I just bought the A Frame Blind at scheels in Springfield and not sure what all prep needs done before it's field ready. With all of my layouts I've mudded them in to eliminate shine. The instructions didn't mention mudding, I'm sure it would be a good idea but with temp at 16 degrees, it would be difficult. Any advice or experience would be appreciated as this blind will be a new way for me to hunt. Thanks and good luck to everyone.
