Default Marsh Blind Build

guys, looking for some input and ideas on how to build a blind in marsh.

just joined a club which already has multiple blinds in place, some in good shape and some not so much... anywhere from platforms, island pits, and 55 gallon drums, etc.

question is, i will be rebuilding some and tearing others down and starting from scratch, and i will be looking for ideas and input from you guys on what works and what doesnt work.

please post pictures of builds if you can. this marsh is a mixture of salt/prairie grass and some patches of roseau cane throughout some ares.



thanks is advance.

We made a boat slip with t-post and hog wire then brushed the Hell out of it. Pull the boat in and hunt out of the boat. Works fairly well if you have a boat comfortable enough to hunt out of.

Are those barrells cut in half? Does your feet touch the bottom if your sitting on that wider board (right side of pic)

Started out with 55 gal drums when first started hunting marsh. They restrict your range of motion, you're always standing in the water which isn't fun when it's cold, and they also make a great spot for water mocassins to hang out during the offseason. We started building platforms. Little more work to hide em, but well worth the added comfort. Just back it up to a big rosseaux patch and that will help conceal it alot.

Never had any of those problems with ours. We bail them out after a rain and never had a problem with restricted motion. Snakes aren?t much of a problem but mice sure stink after they have been dead a while 😃. We still have a few platform blinds but find the barrel blinds more comfortable. To each his own.
