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

      You are paying for it one way or another it is worked in the rental fee or you pay at the road I guess its a matter of preference. Places I go at milacs always had the road pass "included" I think when I rented from up north rental on red I had to buy a pass going out of rogers.   Beacon Harbor it was included

      Fun day today fishing with Rick G and Jim Uran. Caught a lot of fish and we kept some nice ones for the tummy   Rick got biggest at 12 3/8.  And we got into some neat looking party crappies also. LOL  @Rick G  @Jim Uran   Hopped in the shower as soon as I got home to warm my wet arse up. Sleet and snowy day. Enjoying a glass of Pinot Noir right now and fish fry time Thursday night. THX for the maple syrup Jim ! !

      I went out of fish lake and with my leg,  found a hole just a bit smaller than a man hole, right in the middle of a well traveled and plowed road. I Informed the folks at the high banks about it so hope they marked it. I also found several other holes from old holes widened to around 12". Im done driving for the year. If I had a house out there I would be getting it off ASAP.
