Default HELP....duck hunters please

Okay well being that i have my boat now i can duck hunt on the river from it. well i really dont want to buy a boat blind being since they are $$$ so would it be easy to build one, if so can someone kinda tell me how? i have a idea in mind, but just want to see if there is another way.


or would building a permanent blind be easier? id rather have a pop up blind so i could move around. and i dont want other hunting my blind.

Fool, some 1/2 inch PVC, camo material and a little ingenuity can make you a great boat blind. I made one years ago and it worked out great.

Fool, I have never built one before but I think I got an idea that may help you. Build your frame out of the 1/2" PVC. Get either 4 pieces of 3/4" pvc or even 4 vertical rod holders and install them on your boat. You could install them so that they can be taken off and on. Slide your 4 legs in and put some sort of cotter pin in each leg so they won't come out while travelling. May be a good idea.

thanks for the link, that one seems complicated.....


im thinking of


mounting rod holders and sticking about a 6 in peice of pvc out of it.
at top of pvc, mount a hinge.
mounted to the hinge is a pvc pipe going up to desired length.
then at end of pvc stick one of those connectors.
stick another pvc pipe into connector.
then do the same steps (1,2,3) for the front of the boat and then you have one side complete (frame)


then i do same steps for other side of boat. and either use burlap (i will be hunting kinda wooded area) or use brushing (bought some at wally world for like 15 bucks for 5 ft. )

is this a decent idea?

If you are going to use PVC to make a frame........I strongly suggest using 3/4" size pipe at least for the supports legs. Using 1/2" schedule 40 [white] is just too light weight. Maybe the schedule 80 [thicker pipe] in the gray color.....a 1/2" diameter might be ok. You might be able to buy 3/4" white cheeper than 1/2" gray. Don't glue all the fitting together.....unless you have some place to store the frames during the off season.

I also suggest you plan on 3 supports on each side.

To keep your boat more versital.....so you can hunt and fish without doing a lot of work to remove your "Blind".....you might consider making a PVC pipe frame that you can just set into your boat. Maybe for your 14' boat....make two seperated frames, about 5' or 6' long and 3' wide and what ever height you decide it needs to be. If you plan on extending the boat blind up near the front....these legs would be shorter to sit up on the front deck. These would be easy to put in the boat to go hunting and to take out when not needed. To "attach" the frame to the boat...use bungie cords. You could hook one end to a boat rib and then after stretching the bungie, make a mark on the PVC pipe where you could drill a small hole to attach the cord hook to the pipe.

Then attach the blind material [maybe with some velcro] to the pipe frame and let it hang over the side of your boat. Along the bottom of the blind materal attach a pole [cane pole ??] to weight it down some and to give you something so you can roll up the material for storage or when traveling in the boat.

Are you planning to cover some or most of the top to better hide from the ducks? If so, you could just attach a pole to both ends and "drape" the blind materal over the frame. This would be quick and easy to set up.

Hope I wrote this so you understand......If not, I would be glad to talk with you to better explain.
