I've spent a bunch of hours in the garage this last couple of weeks, grassing blinds and listening to the Mariners lose. At least the blinds turned out good. I used three of the cheap Auscamotek pop-up blinds I mentioned in another thread. I wanted three different colors for different vegetation and times of the year. I tried to blend the main color with a small amount of the other colors to give them a little bit more depth. A bit of natural cover added (especially on top) and they should make blinding up way less labor-intensive. Trying to "hunt smarter not harder" as I get older. What do you think? BTW, I found the raffia grass from Heavy Hauler to be really good stuff. :tu

Those do look good. I have a couple of layout blinds and I think I want to grass them differently for different applications. If I had all the money in the world I would have a few sets of Tanglefree blinds blinds (I have one set of two) and a few Tanglefree solo upright blinds, all grassed differently.

What I do now is grass my Tanglefree panel blind with BlindGrass as a base and augment with vegetation from where I am hunting that day. Taking along a cordless hedge trimmer speeds this process.

They look great, only thing I might do is flop some over the top into the backside of the blind for a row, then you don't have the dark. it would help hide the hole on the top

What I usually do is get about three sticks/branches out there, and zip-strip some natural grass or brush to them. I use those on the top to cover half or more of the top hole. :tu
