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.

 Tanglefree brand blinds are good quality.
