Portable Blinds For Bow Hunters

Blinds Department
              
 

Bow hunters are beginning to use portable camouflage blinds a lot more than a few years ago, especially for turkeys and deer.  The right type of blind is mandatory if you plan to routinely bag turkeys with bow and arrow.   There are a lot of models on the market, but I find most have major design flaws.   Things like Velcro attachments on the shooting windows.  Have these manufacturers ever tried to detach a window flap with Velcro after a gobbler just snuck in on their location and he's eyeballing the blind at 10 yards!!  Also, most companies want to lighten up the blind by making it with nylon material.  That material makes so much noise during rain or wind you almost have to have earplugs to hunt from it.   And their windows---most have too few.  The shape and size are usually about 6 times too big.  But, don't despair, I have several choices of excellent blind designs for you to review as you read on.

 

The primary reason to use a blind is to camouflage the movement you  make while drawing your bow.  I recommend a portable, Full-Coverage Lightweight Cloth Blind, made from camouflage material for convenience and fast set up.  It can be placed exactly where you want it.  In addition to hunting, the blind has other important uses.  It can be used for training a novice turkey hunter and for photographing wildlife.  The typical youngster or older novice turkey hunter fidgets around and can not sit still, often unknowingly.  The blind solves the movement problem and lets the newcomer see turkeys under natural conditions.  Photographers find that this type of blind allows them to take rolls of film of the same undisturbed turkeys, rather than the single shot afforded by smaller or less concealing blinds.

 

These types of larger blinds are probably best suited for placement in good strutting, roosting and feeding areas that have been determined before the hunt. They can be set up a couple of weeks before season and camouflaged with natural vegetation.  Although it's nice to set them up in advance, turkeys will not notice a well camouflaged blind even if it was set up the day before.   I prefer to set them up early simply because I want to let the area cool off from my intrusion for a few days before returning to hunt.  On the other hand, I have set up blinds quietly in the morning and had birds within bow range the same morning.  They also work great in very open areas where you normally wouldn't be able to hunt.  I've also set them up against large, round hay bales in a pasture to fool turkeys that like to stay out in the middle of those types of fields.  Try one along a fence which can act like a funnel to direct turkeys right to your location.

 

For those willing to spend time building an effective, portable, full coverage blind, I recommend my Construction Blueprints as a guide for building my Specialized Bow Hunting Turkey Blind.  I have used this round design for the past 25 years very successfully on turkey, deer, elk and antelope.  A square blind is just as good.

 

Select a blind that has at least 8 shooting port holes, is made from quiet, cotton or cotton twill material.  Also, select one with a roof to keep the inside of the blind dark.  Then, on a sunny day, your shadow will not be moving as with a blind that does not have a roof.  A good blind is fast to set up...less than 5 minutes, and ruggedly built for years of service.

 

With a blind, your confidence will improve, especially if you strategically locate it in the proper place.   You will be able to remain Patient for the hours that it often takes to have success.  To further aid your hunt from a blind, I strongly recommend a good Seat Cushion as part of your gear.

 

Try a blind...you'll like it!  Without one...well....you'll find the Butterballs in the frozen foods section!
