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.

      Got one over 40in on a small local lake like 3-4 yrs back , 2lb line...fishing panfish. Got a pic up in the St cloud reports somewhere. But biggest was just shy of 43 on Rainey River about 20 yrs ago

      If you make up it up this way at all I'll have the peg on a good bite somewhere. Sometimes traveling a little farther north makes ice fishing more enjoyable. Keep on posting, we have tons of well educated anglers that roam these forums!

      I'm slacking bud, I haven't done any of that yet lol. The excitement is here though, been talking to some co-workers lately about all things ice fishing. Soon enough guys!!

      My troubles are that even with the hyfax on the slides the munchkin take a little bit of a kick to get started.    My sled does not have studs and has carbides on the skis. So when I hook up to the house with the tow bar the track spins without breaking the house loose. It's like hooking it to a truck. Too much power on the sled side and no ability to transfer it to forward motion.    The 4-wheeler with chains has zero problems. Pulls it like it's not even there.

      I'd like to see this expanded to help revive our pike size and population.
