any ideas

well since duck season went out in january, me and a buddy have been buildin a blind in this honey hole we found in a swamp. you don't really need a blind in this swamp, but i figured it'd be a great project. the most recent pics are from last weekend but they go back to february.
i've spent all week goin through the pics and puttin some on the computer, so let me know what you think. thanks

Looks real nice, :thumbsup: I would suggest a shelf on the front wall, if possible it should be high enough that when the guns rest against the wall it is over the barrel opening to prevent debris from accidentally clogging the gun. Also put a U hook in the front wall to keep the gun barrel in place and a kick board on the floor to hold the stock.

duc blind

Looks great. I would add some Flambeau grass mats around it, or if you don't want to spend much more money, just use some fence staples to add some brush to it. For my blinds, I just take some net wire used for fences, and just weave sticks and grass into it.

yeah those are great ideas, as far as camo, we are gunna paint with some stencils and then staple some tree bark and brush to it. the bench is something i would like to do once we get the outside done. the roof is taking a while though, so when its done everything else with be easy

Are the ducks usually only in the front. I know in places we hunt if they get to much pressure theyll fly do the back of the blind where you cant get a shot.
The group ended up with 420 birds.

(")_(")one is mine. Cut and paste the bunny into your signature to help the bunny gain world domination !

yeah, there are woodies everywhere at first light so i would hunt the blind but after the sun comes up and we hunt it a couple times, i'll probably not hunt the blind, but just use it for shelter and gear ect.
