final approach blinds

Postby claimer » Sun Aug 13, 2006 10:48 am

for one week a year i field hunt; by the third day i am in agony from the discomfort; other than designinging your own blind, i am certain an accessory has been created by experienced field hunters to make these blinds more comfortable; any suggestions other than limiting out in an hour. thanks.jp.

Hmmmm that is strange. I often will hunt 5 days straight for 3-5 hrs in the morning and do not have any problems, and I have a bad back and get leg that gets cramps easily from lack of circulation.

So what exactly is your discomfort?

Maybe a little more padding in the arse area is needed???

I've never felt much discomfort in mine either.

However, when it gets very cold, I use a sleeping mat under me. I had it from my old backpacking days, and helps keep me a bit warmer...and it is a bit more comfortable as well. They are pretty cheap, especially one like mine that rolls up. The folding mats would be what I would buy now, though. Easier to pack in and stow away.

Try adjusting the back rest. You should be able to change the length of the straps that support the back rest toward the floor of the blind. This should give you a different feel in the shoulder and neck area. If I slap on the neo-tub and sit partially in the water I can fall asleep in mine.
