    Default Predator hunting from a folding blind?

    I'm thinking about buying a camo blind to use in the winter for predator hunting and ice fishing.

    Has anyone had success from such a setup for predator hunting, or what do you think about the idea?

    My thinking was that a guy could pull a sled with the rig a mile or so from a road, then have a nice place out of the wind to call and glass for yotes and such. A small propane heater might work well to warm the inside up a few degrees. Also, the blind should reduce human scent, right?

    I was looking at a few shelters and they are virtually identical to some ice fishing shelters, but just camo rather than a solid color. The only other difference might be mesh windows on the camo blind types vs. clear plastic jobs on the ice-fishing style shelters.

    Worth a try, or would any critter with a pulse not come within 2 miles?

    Even a jackass won't stumble on the same stone twice.

    The heater is 100% silent. Would animals smell it?
