after reading about pull sleds, ive just recieved my jet sled from cabelas, i can see alot of uses for this thing, but is there any way of turning it into a layout blind after pulling your gear to the hunting site. :salude:

If you don't mind your feet hanging over one end. I never did get use to sitting up really fast and shooting.

I tried it, but it wasn't very comfortable and didn't work too well. I lined the bottom with a foam Ridge-rest and then covered the top with a camo cover-up cloth. We hunted in them only one morning and granted it was in a mowed hay field, but the geese got within ~100 yds, hit the breaks, and went the other way. I think you would have better luck if you were in say cut corn. The sleds are pretty high profile though and are too short to lay down in comfortably so your legs have to go up and over the rails to get out. Unless you fold your legs, not comfy for long, your knees stick up. I guess you could do some modifications to it, but it wasn't worth it to me.
Just my thoughts

Could work better if you can dig it in a little so it sits more level with the ground that way you can have your feet and legs lay flat on the ground. Could work ok in a shallow water set-up.
More ammo! I need to shoot something!
