I stalk them...I wouldnt see a prob with a blind. If you scare them and one, by luck or lack there of, happens to run into it...you have nowhere to go. They just wouldnt know the difference between the blind and woods. I have a friend who was turkey hunting and had a cow walk into his blind.

Like Phall2 said! You have to be sure there are hogs in that particular area and hope they come close to you. I have always dog hog hunted or stalked them! I don't wait untill they come looking for me.

get one from wally-marts. those that spring up. brush it in and keep your scent down they do great. If you can find their travel routes it will help a bunch. Food source, wallers, and where they like to bed down. perty much like deer. I concentrate on food and wallers. G/L.

Wjrich63,
I hunt out of a ground blind about 90% of time now!Guided some 30 hunts through the courseof this year out of Ameri-steps G-20 and Penthouse blinds!We hunt some extremely thick cover which can make spottin and stalkin a little tough.I also guide on some farely small tracts of land so dogs would just run em to the next piece of property too so we stick to this casual way of stand huntin out of ground blinds over an active wallow or food plots.I like huntin out of a ground blind for HOGS much more than a tree stand simply because a ground blind does a terrific job of covering your scent.I take all my blinds and make sure I have no holes particularly the infloor to prevent drafts which will carry your scent out of the blind.I seal the floor just using dirt to cover any openings.The only opening of course I have is the one we shoot out of.The Penthouse is amazing in that it has thin membranes over the windows or portholes that act as a scent barrier but that you can see out of AND shoot fixed blade broadheads out of!They also keep ya dry in wet weather...The only down fall I've come across of a well scent tite blind is they are hotter than **ll in warm conditions!Heres you a link to take a look at a few blinds...Bob

Sorry about your leg, I guess I'm gonna have to push you aroud in a wheel chair to take you hog and deer hunting. Poor wife and daughter. I know you are milking this for all its worth. Get well soon. Give me a holler.
