Course Outline

Ground blinds are makeshift or temporary structures located on the ground that conceal the hunter. Ground blinds can be as simple as a natural blind built behind a tree, bush, log, or rock or as sophisticated as a portable, enclosed camouflage-cloth blind.

    • Downwind, based on the normal wind pattern during a given time of day, such as morning
    • Away from the sun
    • Where the foreground and background are safest

    • Safely unload the firearm and put the safety in the “on” position.
