Might want to mud or spray paint mist that thing too. It shines like crazy.

I am thinking about buying some clay colored paint because I hunt on the lake and yall know that mud is all thats around there. I might do a clay colored base paint so it matches up better

All you need to do is mist it with a good flat spray paint...just enought to knock the shine off the blind and still allow the camo pattern to show through. Krylon Ultra-Flat Fusion is the perfect thing for layouts as it's designed to adhere to the synthetic fabric and once you mist it, you shouldn't need to do it ever again. Don't over think it because once you have it all stubbled up, you won't see much if any of the actuall blind under all that stubble anyways.

Good start! I'd do that same process about 3 more times over the blind until that thing is completely covered :beer:

Here is a picture of my ground force and dog blind in ND last week. It was deadly on the ducks again this year.

Three layouts on the bank. Ducks coming straight at them in bright sun and never saw them till we sat up. Decoys tucked in close due to the wind right in front of the blinds.

OK, got some pics in the shop... with and without flash. Works awesome in alot of places, just can't match the sprouting grass green color after the fields have been burnt... but the wetlands I hunt, fits in good... especially after you add some veg!

I go all natural... just misted my blind with "marsh grass" spray paint and then what ever I find where I hunt, this pic is of yesterday's hunt where I took 3 youth kids so my blind is behind them. my little bro limited out. my blind in the back is a Cabela's interceptor elite, little bro has a Roger's LP (in the middle), and the other 2 kids are under grass mats covered in corn and bean stuble.

Couple different situations for me...

This field was a hike to get into... 4 dozen dekes, shotguns, and accessories in one trip (no layouts).

An earlier season shoot in a super dry cornfield and layouts..

Winter Wheat...

2 of them in a snow dusted corn field...

And in my opinion, the hardest fields to hide a layout... cut beans. This one took awhile.

Here are a couple from August. One in a swathed barley field where we really fooled them. The other is from hunting next to a pothole in a pasture. The blind is covered with green grass.

here is a set up i hunted out of this weekend. there is a rogers XL goosebuster and a GHG groundforce. I dont use any type of pre made rafia grass or anything. I have figured out that the best possible way to blend in is to use the surrounding vegitation. then when the hunt is over I just leave it on for the next hunt. that way it dosent take as long to camo the blind up.

I really liked all the blinds so far, so keep them coming. My FA Eliminator Express with rafia, small bags cost me $1.50
