Make them outta burlap but make them two or three layer thick sleeping bag style with one side open also add strips of elastic every 6-12 inches for stubble they seem to be the easiest and most effective and if you want you can also add a brown tarp on the inside to keep the snow and moistuire out just a simple idea :idea:
Homemade and did the trick on the geese for me. I get more enjoyment out of making something and trying it out over putting out tons of cash on stuff.... As long as it works why not try and do it yourself !
Homemade blinds..As a backup blind I still use the old timer reliable burlap stapled to survey slats and binder twine weaved in to form a loose net and then I just cut willows, cattails and sometimes corn stalks..or just thatched in the barley swath..I think I have one in my old postings somewheres towards the end of last year somewheres...this one was a two person and rolled up easily. You don't always have to use a lay down blind..It may be true as the season lags on geese may get wary though...anyways works for me
I also made a single laydown bliind fom a lounge chair..you will find it also in my old postings.
Last week I bought a Kodiak Flannel sleeping bag in tan color $11 and my wife sewed in elastic stubble straps.. $8 Just like c-dubb said..this will back pack well
Guess what..I finally ordered the new release FA Express Blind from a Canadian supplier at an unbelievable affordable price!! Thanks to Mikeo2 and his friend Jason..
I think you got a good blind kandahar. When I was talking/buying with jason last weekend we were talking about the Express blind and he said that he really liked it when he tried it. I ended up spending $600 that day, boy conversations with him are expensive. :lol:
Thanks for the advice.. :shock: I won't jabber too long with Jason.. :roll: .I hope that he will be able to bring in GUNS real soon....I might pick up some windsocks too down the road when the Hunting season is confirmed for me to go. :beer:
