What's the best and most cost effective way to build a good blind? I want one that I can reuse year after year. I've heard that burlap can be useful, is that true?

Go spend 100-150 and just buy a lay down blind that folds up nice. It's the single best waterfowl purchase I have ever made. It makes field hunting ducks and geese enjoyable. And I know I couldn't make something even close to that comfortable or have any idea where to start.

Couldn't agree more.  You owe it to yourself to just buy one.... there pretty cheap and after using one if you haven't already you would never go back.  Building one will probably get heavy, just as expensive, and probably not as durable.

Couldn't agree more with above posts! Just wait a bit and Scheel's, Rodger's or Gander Mountain will have them on sale. I would suggest a Beavertail or Tanglefree blind. Then buy some fake straw/grass from Avery to tie on to really make it blend in. Try to buy the blind in "Farmland Gold" camo. And buy some extra pins...they seem to disapear at the worst times. lol

To be clear... I don't think I have ever actually bought one.. I "borrowed" mine from dad about 5 years ago... He doesn't seem to want it back very bad... Thanks dad! Lol. And I have a freebie a friend was gonna throw away. But, I've helped more than a few friends pick theirs out. Once u try one, you will buy one... If u can't permanently "borrow" one from someone.

I tried making one out of pvc once. It was a disaster. Just buy a good one.
Is it impious to weigh goose music and art in the same scales? I think not, because the true hunter is merely a noncreative artist. Who painted the first picture on a bone in the caves of France? A hunter. Who alone in our modern life so thrills to the sight of living beauty that he will endure hunger and thirst and cold to feed his eye upon it? The hunter. Who wrote the great hunter's poem about the sheer wonder of the wind, the hail, and the snow, the stars, the lightnings, and the clouds, the lion, the deer, and the wild goat, the raven, the hawk, and the eagle, and above all the eulogy to the horse? Job, one of the great dramatic artists of all time. Poets sing and hunters scale the mountains primarily for one and the same reason--the thrill of beauty. Critics write and hunters outwit their game primarily for one and the same reason--to reduce that beauty to possession. The differences are largely matters of degree, consciousness, and that sly arbiter of the classification of human activities, language. If, then, we can live without goose music, we may as well do away with stars, or sunsets, or Iliads. But the point is we would be fools to do away with any of them.

 Tanglefree brand blinds are good quality.
