I either hunt out of a pit or A frame, exclusively. Back issues, plus me just being old, love the comfort. I don't even know where my layouts are anymore, and i'm super happy about that!!
I have noticed no difference at all, and like DUKMAN says, I can't explain it either. We some years get beans planted, so we still put out the stick up blind, brush with grasses, etc. Sticks out like crazy!! The geese really don't seem to care. I'm pretty lucky to have a few farms with exclusive permission, so I can just put my blinds out at the beginning of the season, and leave them until it's over. IF your going to do that, make sure to stake them down, I've picked up many blinds up 100 or so yards from where they were, wind can be nasty sometimes.
I faced the fact a lot of years ago, i'm not counting on killing geese for my livelyhood, or depending on goose meat to stay alive. So i'm going to hunt the way makes the hunt more enjoyable and fun!! Stick ups and pits make it way more enjoyable for me.
Won't hurt to try, what's the worst that can happen? One other thing, I usually make mine light as possible, something that you can handle by yourself if you need to. I've learned over the years, it's easy to get help putting blinds out before the season, everyone is cranked up about the upcoming fun..but normally when it comes time to clean them up in Feb/Mar., i'm usually on my own. I use 2 X 3's for that reason, treated 2 X 4's for the bottom that touches the ground. Makes it light enough you can stand up and flock into the back of a pickup, by yourself.
