portable blinds for turkeys
« on: April 01, 2012, 10:43:05 AM »
i have a three stake mossy oak treestand die cut blind i bought in 1987. it has three metal stakes that you stick in the ground and a 27" high x 12' long mossy oak treestand die cut fabric twisted tied onto it. it rolls up to about 2" dia and came with a strap which holds it tied up and acts as a shoulder strap when your moving sets up in about 30 second. i beleive it was from HIDE UM HUNTER products. does anyone use something similar. this blind lets you move behind it and you can call with a turkey 10 yds in front and he cant see you. it also works for deer. i have harvested around 20 birds with it. its a part of my turkey hunting must haves. you should definetly try one

I have used something similar in the past and I have also hunted from a full pop-up blind.  Depends on the situation I will be getting into.  If I am taking a youth I always use a fence blind of some kind.

I have used several kinds of blinds over the years, and they are all deadly. For some reason, turkeys pay no attention to them at all. I have used a full pop up blind and more than one portable blinds. On one farm, we hung camo burlap on the cow fence (with the farmers permission) and it worked like a charm. You cannot go wrong with any kind of blind with turkeys. #1 it conceals all your movements and #2 they do not shy from them at all. Real good idea when taking a very young (or active) hunter and very good for the senior hunters as well.

You guys have given me an idea.  I already have a section of camouflage netting, and tent stakes.  I better get to work!

When I started using those tent blinds I started killing Turkeys.  I set them out 4 weeks ago and let the birds get use to them.
