Ground Blinds: Modern Tent-Style ground hunting blinds are obvious choices for hunting in bad weather, and are really handy for taking kids turkey hunting - or any restless adult for that matter! Motion is the #1 giveaway to the sharp eyes of a gobbler.
Pros: Allows you to stay in the field longer during wet weather, and hides most movements when inside the blind.
Cons: Large sizes can feel heavy during long hikes, weight and bulk can limit your mobility, and being inside the blind can feel confining when the weather is nice outside.
- TIP: It's important to pay attention to the seating within the blind, as you will want to test the height of the seat in relation to the shooting windows - an often overlooked consideration!
- TIP: You may want to keep the windows closed in the "back" of the blind, since a turkey can easily see any movement of your silhouette between two windows...........
