Use the good old cattail, tumbleweed and willows trick..things that make them relaxed and feel like their roost surroundings

you can usually buy a bale of wheat straw at a local feed store and it works pretty well!

No, most of the straw you see used as beeding for livestock is OAT straw. Not wheat straw!!

Here's something I'm trying this year:

Twin size fitted sheet in green (sprayed with a little brown paint), cut to fit layout blind doors. Hit it with spray adhesive and stick grass clippings from mowing the yard to it (mix in longer grass as needed). Spray the grass with cheap green paint (that matches wheat) before you glue it to keep it green instead of turning brown.

I'm sure I'll have to re-glue grass during season, but I don't hunt cut wheat too much so hopefully it will be an easy way to blend in for those few hunts. Then again it may be more of a pain than anything. I guess we'll see.

I think the best thing you can do is to age your blind. You can mud it or whatever, but I'm lazy. When I got it, I just left it outside in my dirt driveway for a month or so during early fall, when we get some rainy days and some sunny. Knocked the sheen right off and looks pretty good without even stubbling it.

Another thing I've heard of is head down to Michael's or a local craft store and buy some raffia, I hear it holds up good.

Also, look around the edges of the field. Usually there is a lot of longer stubble at the edges.

Get a bag like this (or other designs)

Filling this up usually will stubble two to three blinds and it lets you carry the good stuff from the edges to where the blinds are
