Cane or Oak limbs

Postby QakQak » Mon Dec 31, 2012 8:00 pm

Just curious to everyone's thoughts

Have a pit blind in a bean field. Have always used cane as cover. Field surrounded by pin oak; just thinking should we use oak limbs instead?

Most farmers in my part of the country would prefer you used most anything but cane, as it can be a bear to get rid of it takes.
If you think I'm wrong, you might be right.

I'd either use rice stubble, wheat straw or weathered fast grass mats.

That would be ideal but they're usually ground to chaff., more or less.

Build blind or pit along the edge of the field by them oaks and then brush it with oak branches. Will it work?

I understand (there is a soybean field right behind my house), but usually you can find spots that still have some plants standing, where the combine has missed. Look around the edges......

Cane loses its leaves very quickly resulting in almost no concealment. I'd cut a bunch of broomstraw as it is easy to find and holds up very well.
