What are ground blinds?



Ground blinds are temporary structures that a hunter sets up before hunting season begins. They can range in size from a single-person blind to a miniature shed-like structure which can house up to three hunters.

An advantage of a ground blind is that a hunter can sit inside and be hidden from the sight of game animals. These blinds are very effective when set up in by known game travel lanes and on the edges of crop fields and overgrown areas. Pop-up or manufactured ground blinds that are enclosed with a roof are excellent, especially if it rains or is windy since they protect a hunter from the elements.

The disadvantage of a ground blind is if the game animals cannot see the hunter, neither can other hunters. For your safety, any ground blind should be clearly marked with blaze orange to let others know that someone is inside or around the ground blind.
