I bought a ground blind last year on sale its made by yukon if anyone has heard of that brand Ive never hunted outta a ground blind...Do you have to weather seal than like a tent? Do Deer Pay A lot of attention to then? any info you could share or tips would be nice
I suggest you check out the forum "Ground Hunting, Still Hunting & Stalking"
here. There is a tremendous amount of information there from the past. Just click on the link.
I would also suggest you use the search function for some other information in different forums.
Some of the suggestions I learned - if you can get them set up a month before assuming you are hunting the same area. They will get used to them.
Brushing them in will help. As far as waterproofing I guess it depends on the material. One concern I would have is the smell. Maybe it would go away if you leave it out to weather but then the UV rays may deteriorate it?
I have a ground blind and all I do is set it up and soak it with a hose and so the fibers/fabric will swell. I have done that with tents in the past and had good luck when I used to camp.
