    Hello Airgunners…

    I'm new into Hunting, specially Walk & Stalk or hiding. The only small game I've killed so far are birds standing out of my house.
    When I go to a desert or forest type area I can't "eliminate" any type of animals because I don't have any camo gear and birds, rabbits, etc… can spot me from miles away.

    So I have chosen to buy some camo clothing and I want to build some type of hides where I know small game can be found.
    This way I think I can patiently wait and have more luck instead of walking like a fool and being spot before even seeing an animal.

    I wanna have some input on the best types of Hide I could build. I know that they must blend with nature… (I won't build a forest green hide in the desert or viceversa) so you can conceal from the prey's eyes.

    I'm gonna be hunting rabbits, quails, pheasants, doves and pidgeons mostly.

    What do you use? Natural things that can be found in the hunting zone or artificial nets like this?

    I haven't used blinds much myself-I find just sitting still in my camo gear works pretty well for the critters I hunt (rabbits and ground squirrels). For skittish game I like to scan with binoculars from a concealed spot before I move into a place I'm hoping to get a shot. There'll probably be all kinds of opinions on this subject. Admittedly the weather in my area is always pretty nice so shelter from the weather is not necessary very often.

    The weather here is great actually, no rain at all and not too much wind. Honestly I haven't had any luck trying by walking through bushes and trees. I can hear when the animals running away from me even when I'm still far away from them. 

    I know I'm doing something wrong so far since it's always the same issue.

     

    Cheers

    When I bought a Sitka GoreTex jacket and pants set (with the sub-apline Gore Optifade pattern), ALL the sudden I would see tons of animals on my trips to the mountains lol!

    Totally coincidence, but kind of funny how it panned out.

    Look at the ghost-blind… It is a mirror finish that will reflect the surroundings.  Works great.  I love mine so far.

    A tip is to put it out and let it sit there for a good while and let the local fauna get used to it before trying to hunt.

    A camo net from Walmart is backpack friendly and cheap just drape it over your head. Same with the little foldable seat $30 bucks total and you have a easy to carry sit against tree hide that will breath and as long as your fairly still will work great for bugs bunny and squirrel
