Mistakes to Avoid with Hunting Blinds

More and more hunters are choosing the convenience of a ground blind over the traditional tree stand. If you’re thinking of making the switch yourself, or just entering your first season, here are a few common mistakes to avoid with hunting blinds.

Mistakes to Avoid with Hunting Blinds

Not Concealing the Scent

Ground blinds are often made from cloth materials similar to your clothes. This means they absorb the scent of their surroundings. So if you store your blind in a dank basement the rest of the year, it’s going to start to smell like it. So remember to air it out and spray it down with a good scent eliminator before use.

Hunting immediately after set up

Game animals such as deer need time to get used to changes in their environment. While hunting in an open field is certainly possible, a ground blind isn’t likely to go unnoticed. Remember to give them time to adjust to the blind for best results.

Not Concealing the Blind

Unless your hunting in an open area concealment is key. Don’t assume the exterior camouflage will be enough. When preparing the blind brush it into the surroundings using tree branches and vegetation.

Moving too much

Deer and other game animals can see into the blind. So moving at an inopportune time can be detrimental to the hunt. Remember to use good hunting tactics when preparing your shot. Minimizing light access in the blind as well as wearing all black while in the blind can reduce visible movement.

Remember to avoid the mistakes above and you’ll be in good shape for your next hunting trip. For more tips like this contact us today.
