Preparation for deer seasons

I spent some time this morning before there would be a breeze and spray painted 25 feet of burlap to go around my tree stand. I got tired of buying the expensive stuff that only lasts a year. Burlap is cheap. Doesn't look too bad. I am going to nail it right over the old die cut stuff. The top of that bush behind the burlap was purely by accident.


When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!

That looks pretty good. Branch shadows look real. Where did you pick the burlap up at? Might have to give that project a try.

If you have a Surplus City in your area, they have it. Hard to beat their prices.

They also sell camo mesh, may not be that much more expensive.

Sprayed burlap for my quick duck blinds and to add camo to my boat blinds, but one didn't have too be concerned about the odor of paint or a drying air out time.

I recommend you get as close a weave burlap as you can find, something like the burlap bags are made of. I didn't really pay attention when I bought mine, the weave is more open than I would like. Next time I will pat attention to the weave. It will work fine, but I would like a closer weave.

I assume you will be enclosing the entire perimeter of your bind. The burlap will appear much less sheer once the material has a wall of material behind it. I recommend you make a hat out of that shrub behind the material and sit right in front of one of the tree trunks, in the same manner it appears in your pic. You would be undetectable! Looks good.
