Follow up of my earlier post. I didn't add in the Turkey side of blinds.


Blinds: The use of turkey blinds is legal under the following definition:
Any artificial or manufactured turkey blind consisting of all man-made
materials of sufficient density to block the detection of movement within
the blind from an observer outside the blind. Artificial or manufactured
turkey blinds consisting of all man-made materials means blinds must be
constructed of plastic, nylon, canvas, cotton cloth, plywood or other man-
made materials. Blinds made by piling rocks, logs, branches, etc. are
unlawful. The blind must completely enclose the hunter on all four sides
and from above to block the detection of movement within the blind.
When fluorescent orange is required at a stationary calling location in
fall seasons, at least 100 square inches must be displayed outside the
blind and within 15 feet of the blind, visible 360 degrees. inches of solid
fluorescent orange material, visible 360 degrees, must be worn at all times when
moving. May be removed at a stationary calling location, but displaying a fluo-
rescent orange band is strongly recommended.

In Pa, you just can't injure trees and such. You can use natural deadfalls andbranches for a blind.

It's insane tosayyou can't hide behind a few dead trees and some available brush during bowseason. I could see the law making sense during firearm, I hear it gets a little crazy in PA.As a matter of fact, I don't think I'd be hunting anywhere on the ground during firearm season in PA. But bowseason is another story. What's wrong with making a blind out of dead natural resources? .............EarlyIn, you might have misunderstood me, I wasn't suggesting to cut living trees, I pretty sure I said "blowdowns".

No pigiron, I didn't misunderstand you. I was justsaying what they don't want you to do, that's all. All naturalblind is a great way to hunt during archery.

I can't find my handbook but I'll look it up tommorow in my grandpa's.

I don't see why you couldn't just pass it off as a good spot. Like it was like that when you got there, I'm just pretty sure I read it because I remember being confused about it.
