Concealing Hunting Stands
Concealing a stand does not have to be difficult, while these ideas are not free; they all can be used from one season to the next and are very effective.
I have had great luck with artificial Christmas tree limbs when concealing stands, if you watch the dump after Christmas, you can often find a few trees in need of recycling. Also at the end of the Christmas season you can often find a retailer or two in town selling left over artificial trees for next to nothing. They are realistic, for all intents and purposes do not weather and once placed do not have any perceivable scent.
Thin rubber sheets can also be used, they can generally be purchased in the plumbing department of the big box home improvement stores as shower liners. While they are relatively expensive, they do prevent the wind from whipping through the stand and are waterproof, and like the Christmas tree limbs they are relatively long lived.
Canvas or burlap has long been a stand by for concealing stands, again, not that inexpensive but it will last from year to year, prevents wind from entering the stand and helps keep you dry. Look for remnants at your local sewing/craft shop, often they will have a few pieces that can be used for individual walls but are too small to be of any real use to a craft person, so you can get them cheap.
Landscape fabric is also excellent for blind material, it is relatively durable, weather resistant and best of all inexpensive. Landscape fabric is strong enough to allow branches to be tied to it and yet is lightweight.
