10 Best Duck Blinds and Layouts for 2013

10 Best Duck Blinds and Layouts for 2013

We've all spent a day flagging and calling flock after flock, finally sucking a group in on gliding wings only to watch as they flare at the edge of the decoys. For a moment your pulse jumps, giving way to disappointment as you bemoan what could have been. Any number of variables might have caused such an unfortunate circumstance, including concealment.


These days, layouts and field blinds run the gamut from campfire sleeping bags to single-wide trailers — in Mossy Oak and Realtree, of course. With every passing season, it seems the ducks and geese become more wary of four mud-covered coffins in the middle of a decoy spread, so the layout must evolve. These blinds are on the cutting edge of innovation — the best duck blinds and layouts of 2013 — designed to keep the flocks coming in. But the scouting, digging in and brushing up — that's on you.
