    Lol..... birds love to lounge around on a nice flat mud mound. Why change that?

    You must hide in the mind of your quarry and disappear in plain sight. Do not fight the mud, be the mud!

    I used to drag all kinds of fastgrass and native material around but not anymore since I have become one with the mud.

    Someone here gets it.

    Most the guys on the refuges have no idea how to hide or understand when the birds are seeing them.

    That would be perfect if they all flew 5' high.
    How do you break things up so they can't see you from above?

    You're on the list Mike and it ain't good. Can't help it if I was born ugly.

    Damn Larry,... I didn't say anything about your hat, and still made the list?.. hope you, Steve, and Tyler finish the season strong, and have a good Christmas.

    This is close to the above.
    This role of Reed Fencing from Home Depot
    https://www.homedepot.com/p/Hampton...al-Reed-Bamboo-Garden-Fence-0406164/203580820
    With grasses or Cattails zip tied in.
    My role of such with ditch bank grasses weighed about 35 lbs with 1./2" conduit in three places (Both ends and middle) 12" in diameter.
    Stretched out, it looked like this
    This stuff is extremely tough.
    I've had this on blinds for four years sometimes outside continuously for several months next to the house.

    Answer: Fish and Game Code, section 3502, which is derived from a provision of the Penal Code dating to 1909, prohibits using “any mammal (except a dog) or an imitation of a mammal as a blind in approaching or taking game birds.” Since dinosaurs are not mammals, you will be ok as long as your blind can’t be confused with a mammal.

    Whatta gona do put a goose on the stand.

    D.A. Mr. Goose explain to the court what you thought you and you friends saw walking towards you the day in question.

    Mr. Goose. A green bull
