Snow Cover

Postby Goosecrazy » Sun Dec 16, 2012 5:00 pm

Bought a Rodgers Sporting Goods snow cover. Used it for a morning shoot, and it turned yellow from being exposed to the sun. Anyone else have an issue with this. Gonna try and see if Rodgers will exchange it.
Seems like all this chinese made goods never get field tested prior to the actual hunter using it.

All of my snow covers for my 6 blinds came from Rogers & the only problem I had was 1 time my snowcovers got a yellowish brown color to them & that was because we had a good rain before the snow started falling & the mud on our blinds started to bleed through onto the snow covers. So now when we have even a hint of snow coming on I take & rinse all the mud off the blinds & have never had the bleed through issue. We have had geese flare off the blinds before when we put brand new covers on the blinds, and I couldn't figure it out until a buddy of mine gave me a deadly hint. Take your new covers & throw them in the wash w a U/V killer detergent. We did this & now finish geese within 10 yrds of the blinds . Hope this helps you

Thanks for the info.

Rogers is sending me a new cover for exchange. Great customer service. But Rogers did say not to wash. So now sure what to do when they get soiled.

They mean don't run it through the washer. Just get a big poly tub, fill it with warm water and some dish detergent and a splash of bleach or borax. hand agitate it for a few minutes, let it soak till the water is cold and then hose off to rinse. Should take care of any stains, including blood, whiten it up without BRIGHTENING it up and you won't tear it up like in the washer. Hang to dry.
