Postby timmer » Fri Jan 25, 2013 1:35 pm

whats the best color i hunt mainly wheat stuble and alfalfa and corn im thinking bout buying a straight brown or duck blind i like the duck blind because of the green dull color for alfalfa and the brown for stuble or do i just get brown and buy some fake grass and use some natural?

Go with brown Colored layout blinds are a waste of money!! The first thing you do with a layout blind when you buy it is mud the crap out of it covering up the camo pattern.... :hammer: :hammer: I dont know why they even make them in a pattern

I bought the max 4 and it was so shiny and I mudded the crap out of it anyway. Plus I brush the hell out of it so it wouldn't matter what the pattern is. If I were to buy another I would do the brown.
Also I hunt alfalfa mostly.

I understand the whole brown color, but I like a brighter camo that will show through the mudding a bit. It dulls the color but still maintains the pattern to help break up the blind. Helps when there is little natural stubble to be found. KW-1 is my preference.

I have one of each and by the time I'm done mudding and stubbling I can't tell the difference from 10 yards away.

Buy brown and dust it with rattle cans until it broken up.

There is nothing better than hunting with friends and then crackin' a couple of cold ones afterwards.

If you can still see the camo pattern, you're not hidden. Brush your blind in until you think it looks good, then brush it some more.
