Permanent blinds are not allowed so I will have to pack one in and out each day if I bring a blind in, which isn't a problem.
Is the best way to hunt these ponds by setting a blind on the bank of the water or should I be doing something else? If a blind on the bank is the best choice are there any companies who make portable duck blinds?
This is very simple.
-Take a couple pieces of treated 2"x2"x4' (1 8ft piece gets you 2)
-45* the ends
-Zip tie or staple/nail a grass mat on either side (typically 4' widths)
-Dig into the ground at a backward angle
-tuck in behind it
-Get real creative and make 2 sets, angle them back towards each other. One in front of you, one in back. Tuck down and wait
-Bungee them together and tie a rope to put over your shoulder.
If you have the grass mats, the 2x2 are around $3-$5 each.
