How long do y'all think those birds will be brave enough to keep letting a truck drive by in range?

As long as you don't start hunting them there, all season long. If anything they will get more secure that they are in a safe refuge.

If it is not, they will learn that pretty quick :yes:

I've never done it, but it could be one of the best blinds ever. Expensive, but effective.

Yeah, expensive... I wonder what the fine will be since I'm sure that green jeans would call it a vehicle.. But since you're stealing all of those birds from the Atlantic flyway, you'll get what you deserve.

I know you were joking, but for all the adam's out there Red did say park it. As long as it's not moving it would be ok. Now brushing it could be another story.
