    Default making blinds

    So how are you guys making your blinds? Especially out at the flats where there are no trees? Do you need just a front wall or do you need some sort of roof and back wall? Are you sitting or standing mostly? IF sitting what do you use?

    I'll make a square out of 3/4 conduit and wrap it with some sort of blind material. Usually around 4'6" so that when sitting i can have just my eyes above the blind and when standing to shoot its not in my way.
    It's not skybusting if you fold em'.

    So l yesterday scouting around all the open water I saw was out in the middle of fields. Do you just throw these up right next to the water? Silly question but just seems like you'd stick out like a sore thumb. The most natural place I could find was the channel connecting the ponds. But not sure how I'd hunt that. I think dekes would get run over plus may not be safe shooting wise. But there was lots of ducks in that channel

    Depends on where you are hunting.. You don't want anything making you look like a unicorn.. lay down on the ground if it's that short and cover with fast grass or natural material and vegetation. Use a burlap bag, sheet etc and zip tie natural vegetation in it like a blanket. Or just buy a layout blind. We use marsh seats in the marsh where reeds are 5ft talk.. Even 2 ft tall helps when seat is pushed or adjusted lower.
