What do you cover your boat blinds with?
I have a boat with blind for the versatility, storage and other stuff it provides. Because my duck hunting mentors used cedars and I'm too cheap to buy camo material, cedar is what I've used for years.
Of course, your blind should blend in with the surroundings, but ironically most all of my hunting spots don't have cedar trees or even other trees nearby. I'm usually in rice/scrub brush or grassy shores. I've had good luck with the cedars as have my neighboring fixed blinds. I'll continue to use cedars.
My boat blind has a mostly open top exposing the boat or shadows in some spots, mostly around where we sit. I know this has been a downfall in years past. I was thinking of installing some roll-up camo material to close up the holes. I would do this with some heavy tan-brown colored felt with something on it to break up the flat surface.
My point: Has anybody sucessfully used cornstalks for non field-hunting camo? I could roll the cornstalks up when the covers aren't in use and they are a natural material. They don't fit with the surroundings but neither does the cedar. Functionally I think they'd work well. Oh yeah, I think I need to take any corn cobs off so I'm not "baiting", right? Is there anything your experiences that says that corn stalks aren't a good idea in this situation?
