Default Burlap, wire and zip ties

We have needed a second blind to hunt one of our feeders when there is a north wind. There is a tripod there but not enough coverage to keep from getting busted. Yesterday before I left the lease I rummaged around and discovered a bunch of old camo burlap and a roll of galvanized wire. I found a pocket in in the brush under a big mesquite and started stringing wire. About 100 zip ties later, voila’ ! It’s no Krivoman but I think it will work

Looks perfect. Think it will shed water if it rains? I like how you made it blend in like that.

Looks awesome! I hope it's surviving the winds today. Been blowing 30-40mph all day. Starting to sleet a little now.

My favorite kind. One thing I have found is if you can get your hands on the black silt fence fabric you will get a couple seasons out of it. The burlap seems to dry rot pretty **** quick. It will also help a bit on the wind and a light drizzle.

I have found that if I make a burlap screen to leave up, then I can pop up a pop up blind when I get to the ranch and they don't spook. Gets them accustomed to something being there. Saves my pop ups from cows and brutal wind. Deadly combo for me!

Yeah, bad timing - the very next day started 24 hours of big wind. It's down in a creek bottom so I'm hoping for the best. Nice thing is if it took a beating it will be easy to reassemble - unlike pop-ups I've had blow like a tumbleweed into the next county.
