    Looks like these blinds will work if used where they are intended to be Zink does not advertise them to be used in the middle of fields they are intended to be used along ponds or in fence rows.

    Nope not advertised as such, but they still work in the middle of fields

    NO ONE in my area uses A-frame blinds. I would like to see what happens, but you think I could put one in the middle of a field and finish birds at 15-20 yards?? I am still skeptical about birds picking these out although your video showed the birds coming right in. Thoughts?

    Ben,

    I've sold a few to folks in your state. So I'm sure you will hear about them very soon !

    One of our best blinds on the eastern shore of MD this year was a box type bind that was covered in cedars. It looked like a large (6-man blind) green bush out in the middle of a sparse winter wheat field. I thought for sure there was no way it would work, the geese would pick it right out, etc.

    Well some did, for sure, but we finished good-sized flocks right in front of that thing throughout January. For the most part they worked better than they did over a pit in the same field. It seemed they bought the idea of it being a tree/bush more than they cared for the mostly brown cover of that pit. The only time the pit seemed to do measurably better was when we had snow on the ground and the pit became invisible to the birds.

    My thinking is this. Stale or locals maybe get away with it once. Migrators should be no trouble. My concern is how does it work in the middle of a field on sunny days? Got to throw a big shadow. I bought a Ameristep one man blind. Its spring loaded so have lots of shooting area especially behind.
    Going to try it on snows this spring. My opinion based on 40 years of hunting geese.
