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.

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.

      Private landowners interested in learning more about managing their woodlands for habitat and income can attend a low-cost workshop and field tour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Cohasset Community Center at 3rd St. NW, Cohasset. The Itasca County Private Woodlands Committee is hosting the workshop with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) program. The workshop aims to educate landowners about timber management and how to thoughtfully and purposely harvest trees to create better wildlife habitat and generate income from a timber sale. Woodland owners can also learn about options for enrolling in a tax incentive program to reduce property taxes. The day will begin indoors with a series of educational sessions about managing forests to benefit a variety of wildlife, working with a consulting forester to write a stewardship plan, the mechanics of a timber sale, and how to contract with a qualified logger. After lunch, participants will board busses for an afternoon tour of different sites to see first-hand the differences in unmanaged and managed timber, and previously cut timber in various stages of regeneration. “Our last workshop this winter in Palisade had over 100 attendees and we are anticipating strong interest in the Grand Rapids area, too,” said Grand Rapids area CFM Forester, Josh Donatell. “Over the last 20 years, there has been a decline in timber harvest from private lands. This program helps restore lost habitat on private land as well as promote a more stable supply of wood and fiber for the timber industry.” Pre-registration is required. The $20 cost includes lunch and field tours. Participants should dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Anyone interested in attending or registering can contact Josh Donatell by email at josh.donatell@state.mn.us, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/workshop.html.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
