Hunter in ground blind
Ground blinds can provide effective camouflage to conceal the hunter.

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.

  • 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
  • For safety when you are entering or exiting a ground blind:
    • Keep the firearm’s muzzle pointed in a safe direction and...
    • Safely unload the firearm and put the safety in the “on” position.
