I hunt up there where you live for about a month every year. Hunt barley, wheat (both kinds), peas and fallow. It's tough changing out camo on the layouts, sometime daily, according to where you spotted the geese the afternoon before. SO....here's my project here at the "home" this spring and summer, before we leave in September.
I acquired a large, used fishing net down on the coast and I'm cutting the net to size to fit each side of the flip open sides of the layouts. I'm attaching dyed and painted raffia about every 4 "holes" (squares) in the net by folding the rafia strands over, sticking the loop thru the net, and feeding the loose ends back thru the loop and pulling tight. My objective is to only have to attach the appropriate "net blanket" to the layout in about 4 or 5 places with velcro (permanent attached to net). My layouts have two flip open sides each, full length.
I have ordered the dye combinations from Ritdye.com and will dye the raffia, nets and all, the proper colors to match the different fields up there in "God's Country".
I have already completed two camo blankets to cover the portable field blind. I painted them first and still have to dye it barley brown. Had been using willows and the "portable" blind was getting a might heavy for this old fart. Heres one of the portable blind nets raffia'd, undyed but painted: Top row was every 2", rest of rows 4" apart.
