    Default Umbrella blind with windows.

    I have a couple of the large turkey blinds that I use for retired guns. I like them because the bird boy can watch the action through the windows, which keeps the help happy.

    Unfortunately, the camo pattern is mostly brown and the fields I am using are mostly green.

    I've been trying to find one of these umbrella blinds in a green camo pattern without success.

    Anyone know where I can find one for sale?

    Thanks in advance,

    Jeff

    Don't bother buying a new one. Just cut some fresh growing brush and attach it.

    Too much trouble for my help (spouse). I need a green one that won't stick out like a sore thumb when I set it up in a green field of fescue. I found a vendor who claimed to have it in green, but he send me a dark, mostly brown pattern I already have.

    Someone in another thread mentioned that he spray paints golf umbrellas. Maybe you could spray paint it green.

    Hi Jeff,

    This isn't a cheap option, but found this and it would suit your needs:

    He's got a little Mississippi Leg-Hound in him. Once he starts though, it's best to just let him finish.

    Thanks Anthony

    Unfortunately, this is the vendor who told me on the phone he only had one color (green) in stock, but sent me two brown ones exactly like the other ones I already own. The bill was $199 for two of them. I'm shipping them back tomorrow.

    I think I'm going to try green paint on one of my brown ones.

    See you tomorrow am at JTs

    I've also ordered some of the Avery grass mats and will paint a couple of them green when I paint one of the umbrellas.

    How is that drawing program coming along?
    Would have been great to have it on Ken's thread http://www.retrievertraining.net/for...ic.php?t=19899

    Thanks again!

    Try Cabelas for the Double Bull brand of turkey blind. Its a tent type, easy to set up and take down but not cheap
