Our Stump blinds blend into the landscape so well, that it’s possible for deer to accept them as part of the natural terrain. Their round shape makes them look like a tree stump, as the name implies. This makes the blind look more natural and less detectable by deer. Our Stump blinds are designed to be inconspicuous, and you can help the process by adding extra camouflage to your blind.
Place Your Blind Along a Tree Line
Placing your Stump blind, like the Stump 4 ‘Vision Series’, along a tree line will help drive home the facade that the blind is a tree stump. When a blind is out in the open, with no other cover, it may alert the deer that there is something wrong in the area. Sharp angles can be an indicator to the deer that the blind is something man-made. The smooth, round edges of our Stump blinds make them appear to be a tree stump. Deer are less likely to be tipped off to danger when they see our Stump blinds. If you nestle your blind among a line of trees, it won’t stand out to the deer as anything out of the ordinary. It would blend in and appear to be just another tree stump in the woods. Make sure you set your blind up weeks before you plan on going on your first hunt. The earlier you can set it up, the better. Setting your blind up early will give the deer time to get used to its presence.
Place Your Blind Among Shrubs and Brush
Using the natural cover of shrubs and brush means that you can use fake moss, vines, leaves, and other foliage to blend in. The added layer of material on your blind will help hide the door handle and allow you to adjust the exterior of the blind to match the hues of the bushes around it. You can completely customize your blind to the specific terrain you’re surrounded by if you use fake foliage. If your foliage is convincing enough, it may even encourage the deer to come closer and investigate whether it’s something they’d like to eat.
Use Our Stealth Screen
Our Stealth Screens provide an extra layer of protection to help you stay incognito. The screens have a camouflage image that featured leaves and tree branches that look very realistic. They appear more like a picture than a pattern. They will blend in to virtually any type of landscape. There are options to fit every Stump blind we offer. The screens are designed to be one-way viewing: you can see out, but the deer can’t see in. Keep in mind that the screen is not designed to be shot through, so you’ll need to open the screen when you’re ready to shoot. The screen and window open silently, so you won’t need to worry about scaring off any potential tags.
If you like your hunting blind to be completely inconspicuous when you’re scouting out wildlife, use one of our Stump blinds and add a little bit of camouflage. The added layer of illusion will throw deer off your trail and could present you with the perfect shot opportunity.
