This blind has been "up" since June 24. Season starts exactly six weeks from today as well!! This spot has always been a good area, especially later in season..
I've done it both ways and for me brushed in seems to work best.It blends in pretty good. I will set my out in a week or so and probably not bother to brush it in. The deer will ignore it after a few days. I have done both ways and see no differences as long as they have time to get used to it. For same day setups I would brush in real good.
I've got couple more that are going up next Saturday, I hope! LOLNice looking set up highoctane, as always!
My blinds are going up Wednesday.
