Who Should Buy Duck Blind Grass
If you are looking to be more successful hunting from your blind, you should consider using blind grass to help you blend in to the natural environment.
No matter if you are hunting from a boat, dry field, or flooded field, extra cover is going invite ducks in while drawing less suspicion.
It is important to make whatever blind you are hunting from look like something that naturally exists in the area you are hunting. You don’t want to just put some grass on your boat and have it stick out like a sore thumb. Ducks will be peeling off like you wouldn’t believe. Try to make it look like some willows etc. and you will find more success.
Important Features to Consider
- Mats or Loose. Mats are generally easily to use and set up. The downside is that they are not as versatile as loose grass. If you have the time and patience, nothing is going to beat well placed loose grass on a blind.
- Blind Type. Are you hunting from a boat, a sunk-in blind, or from dry land? How are you going to anchor the grass to your blind? Both important considerations to think about when planning out your purchase.
- Terrain. It may seem obvious, but make sure you select grass that is going to match the terrain you blind is in. If necessary, you can use rattle can spray paint to customize the coloring to make it match the surroundings better.
How long will these grasses last?
If well taken care of, you can expect to get at least 3 years of use out of these grasses if not more. If you can, try to let them dry out after the season. Replace what you need to as necessary.
Is the grass flame retardant?
No, to our knowledge, none of the products recommended above are flame retardant.
