Blind grass

Postby Anthosunie » Tue Oct 01, 2013 12:13 pm

Hi guys,had a few questions if anyone can help. What brand of grass mats are good for a boat blind? Going to be hunting mostly in cattails. Where is a good place to buy them? Thanks for any information.

Avery makes a Fast Grass mat that works well in that cats. You should be able to find them at Cabelas or Gander, or you can order them online...

I like it for cat tails, as to my eye, it blends in better than Killer Weed and the like.

It comes in mats (4 I believe) rolled up.

Installing is easy if you have a frame in place (i.e. boat blind/ground blind)

And when installed, and in the cats...

How is that tangleefree grass compared to fast grass? I went to fleet farm and that was what they had. Haven't checked out Cabelas yet to see what they have.

I've had both the tanglefree and avery grass mats and have found that the avery is way tougher stuff. The tanglefree shreds on the highway a lot more, and it also not as thick to begin with. I tried to save a few pennies by using some old and some new mats this year, and my old avery mats look better than the brand new mats I got at fleet farm.
