I make them a little taller in the fall for deer than I would in the spring for turkeys b/c I like to sit on a little pack stool instead of on the ground like turkey hunting. I would have to say one of the best natural blinds I have used was a stand of cat tails growing in a moist spot in the middle of a field. I just walked a narrow path into the middle and walked some down for a place to set my stool and broke reeds in 2 directions to shoot out. The ground was a little wet but I wear rubber boots and the stool didnt sink much after I got it in place. It was a great spot, just no deer in bow range that night. I think blow downs are also good spots esp if they are fresh and havent lost their leaves yet.. >>------>
My grandpa still to this day preaches to me the effectiveness of using deadfalls for natural blinds. He claims to have killed many deer out of them. He doesn't like heights and to this day he still can be found cowering around these piles of brush. I will say I will be giving up the tree stand dependence this fall for some in your face ground action with my ghillie suit.
