The only problem I have had with blinds they stickout like a sore thumb if you dont brush them in or put them in a thicket I tried them for youth hunts the deer detec ted them right off so think about these things when you set up your blind I do use natural ground blinds I build out of brush or cane good hunting

I do have a good spot in a thicket picked out for it I also brush them in heavily to minimize that sore thumb appearance as much as possible. I have had good luck with them in the past. I usually set them up weeks before I will ever hunt out of them.

Mine never seemed to bother the deer. Sat right on the gas line and they acted like it wasn't there.

Never used anything. Just bring them in every year. But they won't last forever.

Just saw this on the outdoor channel yesterday. seemed a bit crazy to me but the fella mixed mineral spirits with silicone caulk and went over the seams. It seems to me that would give you some oily/stinky residue, but he swore by it. Can't remember the show.

I heve done thisto tents before, the WHOLE tent. It works really well. It mimicks what is put in syl nylon tent material. A tube of silicon caulk, 1/2 gallon of low odor mineral spirits. Takes alot of mixing time. Brush it on, leave it setup outside a couple days and youre good
