Building a field blind?

Postby Tool-Man » Mon Aug 11, 2014 3:01 pm

Looking for a blind that I can break down and pack out. Anyone have anything like this that they have made?

Check out Fast strike blinds. Their website sucks but I think I am going to order 3 or 4.

I am pretty sure I will never own one of those at $200 per set. I would hate to spend $50 on them.

I'm thinking something for 4 guys, covers the head when it's up, opens for all to shoot, reasonably easy to pack a good distance and will be able to be brushed up.

Pretty easy to buy a piece of trex decking drills some holes and thread some rubber bands.

How far do you have to pack this blind? Are you hunting water or fields? Lots of options to choose from.

Boat blind won't work? No packing, easy to brush up and you can bring a ton of gear.

A great field blind can be made with chicken wire and canary grass. Paint the wire and then the easiest way to get the canary grass in the wire is to weave 2" PVC pipe thru(every other row) the wire and then stuff the grass in the PVC. Use the flared end of the PVC pipe to stuff the canary grass in and then when you have the canary grass in the tube pull the tube out and the canary grass will be in the wire. What I do is make 2 8' sections. You can hold them up with fence post stakes. When you role up the wire just put them in the role. Works great and blends in nice east side or west. I will try to post some pictures. Hope that helps.

Get one of Paul's Aero Outdoor blinds. They are easily packed out since they are lightweight, and you can put them together with snap pins instead of bolts for fast build/tear down.
