Default Portable Ground Blind Question

In the land where I hunt I don't feel comfortable leaving my ground blind up for a few weeks (afraid of it being stolen). So the blind needs to be taken down every day. The land is a cut cornfield and alfalfa with mature hardwoods bordering.

For those who hunt out of ground blinds, how well brushed in does the blind need to be if I set up in the cut cornfield? Would a few stalks leaning against it and on top do it or should I forget the ground blind idea?

By ground blind I presume you mean a pop-up tent style blind, I'm also presuming that this will be a gun hunt. Unless your blind is the low slung type that sets up over a pit like goose hunters use I wouldn't advise setting up in the cut corn field itself, you'll stick out like a sore thumb no matter how much you "brush in". When I hunt a field edge with a hardwoods border as you described I set up a few yards inside the tree line with a tangled background to conceal the outline of the blind. Brushing in is something I do only if I plan to stay all day, if your blind's pattern is compatible with it's back drop it shouldn't be necessary, although it doesn't hurt. It tends to be a noisy process, and difficult to do well in the dark.
