Purchasing a blind

Postby greasy70 » Tue Jan 07, 2014 5:38 pm

I am getting my gear to start duck hunting and was looking into purchasing a portable blind. I really like Ameristep Brick home one. Seems like a good blind with good viewing. But wanted to know if it would be good to shoot out of, or am I really limiting my field of view with this? Is it best to go with a blind that has a top that opens? It would mostly be just me and my buddy. Please let me know your thoughts. Also if it helps, we will do most our hunting down in Salton Sea.

I don't think you'd be happy with that kind of blind at all. The top would interfere with a good number of your shooting opportunities. If you are hunting an area with tulies or other vegetation you can just suck into them and be still. If there is no cover I'd go with layout blinds. Good luck.

Second that.... :thumbsup:

Don't think that's a "duck" blind. Rule of thumb..... a good blind is no higher than the cover around you.

Did that once at Wister with that type of blind. Never again, I stuck out like a preacher at the bunny ranch.

Thanks. I will most likely build my own with painted pvc and camo netting. Hey Duckmansoon, what did most people seem to have at Wister for blinds?
