what do you lay in?

Postby timmer » Tue Mar 12, 2013 9:06 pm

just wandering what you guys use for layout blinds and how you like them, also if you have any nice camouflaging techniques that would be helpful!

For snows I use a stadium chair with armrests and padded for back and bum sprayed with some krylon camo paintt white disposable painters coveralls and burlap from waist down to cut the profile size down
For Canada geese I have 2 blinds, a Cabelas Northern Flight Interceptor cheap and easy to set up folds up backpack and another FA Eliminator Express somewhat easy to set up needs a support for your waist folds up backpack each one weighs around 10-12 lbs. They cost around $150 or less on sale.

GHG groundforce, tanglefree originator, and FA prolandr for blinds, and i'll be using the edge geardown blind for snows this spring in combination with the white cover suit.

As far as camouflaging the blinds, mud, paint, and stubble from the field.

I use the Avery Finisher, but have tried the GHG Ground Force and like both. Both are high end blinds on the market.

I got a Rodger's Goosebuster LP end of last season, and I used it a lot this year. I used to use an army surplus foam pad and whatever loose cover was in my field, but I love the layout blind and not expensive < $100. It keeps some of the wind out, and its so comfortable, I might just go camping in it this summer. As for camo, my opinion is to cut whatever cover is in your field and stick it on your blind. My friend grasses his up with hay at the beginning of the season and never changes it. But it don't really match up with where we hunt, and if we stand up we can always spot his, but not mine.

Yes, the Ultimate has flag zippers on both sides and mesh zippered pockets.

I have found the GHG Ground Force layout blind has worked for me in the past few years. It holds up very well, it's easy to set-up and is very low profile :thumbsup:

I use a Cabelas GT or something like that. I painted it first with light tan/yellow paint. Then I zip tied a ghille cover, makes thatching pretty easy and quick

ghg ground force for the past few seasons. picked up 3 of the rogers goosebuster LP blinds that im gonna use this coming season. The LP blinds are very light weight if your thinking about walk in hunting. I grassed up one of the LP's with the all terrain grass pack and it weighs hardly anything. Also, you can take the headrest frame out of the LP and lay flat on the ground if you just really wanna go low profile but still be in a blind.
