Default Blind material





Hey guys first year with a boat. Ended up with a 1542 with a 26.5 backwater motor on. Love it. Hunted out of around here and loved took it over to the Mississippi River two weeks ago and enjoyed the hell out of it. But as the season went on I realized I need to find better grass material to out on. Over on the Mississippi the surrounding was much darker and season that later in the year around here. I have the Roger grass matt now. Seeing if there some better out there from people who have had boat a little longer.

May want to try some Rafa Grass. Keep what you have as your base and add the Rafa to add depth and color variations. It comes in many different colors to blend in with your surroundings. Last a long time and is very durable. Just a suggestion.

That should be Raffia Grass. Can buy direct from the importer, Joseph Sterns Company. Google for direct contact information.

ID:	54970If you like what you have but itís a little too light, you can get camo spray paint and just hit it with a light mist to darken it up a bit. The adding of raffia grass to break up the outline as said earlier is helpful as well. Mine needs to be redone unless I sell it first.

It is always a mental problem when you travel. Hunt smart weed you better have a can of oxide primer to mist your blind.
Move to cattails and you want it yellower
Then try timber or buck brush, and you now glow like a neon bulb.

Hid is hid. Overhead cover is far more important than blind color. Movement and concealment are the 2 biggest factors

Color is way down the list. We kill the shit out of Canada geese while sitting parked on a sandbar with nothing around the boat but flat open sand.

GET DOWN AND COVER UP!! And DON'T MOVE
