I came up with a great inexpensive blind this year----tried it out last week and it was good enough to fool the ducks. I just picked up 4 eight foot pieces of bamboo from the local garden shop, and a 8x10 piece of camo netting----I like the stuff from Camo Systems. I picked out bamboo that had the first joint about 6in. from the top so when I split it down the middle, the split would stop there. Just shove 2 of um in the ground 4ft.
apart for the front and then the other 2 poles 2ft. out from them angled in towards you to give ya some side coverage. Stick the netting in the bamboo slits & a couple zip ties here & there & your good to go.

Nice job!! We just bought some cheap electric fence fiberglass poles, painted them brown and then zip-tied camo burlap backed by green plastic mesh fence to the poles. Works just fine for a quick system along swamps and rivers

That is a good idea! Where I hunt there are no stationary blinds allowed. I was thinking of making one myself that can be easily transported and easily set up. This bamboo seems like a good idea. I hunt in South Florida (Swamps) so Ill need to make sure it stays once the bamboo is in place!
