Types of Portable Blinds for Hunting
There is more than one type of portable duck hunting blind available to hunters. The most common type of portable ground blind is a blind that is meant to be laid out on the ground, also known as a “layout” blind. Some would say that it is similar to a sleeping bag in terms of design, but there’s a big difference. For one thing, the portable duck blind is constructed with more sturdy materials inside that help the blind act as a protective barrier between the hunter and the damp, muddy and sometimes unsanitary ground beneath him.
What Color is a Portable Duck Blind?

It may also be made from a solid, muted green print that blends in with certain types of vegetation. In any case, the colors and tones on a portable hunting blind are what deceives game birds into believing the hunter is not there.

What they need is portable deer blinds, which are designed specifically for shielding hunters from deer and other legally hunted mammals.
Alternatives to Layout Portable Duck Blinds
