haybale blind

5 posts in this topic

Has anyone tried the haybale type blinds made by otter outdoors. I usually hunt a field with pits, but I would like to try some new spots this year and will need to make or purchase some type of blind.

laydown blinds seem far more versatile, however if I had access to fields that actually had other hay bales in them I would probably invest in a haybale blind just so I didn't have to shoot from the laying-down position.

Hunting partners use them in Canada with success. They are getting older and it is easier to sit in a bale blind than to try and raise up from the ground.

If the field already has bales than just use them to hide behind. I would definitely go with the layout blind. Gimme a shout I can maybe save ya a few bucks on a layout blind.

i've seen people hunting out of them, and if there are no other bales in the field, the bale blinds look pretty goofy and seem to stand out

      I'll stand behind Steve's ice rods!   I was able to get a nice collection of them last week.  Some panfish rods that I hope to work out tomorrow, and some walleye/laker types that I used today.  Great feel, light, and well built.       I connected with a couple mid-20 inch lakers today and couldn't have enjoyed the fight any better on another rod.  Very happy!   Thanks Steve!

      Not bad! Was the ice soft all they way through?
