Old pallets = New duck blind

Recommended Posts

Made this over the last couple of weekends. I think it turned out pretty good for mostly scrap wood. Saw a bunch of woodies and a few mallards while setting this up. Geese seem to be grouping up in flight, big flocks today! Looking forward to opener!

Albany, MN

Very cool! Wish I had someplace to make a blind like that around here. Let us know how it works out for you.

Looks great.

We used some free pallets (with also free plywood over them) to make a "dock" through cattails to pothole. It won't last long, but price was right and now easy and dry walking wink for hunting before work.

Just so others are aware, this is illegal to do in MN on public land....for a couple reasons.

Nice blind.

Not on private land though, where we did this. Would never do this on public, or create any sort of blind.

It won't last long,

Thats the sucky part. We built a couple similar blinds on my buddies pond one year, they lasted about 3-5 years, the best pallets to use for the walkway are the ones with the smallest spacing between the boards and the thicker the wood the better. They last longer and dont snap when you step on them carrying a couple dozen dekes, your gun(s), coffee, etc.... Pretty comfy hunting for those 3-5 years though.

    • Oh, you haven’t seen me upset.  After I miss 5 straight - then I get upset! 😁
    • dog is good too, did not know it then, but when I was over seas and had some and found out later.. it was the last tome ...  would not say try it cause they are my friends....
    • I'm sure it's tasty, but I have never tried dog either. Calm down people, I am just kidding around.   We used to keep landscaping supplies out on a farm in Rosemount back in the day, and blast away at them when they emerged from the barn. Sticking with the Clint theme.............. Farm cats gotta eat, same as worms.   Being a member of the dove family, I am sure the meat is simular.  
    • Remember, he liked the neighbors food after he tried it. 😋
    • I fished most of the lake in scout mode today.  Found walleyes early on midlake humps and bars in 18-24 fow.  Got a couple to go on jigging raps but then they shut off.  Spent the rest of the day trying to pin down a panfish pattern.  Found good numbers of sunfish in shallow cabbage beds(6-9 fow).  None were huge but good numbers of 8-8 1/2" gills.  A few crappies are mixed in with them and some are suspending off the break.  There are also good numbers of sunfish in or just outside the reeds.   Most of the sunfish ran smaller though although there were some keepers there too.  Pike and bass I did not target but saw others do so successfully.   Plenty of bass in the reeds and spinnerbaits seemed to be what most were using.   Troll over the weeds and you will be rewarded with pike.
    • I got primary on the Crow-Hassen with a rank of #21. New experience for me as well, with MBRB, been a member for a few years just could never get a hunt.   DanBo - That was one I had on my list as I have a buddy that lives just a few blocks up from there.
    • try them before you knock them....
    • we've only  used the adapter so far at the campsites, as I've only seen the standard plug in's at the boxes; and only running some lights and AC at the most at one time, no fridge to run
    • That is crazy nice Hoey.  😎   But for $3,400 I'll just keep my dirt flakes on the floor and may be pick up another used sled or wheeler! 😋
