Learning how to build portable hunting blinds can be a fairly simple and straight forward process. Ideally, the best hunting blinds allow you to see in a 360-degree direction without being seen by wildlife. Of course, you can always purchase a portable hunting blind, but this will come at a high price. Instead, consider building your own portable blind. When done correctly, you can erect one in a matter of minutes.
To build a portable hunting blind you will need
- Four to eight poles five foot in length (Wooden, PVC, or Piping)
- Camouflage Netting
- Spray Paint (green, brown, grey)
- Cut your poles to the appropriate length. The poles of your portable hunting blind can be made from any type of material: wood, PVC or pipe. When using a shiny material, like piping, to construct your portable hunting blind, spray paint it with a camouflage color, so as to not attract attention.
- Cut the poles so they form a spike on one end. You will be driving the poles for your portable hunting blind directly into the ground with a hammer. If possible, and you expect a hard or frozen ground, cut the poles so they resemble a spike on one end. This will allow them to be easily driven into the earth.
- Begin erecting your portable hunting blind. Begin to drive the poles for the hunting blind into the ground. You will want to erect a square or rectangular space. The more poles you drive into the ground, the more room you will have to move around.
- Hang the camouflage netting over the poles. Erecting the rest of your portable hunting blind is a snap. Just hang the netting over the poles. You can cut holes into various spots in the netting to allow you to see all areas of the landscape.
