I understand that turkeys do not respond to blinds in the woods. What has been your experience? Some deer saw my blind today and they didn't like it at all and took off down the hill, but turkeys will walk right up to a blind?

If they do not see you set it up and get in it they pay no attention to it even if it is in a field . They can see motion a long way off and if it does not move it's  ok as far as they are concerned . That's what makes them so affective on turkeys .

I have only been turkey hunting two mornings, but used a blind both times with my son. We used a blind on the edge of the woods and both mornings we had turkey come right in to us and they seemed to never notice the blind. With my very limited experience of Turkey hunting I would rate the blinds high.

I got both Toms this season using Primos Gun Hunters Blind. Stories posted elsewhere. I have used blinds for decades and it works well.  ##$%#14

I have used blinds for deer and if I put them back in brushy area never had a problem, also against a big round hay bale.  Out in open they did not like until it sat there for a week.  The first time I turkey hunted from a blind was in KY and the two jakes came close enough to touch without hesitation.

I never brush them in. Works fine. I am using Double Bull Blinds. The lesser bands can shine and flap. The DB's work best for me @--0--0133
