Does anybody have any input for a particular dog blind? Will be hunting fields and from solid ground, so no need for a stand or extendable feet. I've noticed the GHG Ground Force Dog Blinds are on sale right now... Any pro's or con's to be aware of? I appreciate it...

I have the older finisher pop up dog blind and love it. Really easy to set up and light. If you plan on ever hunting flooded timber I would go a head and get the MOmarsh invisilab G2 Dog Blind. I wish I would have got that one since it can be used in almost all situations.

I had the Rig'em Right triangle looking blind and it was awesome but the straps didn't hold up to two summers in the attic. All the straps on my layouts did fine but that dog blind they just fell apart.

I have always just used burlap. I'll also tie some killer weed onto it. Get the burlap that is not thick, "tightly woven", lighter woven is better. I could completely cover up my dog and she could still mark birds looking thru the burlap like the pic below.

I like guy's way. I use the same thing unless we are hunting black ground. My black bitch blends right in then.

If you do get one I would recommend one a little more low profile than the Momarsh. Momarsh invisilab is the best dog hide out there for hunting in water but isn't exactly designed for field hunting.

Only problem I have had with Guys method was if we are hunting geese and they are coming out group after group with hardly any time between the bunches. I found it kind of a pain to have to try and cover my dog up so I would just let him lay down behind my layout blind. I never really noticed any difference trying to cover him up or just letting him lay behind my head.

You really do not need one. I do alot of dry field hunting just train your dog to lay down next to your layout blind.This year I will hunt SD, IA, NE, OK, MO, TX, KS all dry field hunting. I will not have a dog blind with me. A dog blind is one more thing that needs to be brushed up. A dog that is well trained is more important than a dog blind.

I have a GHG Ground Force since it was the lowest profile at the time and attached to the Avery Ruff Stand as well as the stand. Both are BNIB and have been sitting in my closet for 3 or 4 seasons now. I'll make you a deal on them if you decide to go that route.

When the geese are determined to get into a field it doesn't matter at all. I have had snows land on the ground in between Bullet and me. Twice he has snatch them in that situation. I would say it doesn't hurt to cover them when the snows are wary of a spread and looking closely before they enter.
