It always seems that when hunting season rolls around, we wish we had time to work on our favorite blind - be it a duck blind along the river or a ground blind watching deer trails. Spring is the time to make those improvements, and one of the best things you can do for fall concealabilty is done in the spring.
Take the time to go to your blind, taking a shovel and a set of pruning shears. Begin by using the pruning shears and cutting shooting lanes, clearing interfering branches and underbrush. Then, using native vegetation growing near your blind site, dig up several plants and transplant them around the outside perimeter of your blind. They will grow and develop full foliage throughout the rest of the spring and summer, then when fall comes, your blind will be totally concealed by natural cover and have pre-established shooting lanes set up. If plantings are done early and with adequate density, this nearly eliminates the need for artificial blind materials.
