id like to see a photo of this field..?
Hay bales are a good idea. Thanks for the tip.
I don't have a photo on my phone. I'll have to get one this weekend.
We used to hunt an 800 Acres Sod Farm before moving to Missouri. Nearly impossible to hide in the middle of a great big Green carpet. But we found what helped out was covering ourselves in burlap on the harvested sections that were just brown dirt.Match your burlap color to the dirt or sand, ditch the blinds and be still.
What direction is the wind coming from?
^ This right here has worked great for me for many seasons.
I understand the enjoyment of hunting with fiends but at some point you may have to decide which you had rather do; lay in a field Bsing with buddies and watching geese fly by or just hiding yourself or 1 other and maybe killing some birds. In your situation the fewer you have to hide the better.
It is usually either from the SW or the N.
These are a bunch of great ideas. I may be hunting solo this weekend, so I will try to get out in the middle and blend into the dirt. I am going to experiment with some spray glue and burlap.
Get some dirt from the field add water to turn it into mud. Soak the burlap in the mud and let dry. Repeat as nesessary to get a good match.
Store your burlap in an old duffle bag. You can mud this bag too.
Place your decoys in the middle of the field. Lay on the ground 20-25 yards to the side of your decoys facing downwind. Take the burlap out of the bag and then place your decoy bag in the duffle bag and then use your burlap bag as a pillow. Place the burlap on top of you covering everything but your eyes. Keep your gun on your side pointed downwind. After the birds land shoot, the banded ones in the head but remember to sit up slowly as to not get your gun stuck in the burlap.
If you have snow create a short long snow fence and poke blinds in the drifts
