I just spray paint the window if it is behind me and I will never been using it. Burlap camo if I need it there temporarily (while in the blind)

I went to Walmart and bought two sets of cheap black curtains. I think they were roughly 3'x6' each. I used hooks to hang them from inside the blind and could block the side and back windows of a 4x8 blind.


Thanks,
Rich

She's behind the burlap in the blind.

Fence side widow is open with the same burlap for a curtain.

Another blind of mine, I use it for the window behind me, and it works well to darken and break up your outline from the front view.

windows or open? If windows just cut a piece of cardboard in a small square and place it on the window - then spray paint the window all around -

if it is open use the camo wrap with magnets

TV room black out curtains on Amazon. I have Velcro on the corners to hold them up if I’m actively viewing.

I bought a sheet of corrugated plastic at Home Depot and cut to size of the window and spray painted black. I also bought a roll of 1 inch magnet and stuck on the edge of plastic so that I can just put it on the window and it is easy to move around to block the sun.

Sniper Veil Mesh

I prefer using sniper veil mesh. It has much better sight picture than the other options mentioned.
