Default Hunting from a ground blind?

I have recently bought a new brickhouse blind to hunt from becuase I have a knee injury.I have never hunted from a blind before and need a little info on setup.I am not going leave it setup so leaving it out and brushing it in so the deer to used to it.I know that turkeys with a blind is different than deer hunting and that is all the info I can find on blind hunting.I was thinking that I could make a ghillie cover for the blind like the ones ameristep sells for their blinds,but I would make it to look like a haybale because I hunt alot of farmland.Also is there a website/webpage that deals alot with ground blind hunting.Thanks

You could go to any store that sells sporting goods and look for some camo / burlap or netting and add real hay or straw to it to blend it in to the field.
I know it sounds like alot of work but it might work or you could go to Cabela's they might have that kind of stuff there.

Machinist,
Your Brickhouse has loops all around it midway up the blind and at the top.
Cut local vegitation from the area you will be hunting and place it in the loops. (This is called brushing it in).
This is very easy to do and only takes a few minutes

Just FYI

They are not the loops you use to pull open the blind. They are loops made of the same material as the blind in the same color as the blind that go around the middle and top.

Usually you want to cut long pieces of surrounding vegetation and slip them through the loops or just use the loops to assist in holding the vegitation up against the blind.
Cut vegetation that is somewhat away from where you are placing the blind because you want to keep as much of the original cover around the blind as possible
