Make your own Low Water Blind

Dont like the pricey blinds that they have for sale at Cabelas or any of the other big stores that generally go for around three hundred dollars? I have a new blind that I put together that can sit in  2-4 inches of water and can be completely undetectable by the birds. Here is the good news they are cheap to put together and they are light to move around and can also be multiused for other hunting jobs as well.  Here are some of the things that you are going to need to make one of my low water blinds.

The first thing that you are going to need is a jet sled. Make sure that it is at least 5 feet long since you will be lying down in it when you hunt. And also make sure that it is at least 4 inches tall.  Jet sleds can go from $20 to $150 dollars. The good thing about the jet sled is that you can also use it to carry all of your hunting gear to and from the marsh. And it doesnt have to be just for a blind.

The next thing that you are going to need is fast grass. Make sure you buy the color of fast grass that goes best with natural color of marsh that you hunt in. Make sure you buy enough fast grass to cover your entire self along with parts of the jet sled. Fast grass can go for around $20 to $40 dollars. Other uses that I have for fast grass is for goose hunting and other areas of hunting where you might need to conceal yourself.

Another thing that you might want to purchase or make is some kind of back rest where you can rest your back and head comfortably and have a better vision on where the ducks are coming from.

Now you have a nice low water hunting blind that cost you under $200. 

Happy Hunting
