Ground blinds are makeshift or temporary structures located on the ground that conceal the hunter.

Ground blinds can be as simple as a natural blind built behind a tree bush, log, or rock, or as sophisticated as a portable, enclosed camouflage-cloth blind.

Hunter in ground blind
Ground blinds, often made of branches, conceal the hunter.

You should situate ground blinds:

  • Downwind, based on the normal wind pattern during a given time of day, such as morning
  • Away from the sun
  • Where the foreground and background are safest
