I have a lund 16' vhull and I was wondering what the best blind material to use is.
I am torn between the grass mats like quack grass, or the camo netting like flyway systems. I was wondering what you all think is the better material. I am in CT and hunt everywhere from salt/freshwater marshes, backwaters, swamps, lakes, and the sound itself.
I was thinking of copying the cabelas northernflight style of blind for the framework and using old driving range netting as the backer for either of the materials. Leaning towards cordura for the 3d netting though.

The best boat blind I hunted from had three layers of materials...
First was a layer of black material like gore-tex. Wind proof and waterproof. It will hold in propane heat and keep the wind out. I like comfort.
Over that goes a layer of black netting. The small hole stuff.
On top of the netting is tie-strapped on mats made from palm leaves.
I left mine out in the rain on purpose so it'd mildew and turn a bit black.
If you have allergies you may want to ignore this post.

I have personally used netting with a lot of raffia on it on my previous blinds. This year I am trying the seasonal fast grass and raffia combined on my boats.
