Default Homemade Blind ideas-----Pics will be appreciated

I was wanting some ideas for good homemade turkey hunting blinds. Im currently deciding to use it for bow and shotgun. Anyone have any ideas? pictures and/or plans would be very much appreciated. Also, I would like to consider any tips on placing a blind in an effective location. I have always been a Run-n-gun type of guy but i have introduced my grandpa and little brother to a blind and have never hunted out of a blind.

Default Blinds

Don't forget the old method of limbs, small trees and brush as a blind, they rock!

dvefussner's way is the way I do them. My favorite spot is a place where a few logs are pushed to the edge of a field. I have a large log behind me, then there is another large log directly in front of me that I use as a gun rest. It provides perfect concealment.

Keep it as natural as possible. The only thing it doesn't protect from is rain from above.

You can buy pop up blinds for just as much as material to build one, and they are alot more mobile than something you would build. You can put a pop up blind in the middle of field and not even brush it in, and the turkeys do not see it.

I really think before I went threw all that trouble I'd carry a pop up blind... Less garbage in the woods too

geez dvefussner's looks like one of my blinds. I almost thought it was pic of it. Mine sits on a ridge like that and everything.

Anyway I agree except I would add the tried and tested method of sticking evergreen branches like spurce or cedar in as well. You take that blind in dve's pic and stick some evergreen branches up out of the windfall he's stacked up and you are in a great set up.

A tip from AJH I've usd is to just do this with branches around you as well. You push the trimeed off evergreen branches into the ground around you. You can have great concealement and breakup in about 5 mins when on the move. I think my garden snips is one of the most important things in my vest. If I could only take the absolute min it would be gun, 2 shells, my tag, one mouth call and a pair of snips.

I am a run-n-gun turkey hunter at heart. But I often sit in good areas hour or more at a time. So, I made a very light weight, effective blind from aluminum "electric fence" posts (painted flat green), and what I call "army tank cammo". Mine is about 16 feet long and 4' tall. Cost maybe $20-$30. Four posts, a little parachute rope and about an hour of time. I back up to a big tree, wrap the blind in around me, add a few sticks for good measure and have a seat. I have never weighed it. but I'd say 3# max. Just roll it up and move on. I use a salvaged leather belt for the roll-up cinch.
