Has anyone made one that is truly collapsible and portable? We hunt several different places and do not want something that is stationary. I have found a few ideas but nothing I really like what have you guys done?

I have 2 layout blinds but was looking for an A frame type blind. I refused to pay $300 for a panel blind.

30% of the time layouts when cold and frozen

The other 70%:

Some of my spots just have 1-2 two ft deep holes dug out pre season and i just lay in there flat with waders and cut vegetation around me. I learned quick that a face mask is mandatory when u lay down.

Agreed. Check out Rob's post here. That's the ticket.

I use tent poles, stakes bailing wire, burlap and grass mats . Not a perfected system but I'm getting close. Buy the tent off craigslist cheaply and play around with it. It should all fit in the original tent bag once you throw out the actual tent.

These may be more portable than what you are looking for but...

The most portable "blind" we have successfully used is burlap attached to whatever is present where we want to hunt such as trees, stumps or bushes. We try to get coverage over us and either in front of or behind us (block the sun).

The second most portable "blind" has been made out of PVC pipe and burlap. This provides more modularity (ex: lean-to or box) to suite your needs including coverage. Easy enough to add some additional natural material to help blend in more. Can make this sturdier by lashing closet rods together instead of PVC.

Both methods are super lightweight, highly portable, and have proven effective when called upon (mostly for scouting new areas).

We carry in burlap and fence stays. We can push the stays in the ground to help create a perimeter to hang the burlap on for walls. Then we just throw some grass or brush up against the burlap. Doesn't take very long. Next year we are gonna try layouts though to make it even faster.

Another cool idea I've heard it to get burlap with some grommets installed. At each hunting location have some predriven t-posts present to make up the corners of your blind. On each post have some wire rigged up so that all you have to do when you get to a spot is connect the burlap to the t-posts with a caribeanner and you're done. After the hunt unhook the burlap and take it with you to the next spot. You could have a lot of spots set up for very cheap like this.

You can build one out of steel tubing.
