Ground Blinds A Lost Art?
By Toby Trigger
Making ground blinds isn’t complicated and knowing how might just help you bag a big buck.
Finding a key location where deer, elk or other game are travelling is tough sometimes. But finding a good location with adequate cover is almost impossible. So there you are, bucks are scraping on a hillside right where three old fire roads connect but it’s wide open. What do you do?
Try piling up a bunch of branches (that have naturally fallen) tall enough to sit in front or behind to conceal your outline and sit. You can even lay up against a pile of brush to quickly and effectively hide.
Ground blinds can be elaborately made to include a roof and holes to shoot out of but when all you really need to do is get concealed quickly, try this trick. It might be just what you need to punch your tag.
