I am def. going to use more paint and limbs and branches but was wanted to know how much more paint should be added before the limbs and branches. Sorry I should have stated that in the earlier post.

Also I noticed Walmart sells the leaf material that you can put up and down your ladder on a ladder step. Would this be a good choice to put around the edges?

I'll be honest with you, camo is for us hunters...If you put that in place a couple of weeks the deer won't give it a second look...

I wouldn't stink it up with paint this close to the season...

Drap it with camo netting and cut out your openings so you can still roll them up and tie them off.



No paint, only stain to preserve the wood.

first off make it black inside and wear black when inside. That is first camo hint. Second, if it is new to area and w/ dewer season starting alot of areas I would break the outline w branches all willy nilly on the sharp curves. You could paint it pink the deer won't know.
