Put together a pvc blind (fairly easy to move, take down and setup)
Previously I have always used chicken wire and reeds to fill in more permanent blinds
I was going to do something like this for the pvc setup
But looking at the sheets of duck weed stuff they sell would get pretty expensive
Looking for a cheaper alternative
I'm not sure how well actual reeds will hold up if it gets moved much

Don't waste your time with PVC. Get some 14 gauge square tubing and weld your own panel blind. We built 6- 7' panels and 2 end panels and covered them welded wire fence with fast grass on top of that. Then wove bungee cord through the fast grass to stick natural cover in the blind. Total cost was probably $350 and it should last us forever. The panels attach with pins. If you think it's something you may want to do let me know and I will post some more detailed pictures.



I just noticed you already built the pvc blind. Sorry. Offer stands for anyone else who may want to build one.

If anyone is looking for 4x4 grass sheets I have a few dozen I'm looking to get rid of.

I like what Guy did his boat with the large roll of burlap and grass.

I like Burlap myself. Once it gets a little wear, it looks good.

We have bigger permanent blind we use but the pond I typically hunt is about 20 acres so k was looking for an easy moveable option for the opposite end of the lake or even take to public lands at times
I would be interested in the material used to cover that blind though
