Has anyone ever hunted geese out of a deer blind like double-bull?
Just curious... I was looking for options, and have a deer blind.

Id imagine the ability to swing your gun for the shot would be pretty difficult, especially not knowing where exactly the birds will be at the time of the shot or where they may flare.

I dont see why not open up the window so you can swing the gun and brush in with surrounding vegetation

 Sounds doable but not a good set up if birds are not in the zone. Not sure of the situation. But if you are looking for portable. I have made several portables A frames out of  8 ft 1x3 furring strips, 6"x 6" plywood strips in the corners for stability. Four panels attached in the corners with 1/4 x20 bolts and wing nuts. Small piece of aluminum angle iron. I could set it up by myself in about 5 to 7 minutes move in and out of fields in back of pick up. 3 hunters could hunt comfortable, 4 if needed.

Thanks guys - I know it would be pretty limiting.

Thanks for the suggestion Basser. I (with help from a couple of friends) just made a ten-foot blind out of 2X4 lumber and can carry it around the farm with the tractor - it weighs about 300lb. Has pressure treated lumber "feet".

I like the idea you have of being able to break it down. What do you use for camo material?

I brushed in my blind with some tall grasses I had growing around the propane tank and cedar boughs.

Wind proof wrap. Turkey wire. Then wire tie grass or cedar. I liked cedar best. Tend to hold up better over the,season. And with a frames they can see in from above. So I toss a couple extras on top being support by front and back standing cover. Throw off when coming out to shoot. I wore out my last one about 2 years ago. Plan on make 1 or 2 more this coming year. If I think of it I will post pictures. I like my roofs and bench seat. But mobility sometime wins out.

Here is a couple pics of a framed we use made out of 2x2's. Can easily be separated down with a couple screws for moving around. We use switch grass and cedar or Leyland cypress. Leyland's don't drop needles like cedars do and get all down your neck

Thanks for the suggestions and pics guys! I should probably plant some grass like that to have around.
This time of  year that is the color of the fields... not cedar green.

FYI , we have a A frame blind that sits in a cut soybean field and we have used ever greens and Christmas trees for the last 5 years with great success so I don’t believe that would be an issue.

I have a couple neighbors who have ornamental grass. I bring a trailer to their house when they cut it. drop off trailer 
 come back in a day or so to pick up. Bound and store in dry place  for the following year. I also use cedar and Leyland for cover. I have no issue with cedar or Leyland as cover.

The great thing about a home-built blind put together with screws is that it's easy to change.
I'm already thinking about a hinged "flop-down" front (I've hunted one of these in the past).
I figure a 10ftX16-inch panel would be about right.
A small roof to get out of the weather would also be nice.
