:withstupid:
I havn't tried it either, but the word on the street is that it brushes right off. If I have to hunt in snow this year I'll buy a can and try it out. I'd spray it on something else to check that it would come off easily.
I love my job, it fascinates me. I can sit and look at it for hours.

We're going to try this out as well!

I'm not worried about getting it off our layouts though.. All you have to do is scrape off the inch of mud that's caked on them!

They didn't make a cover for my X lander for a long time, so I just use cheap white fitted sheets. Put them out so they get frost on them, and I'll throw some snow on when they are on the layout. Then I don't have to worry about scraping the snow spray off when it warms up outside...

I have used the cheap snow that you get for .99 cents at wally world. It seems to work good because if it warms up and the snow around you melts it will disolve around the same pace as what it does around you. The only thing is is that it leaves a white residue on the blind after but you can usually brush it off with your hand. This is my third year using it and for the price I think it works pretty good.

What we have been doing is covering the blinds with snow on the sides, then puting white sheets or towels on the doors by means of close line clips and the birds haven't been flaring off of it. It has worked well for us. :thumbsup: , plus you can use them time and time again.

I have a snow cover for my finisher and it looks too yellow. For a fresh snow I use that cotton decorative snow that you use for x-mas and it works awesome. For half melted fields or just a light snow that spray works really good and comes off with a broom.

We used the snow spray this weekend and it worked out ok. The white sheet is the way to go. We just made small holes and used zip ties around the stubble straps. You can see one blind on the left with the spray. You have to put it on before otherwise it will not dry properly and will flake off.
