Hayhouse blind?

Postby luie b » Fri Jan 10, 2014 10:14 pm

Anybody ever use one of these for hunting fields for geese and ducks? Does it work as intended or are they spooky of it? Would it work if there are no other bales in the field? Is the quality of the blind decent where it could be used for a few years? Thanks guys. I'm really looking to start using something other than my layout because it's so akward to shoot out of and it really lacks in comfort.

This pic was in a pea field on the opener a few years back. It worked well but it took us probably 45 minutes or more just to thatch it. I have switched to a coffin blind now, much easier and quicker to thatch and pack up, but I do miss the comfort of the hayhouse.

I have used them in wheat stubble as well

May I ask what state you're in? I figure it matters because I'm in Illinois so the geese are more educated by then and wary of odd things.
