Help WIth Ground Blind

7 posts in this topic

Gpa is getting pretty old and having a hard time getting into a tree stand not to mention having a hard time staying warm.. Wondering if there are any rules on building some type of ground blind. Mostly having a piece of blaze orange cloth on it or if it is even legal. We hunt public land by remer so there isnt a lot of hunters but some.

I have a Roundhouse Ground Blind that works awesome!!! The only thing is that with Rifle season I believe that you need a good size piece of Blaze Orange draped over the top. Otherwise that thing you can stay warm in, 360 degrees view and Camo'd. Good luck

The blind should work well.Its nice to brush it in but if you are hunting where others are or close to a road then I would mark it well for safety's sake.

Im not sure what the regs are. But if you have been doing it for that long im sure your prolly right on saying you dont need any on it. but i think i willl still wrap a piece of blaze orange around the nearest tree

chris, i think legally (dont qoute me on this though), you dont have to have the blaze orange, but it would be HIGHLY recommended if you did.

Hunting public land I would definetly put some sort of blaze orange on or near the blind. Just to let hunters know where he is. Another thing you could do is maybe get a slow moving vehicle sign and put it on a tree right next to the blind. Those are pretty easy to see and there would be no mistaking that it was put there intentionally.

      Was up at Long Point with 5 guys last Thursday PM through Sunday AM. Thursday evening after the wind went down a bit the fishing was great. Ended up getting our limit for the 6 of us that evening. Ate fish that night. Friday and Saturday were slower but still pretty good. A LOT of little ones so we had to sort through them to get some keeper fish. Ended up getting our limits to take home by Saturday afternoon and then the rain started. Very few slot fish, which was a bit of a surprise. Only 4 over 19.5", with 2 at 20, one 22 and the biggest being 25. Jig and a frozen shiner/fathead worked well. No real preference between the two minnows. Jig color didn't seem to matter that much but we had best luck on gold, pink, chartreuse and glow white. Depths we fished were 21-26 feet, pretty much all those depths worked fine. Really fun trip and I look forward to the next one.

      Here's a couple pictures of one of the 14' boats I redid, a 25hp will be plenty of motor for a 12' boat.  The14' bat in the pictures with the additional weight from the wood would go 26mph with just me in the boat.  As you can se  left the compartment open for the gas tank, so I could monitor the level and so I could breathe better. Send me a message if you have questions.  It's really a fun project to work on these old boats.

      Do you have any pics of the process or finished product by any chance?

      wow, this is exactly what I was looking for. Unfortunately idk what the hell i'm doing, as I have no carpentry skills LOL, but i have a buddy that builds houses, so I am sure he would have the necessary skills and tools to assist me. It cant be too hard, right!? haha. Anyways, I appreciate the information, this is GREAT. Ill be sure to touch base with you if I have any questions. Thanks again!! I have a 25 hp motor right now...really old, a chrysler 25 HP from like...the 70s or 80s. You thank that'll be enough power with the added weight?

          You can keep one Walleye 13.8- 17.7 a day. With the conservation licence you can take 2 fish out with only one over 27.6. and with a sportsman licences you can take out 4 with only one over 27.6.

      Thanks All.   No big plans this weekend and and the weather has been putting a damper on outdoor projects and chores.    Still I might sneak out for a few hours this weekend.

      In and around narrows is where most people were fishing.  Lots of fish under 14 though.
