Help WIth Ground Blind

Recommended Posts

gopherfisher_22

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.

      Well that is pretty sad. Had a lot of good times, burgers and dinners up there snowmobiling and 4 wheeling.   www.grandrapidsmn.com/...hill...squaw-lake/article_aa3b5546-f7ed-11e7-b45d-c34d... https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=4&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwjnv_rsyOrYAhUGEawKHV-ECfoQFghCMAM&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.grandrapidsmn.com%2Fnews%2Ffire-destroys-the-hill-bar-in-squaw-lake%2Farticle_aa3b5546-f7ed-11e7-b45d-c34d5b1f648a.html&usg=AOvVaw1LRiuHCFf3M7Xusreg7vdH

      Nice Bluegills Ricky! Those thumbnail sized opercular flaps are super special. H e l l those are thumbers!

      Well, check that one of the list. After trudging through the slush Saturday we were rewarded with a handful of undersized crappie. We'll have to try some of the options around Pelican next time. Happy, safe fishing everyone.

      Beautiful weather on Sat and Sun. but plenty of traffic! No traffic today but still a very slow bite this morning. Could just be the weather change!??? Cliff

      Heading to that area this weekend - Curious as too how much snow cover is on the area lakes, and whether it's even worth bringing the wheelhouse?

      I spent 3 hours last Saturday morning working on “the catalog” then went about my weekend, planning to finish at the end of the weekend.  Went to open it up and the new laptop won’t make pictures on the screen.  Tried everything; no dice.  Have to return the piece of Black Friday junk.

      Cliff, did you have a lot of vehicle traffic around you on Saturday? Maybe the bad fishing on Saturday was just the weather conditions, although Saturday was beautiful weather-wise.

      Same here. Thursday was a good bite and the weekend bite was mostly a bust! Cliff

      I think he's going to not wash it and keep telling everyone at the bait store and on the lake he's a Pro Staff on HSO & Outdoors Minnesota. Until someone sends him a HSO hoody or new hat!
