    Default Mobile hunters: How do you hide?

    A permanent blind is nice, but us that hunt several places, what do you use to hide?
    I bought this off ebay over the summer, and found it works great.
    Fabric is a bit flimsy, but its working.

    In a hay field during early goose.

    Added some bulap, around the existing fabric for a camo change.

    And now it blends like this.

    Added a piece across the top with a hole for me andhad already had a hole for Trap to get in and out.

    Where do I find a few more of these, and what do you guys on the move use?

    The answer is thousands of years old. You and your dog stay motionless and surround yourselves with the natural cover. Good hunting.

    This, though there are situations where I have to actually construct a blind out of whatever is nearby. I'll admit that I have used my camo holding blind when the local cover wasn't adequate.

    I got one of these



    to use as a ground blind for a couple places that lack cover. It is very light weight and compact so easy to carry on long hikes.

    I haven't used it yet so I can't report on how well it stays in place but its an idea.

    (Trap is liking them birds a little too much, no?)

    I got it from Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Hunters-Specia...sim_sbs_misc_5

    I do almost all of my waterfowl hunting away from the boat. Over the years here are a few "tricks" that have proven effective. The basic concept is "You only need to fool them once."

    "halo" raffia blind (worn on your head)


    in a low slung turkey chair wearing a three piece “ghillie” suit


    a plastic coffin blind/sled called a Predator


    packed in layout blind & dog hide


    "Can you see us?" (reverse shot of previous setup)


    the most common is just "tucked in the available cover"
