Layout Blind

Just finished my first waterfowl season, and I am hooked. Looking for some advice on the purchase of a layout blind. Any recommendations?

I have the FA SUB blind and it works good. There are lots out there and it does not hurt to meet up with guys and lay in theirs in their yard!

I only buy field brown in mine and spray paint them and then mud. That way when the mud washes off they still are very dull and slightly camo in brown and beige.

lay out blind

It may depend on what you're doing. I have an Interceptor: sits high, heavy, can be awkward. PLENTY of room and cuts the wind. Also have a Blanket Blind: sits low, light, portable. Doesn't totally cover you, doesn't really cut the wind. Both needed brushing out with grass to break up the outline. I used the Blanket exclusively this season.

Thanks guys. I would be using it in fields, ponds and embankments. I used a buddy's this season. It did the trick, but I will need my own next season. I will take your advice, check out some of my buddy's layouts, and decide when they go on sale, or I can find one used.

Thanks,

Where are you? People can suggest for you to try theirs unless they know if our close to them.
