Keeping cover from blowing away

Postby WF1 » Fri Oct 25, 2013 2:26 pm

I have a pond in the middle of a bean field that was just harvested. There are no weeds or cover of any kind. We're taking the tractor out this weekend to dig out some spots to put the layout blinds in the ground so they don't stick out.

I was planning on taking some hay bales, cutting them open and leaving the hay in the dugout holes so there is always something there to brush our blinds with.

Is there a way to keep the hay from blowing away (chicken wire?) so it's there for most of the season? Don't want to put sheets of plywood if I don't have to.

Wrap it up in a tarp and place a 3-4 cinder blocks on the edge to keep it shut.
