Question Krivoman blind concealment/brush in

Just want to pick the brain of the Green Screen. I have a Krivoman blind that I am gonna use for bowhunting. Any suggestions or brush in pics? Post what you got.

In the past I didn't brush in pop ups, but Im thinking the Krivo might need some help. Opinions?

Put it out early and you don’t have to do anything.

I’ve set mine up well before season under mesquite trees with great success. Didn’t brush in at all.

Probably never hurts to brush it in but I’m not sure if it really matters.

I bought it for my wife to hunt out of. Had it setting on a trailer, well she hasn't hunted in 2 years, soooo, you snooze you loose. But bowhunting I was concerned I would need to conceal it. Now these are SETx deer, they a little more jumpy.

Thanx for the replies

In for pics and ideas as well. Picking mine up on the 17th and setting it out. I'll be putting it on a 2'-3' wooden platform as well.

I always brush my stands in. Sure your local deer get use to your stand but what about that big bruiser that's out roaming during the rut that shows up and there is your stand bigger than Dallas, I had that happen to me several years ago I had my regulars around my feeder and stand and I see a big mature buck that I had never seen before and he spotted my ground blind about 100 yards away and off he went. Never saw him again or even caught him on camera. Just my opinion brush it in.

It's a maverick blind, I always brush them in and they never look at me.

We usually let it grow up around them and trim lanes. I have several that are in the open and the deer don’t mind them at all.

I painted mine camo ( probably not necessary) and set it under some trees for shade. Had deer pics right in front of it within the first week

All the “brushing” that I did. Killed my biggest buck out of it as he was chasing a doe. And tons of pigs too.

8x8 is perfect. Gives you a landing to walk on to get into the blind. Also no cutting, just bolt together.

I built a pen and put my Krivoman out about five weeks ago. Had does in the feeder the next day and 2 nice bucks in within a week. They get used to things quickly.

Wouldn't it be best to lift the Krivoman so you can shoot over the pen?

Yes it would, but when you're by yourself and pinched for time, you do what you can. I've got a platform that it will go on, but it'll have to be after this season. I hope I can get a shot on my side of the pen before he/it gets in. I dislike pens, but in the round of 1.5K pics before I did this I had about 1.45K pics of pigs and very few deer. Solved one problem and created another but at least this way I have a sporting chance.

I gotcha! Just asking as I am picking mine up and wanting to build a platform. We don't have pigs yet so don't need a pen just yet.

I set mine up in the open along a main road
Deer and pigs walk by it just like any other object out there.
I was proud of my painting skills till I saw some of these.
Mine is a 8’x8’ base 6 foot tall but more importantly in the afternoon shade of a large oak tree.

For those that don’t have big enough trees for shade I used a cattle panel attached to the sides and arched over the top. You can take some carpet, army netting or just a bunch of cedar branches and place on top. Creates a canopy above the blind to keep it cooler and helps break up the outline a little.

As others have stated I don’t think it’s that important that they be brushed in as long as you get them out there early enough for deer to get used to them.
It probably doesn’t hurt to take some black spray paint and break up the windows with a tree pattern. It’s easy and cheap. Shade trees don’t hurt either.
Here is my Maverick.
