Layout Blind

I really enjoy Goose hunting and I am ready to buy a Layout Blind. Can anyone recommend a good one with the pro's and cons.

Thanks
John

I favor the Avery Finisher blind. Folds up smaller and takes up less room in the truck than some of the backpack style blinds. Most of the fields we hunt require us to hump our gear in. I can carry blind, shotgun, blind bag and bag of full bodies in one trip. Guys with the backpack style canít carry in as much gear when bringing blind into fields

Boom! Boom! Boom!

Get one as low profile as possible I have ditched my layout for the ones with the pad to lay on and cover. So much easier to brush in and blend in then a clunky lay out.

Yes they are an interesting way to hunt. Only had one outing with them and that was enough!! If your going for an hour hunt. okay maybe, but if your like us and birds are 8 to 11 never know when they may show. Laying on cold ground, odd angle, is just not the way.

Better off using someone Else's see if you like that style. We spent an hour trying to brush in, started to rain, then tried to find comfort, then here come the local educated birds, buy the time we got our odd twisted bones up to shoot they were gone. In an area that has new birds that are coming in dumb, they maybe a good idea. Like Pheasant Guy, allot less bucks $$ you can try laying pad on the cold ground and see if you think its a good idea.

I never thought it was a good idea, never spent to $$,still don't. Working on a couple of blind ideas. Local geese, squirrels, turkeys, and deer are all we have to hunt, gone are the rabbits, grouse, and pheasants, which is what I started hunting.
