Post Your Blind

Postby teamoutlaw » Tue Dec 06, 2011 1:38 pm

I just purchased a beavertail off of vci classifieds, and sold the avery quick set frame (net was rotted out and so was windblocker). I am looking for some ways to better conceal the the beavertail. I love the blind already, plan on purchasing a dog door and having it sewn in place with the dog ramp. The blind has some pouches on it to place some brush on it but I am wanting to place some blind grass on the boat to break up the figure and leave it on permanently. thought about sewing some nylon strips on it but havent sold myself on the idea yet.

post some pics of your blind set ups I think it would be neat to see them, permanent blinds, layouts, boats, etc. lets see what everyones got going on. I will be back in a couple hours and will post what I have later today

This is the pop up blind we are using this year. We also have an Avery boat blind. For the brush we went along a creek bottom cut the brush and zip tied it together, its worked great so far.

I hadn't yet finished setting up the bow portion, but this is more or less the blind on my boat. My buddy is sitting in there looking out. It was my first outing with it grassed up. I ended up trimming a lot of the lower length of grass so it doesn't hang in the water so much. Once we get in, some of the grass folds down over the top to cover our faces looking out.

My blind is a Gooseview Duck Island and no longer made. But it is a great design that can be setup in a dugout (like below) or a pop out blind like the Avery Quickset. you can adjust the height of each side independently and drop it all to the rails by releasing two straps with just the press of a button. It would be easy to duplicate as it is only bimini hardware and aluminum tubing.

Outlaw,

Is that what Ballard WMA blinds look like? I thought they provided some blind, but it looks like you guys built that on the spot.

How do those big lake floaters work? Are those people who drew a blind permit or do they just temporarily anchor it out there for the whole season without needing a permit?

When we built our floater on and island on KY lake. It was on toons and we anchored of all four corners to where the water could come up to summer pool before it would break off. It was normally about 3 foot deep but we hunted it at times when the water was alot deeper. At the end of the season we dragged the blind in and left the anchors.

Here is my new rig that I found a beavertail 2200 series blind locall for sale. Got a great deal on it, excellent condition. I just don't like the flat material, so I ordered (2) 10x20' camo military nets with the backing from Mack's. Also, I built a conduit frame raintop that pivots back, installed/drilled (2) sets of holes to pin the blind in the hunting and storage position.

Here is just a few that the new blind fooled opening weekend!
