This “Stealth” duck blind takes less than 9 minutes to set up. Fits completely in the back of my jeep with plenty of room left over for dog & decoys.
7′ T-posts (4) for the back
6′ T-posts (4) for the front
Camo netting (2) One for front & one for back order from wwwabatureoutpost.com
Raffie grass hanks (6) order from www.jstern.com (The hanks I used came in three colors. I’d grab a handfull and zip tie securly to the top of netting around the rope. I would also tie off a third of this same hank about half way down on netting to keep from the wind blowing it all over the place.) Any other holes that you see in front can be covered with smaller bunches of raffia. Be sure to cover entire back at least the upper 1/4th so your profile and movement is not easily picked out.)
Zip ties (S-ton) from Home Depot
25′ rope (2) I zip tied it to the top of the netting for added strength as it is draped acroos T-posts.
Tent stakes (6 or 8) to secure the bottom of the netting and pull it out so as not to sag.
Back-roll out the netting/grass and set your 7′ posts on the ground one foot from each end and then two additional post that split the distance between the outsides.
Front-lay the 6′ posts overlapping the 7’s by 2′. (This ensures the proper clearence between front and back when blind is set.)
Using a sledge hammer drive the 7′ in at a 45 degrees. The top of the post should come up to your chin when you stand next to it.
Now pick up and drive the 6’s in at the same 45ish degrees for the front of the blind.
Secure the netting to the top of the T-posts making sure to pull tight between posts to limit any flapping in the wind.
Excess rope on ends can be tied together between front and back providing more stability.
Tent stakes driven at bottom of netting periodically to keep taught.
Once this is completed you can gather local grass and brush to place around the bottom of blind. The brush really helps with the 3-D effect.
Be sure to have face paint or masks on for best results.
