How many of you hunt on the ground?

Do you use the portable blinds (ie Double Bull) or just make a blind out of brush?

Not too many trees in central texas strong enough to hold up a guy my size, 300+ lbs.

I use a Double Bull T5 when I hunt on the ground and during the turkey season.
Double Bull blinds are the best blinds on the market.

I use the Double Bulls; have the BS5 and the Matrix. Awesome blinds; expensive but no wind flap and no shine cloth. Quiet material too and lifetime warranty. The only problem is that whitetails don't tolerate same day setups up here very good and at $400 each I don't like to leave themout overnight. Blinds should be brushed in and you need to have camo shoot thru netting like on the DB's as whitetails won't tolerate black holes from unnetted windows. DB tells this in their videos and I have found this out through experience. They do help contain your scent and I have had does within 10 yds downwind and never smell me. They also offer more comfort than a treestand and are warm. I would go with a hub style if you don't get a DB.

I understand the great effectiveness of store-bought blinds. I really do. I once read G. Fred Asbell's book on Stalking and Stillhunting The Ground Hunter's Bible. He showed some great natural ground blinds that he made, and basically showed how you can make a ground blind anywhere you go. It's really a great book and I'd recommend it to any bowhunter. I don't think you can beat a natural ground blind. The best way to really do it, is to get out there and experiment with it a little bit. Try building some this summer, and see how they work, how they look, etc. I had to build a natural ground blind last year because I broke my leg and it worked wonders for me. I had deer walking by at 2 yards. Didn't have a clue I was there. Of course you have to consider wind as well, don't ever forget about the wind!
