Brush for a duck blind

Has anyone ever used palmetto leaves to brush their duck blinds? Looking for something new to brush the blind with and thinking about using some palmettos as a base while mixing in some cattails and possibly some sugar cane stalks.


Getting excited for big ducks just over a month away!

Yeah that's good because it covers square footage well.

Not sure if cane stalks are legal. Palmettos do fine as a base layer, turn brown but give you alot of coverage. I'd come back with roseaus and wax myrtles to fill in.

We all use pine tops for our brush. Doesn't make sense logically, but it is good cover and takes a while before it turns brittle.

Wax myrtles can do you no wrong. That and some lucky Spanish moss along with a cedar tree or too.

I get a little too excited to brush

We used to use palmetto too for the fact that it didn't take many to get a good base and then cover with wax myrtle.

Until one hunt when a friend came with us and leaned over before sunrise and stuck one in his eye. He complained the entire hunt and sat there with his head down. We just called him a pussy and told him to suck it up. Brought his arse home and his gf brought him to the ER. Turns out he had a torn cornea. We felt like asses. On the 3 hour drive home, we made him drink to ease the pain, so when the gf took him to the ER, he was a slobbering drunk mess

When building a blind, use what is in the area. If not, the blind will stick out big time.

This. Hilarious to see fast grass in a lake of nothing but pine tops

As to why build those hotel blinds. WTF are people thinking doing that? I when I see them. Sure, birds will come in to them, but once the season gets along, the "good" birds get smart quick.

They get two days tops to shoot at a wood duck...if for some reason it comes near at all.

There is a blind on our lake that is at least 16' long and 12-14' out if the water. My uncle built a pretty big one last year but the holiday inn they built beats anything I've ever seen.

Eh, if a "hotel" blind is built properly and in the right spot it works just fine.

Well the one we hunt aren't towering 20' in the air, just about 3-4'. This is also in timber, typical year about 1k ducks die little over half mallards

Very big difference then building blinds in marsh or open waterways.
