Do portable blinds reflect heater glow?

Recommended Posts

Boar

I'm gonna be muzzle hunting in my pop up blinds, I'm new to them last year an this year an really enjoy them, especially when i take my kids with. I have always wonderd though about the black interior an the red glow from from a mr. buddy heater, I seem to get this impression that if a deer was to walk by close enough in the early mournin hours I feel my blind would be lit up like a jack-o-lanturn, as the sun rose this would'nt be a problem but before sunrise I think th black interior would reflect the glow from the heater which it dose but to what degree an would it spook deer. Any thoughts on this, or experiences? later boar

Dress like you're ice fishing, and see if you can go without the heater. Your grandpa did for years.....

And yes, one of the fundamental advantages of a blind is the dark environment it provides. Open widows on four sides, or a source of illumination from inside, and you could get yourself busted.

I dont have a problem myself with out heat its taking my kids with an keeping them warm so they enjoy the experience. I guess I'll just have to risk it an let fate take over, or give them some hand warmers or body wraps. Thanks later boar

I think I solved the problem with these little portable grills, there about twice the size as a shoebox an will radiate heat with the lid closed like a patio grill. When we get hungry we open the lid an pop on a hot dog, yummie hot food an heat. later boar

      Manitoba requires the same, and I agree, we didn’t notice a difference either except for keeping bait on the hook.  It’s just a hard mental block to get around. @LBerquist, ouch!  Unfortunately I know what those are like.  Both getting them out of myself and helping others!  You can pinch the barbs down on any hook though.  Some lay down nice and others will break off, leaving just a little bit of a rough bump which I kind of like better.  There’s a little bit of grip left that way.

      Thanks for the tip something new to try 🙂

      I wish barb less hooks were more available. I'd switch, heard they come out easier....

      The gulp crawlers in packages are tougher than those in the alive container.  The one in the picture is from the alive container.  Both versions work well on spinner and slow death rigs.

      Gulp crawler.  In the spot the walleyes were going in there was a pile of 3-5" perch that tore up the real crawlers.   Gulp crawlers took care of the issue and the eyes liked them too.

      When we go to Quetico, barbless or mashed down barbs is mandatory.   To tell the truth I haven't noticed that we lose more fish with barbless than barbed.   Not catching muskies though.  Pike, walleye, bass, lake trout.

      Vermilion might be down a little, but not much.  Your lakes might be different.

      Is that a gulp worm?  I am not on Osakis but cant fish with live bait without the bass, sunnies, and perch hammering it instantly.

      My parents were up yesterday and Wednesday and they did pretty good. Out in the mud in about 33-34 feet. Lots of boats were trolling but they did well looking for pods of fish and then spot-locking over the top of them and jigging with leeches and frozen shiners.
