bright lights and being very quiet. I feel in love with my new glow in the dark fishing lure, it is so underrated, there are quite a lot of these glow in the dark lures at places like Amazon and such. According to veteran fly-fishermen trout that are all but impossible to catch during the day will be more likely to hit at night. Why? Because these fish are nocturnal feeders. They venture out from under the logs and out of the deeper holes to feed in the shallows. Of course, when you’re seeking trout or other shallow feeders at night you’ll have to take extra precautions to stay safe. So far I've been doing good with my night fishing adventures.
    • My "BROWNING STRIKE FORCE SUB MICRO" was a dream. It really stands out for its exceptional daylight clarity and amazing battery life. The images this game camera can capture put most 12MP cameras to shame. It also uses power very efficiently, even with heavy use of video – especially if you install a set of lithium batteries.  You can expect several months’ use out of them which is even more impressive when you consider that it runs on six AAs, instead of the more common eight.
