    That looks awesome.... a couple dozen decoys and stay completely still looks like a weary birds worst nightmare!

    IMHO cover is great, but the biggest culprit for flaring birds is human movement. You can get away with a lot if you can read birds and stay still at the right time. I like to be able to see. Too much cover not good. Yes, use the most realistic natural flora you got.

    This one is a lot of fun to hunt especially in a south wind. Birds use the tall road as a wind break. It is so cool when they are coming toward you then disappear behind the road. The next thing you know they pop up right in front of you.

    B92FF6A3-67B2-4058-A266-7341B02B5ADF.jpeg Made these flips in my buddy’s welding class-channel iron, electrical conduit, compression couplings, rebar, hog wire or green garden fencing, stainless bolts, scrounged some materials, maybe $150-$200 for 8 flips.
    Weld rebar to channel iron, bend conduit 90 and 45 deg. to make panels, zip ties.
    Pound 3/4” pvc pipe next to blind, insert rebar, easy to take out for blind lids.
    Flooding this week
