  • Ground blinds?

    I've had a several people tell me I'm crazy for using one when baiting bears. I only have full use of one arm so climbing a tree is a process for me. I'd planned on using a pop up ghround blind but guys keep telling me thats no a good idea. what do you guys think?

    Go for it. Most guys use a tree for better shots.

          I have 2 sites about 150yds apart one is equipped with a ground blind and the other is equipped with a tree stand. Just be cautious to your surroundings and you should be fine.

            From my personal experience the only problem with a ground blind is my lack of large mature boars while I am in the blind. Same site, same year going from ground to tree stand really increased the size of bears that come in. Just my .02

              I have a site with a blind. But since I'm never around I don't had any experience but along as you have either a buddy with a gun or a you feel comfortable by your self then don't worry.

                I have taken many using a ground blind.









                Be safe and good luck.

                  Just make sure your back side is well blocked off and doesnt allow a bear to access your blind from the rear. I would probably try and find a group of 3 or 4 large spruce and try to set up in the middle of the group, then reinforce the back side of the blind with some pretty stout 4-5" spruce poles then cover in moss and brush. I have always just used a stand or platform, but i've been cooking up this whole ground blind idea in my head for a few years now. Might go for it next year.

                  Also, I would make sure i have a can of pepper spray rather than worrying about having a big gun, although i never approach the site without my shotgun w/slugs, but if a brownie decides to poke his head in your blind, you be much better off giving him a quick shot of pepper spray rather than having to deal with F&G with a DLP case...

                    I shot one out of my bright red quick fish 3 ice shack yesterday. I think they are great for sitting all day. I can not sit perfectly still for 8 to 10 hours so it allows me to move around, stand up, lay down, or do whatever I need to.

                      Absolutely nothing wrong with ground blinds when the site is properly set up to use one. They are a great way to go. They are light, portable, easy to set up, and they are great for masking movement.
