  • Killer Weed vs. Mojo Ghillie Bundles

    #1
    Getting my first layout and was wanting to know what most guys use to brush their blind, the killer weed or mojo ghillie bundles. I am going to use alot of natural cover from each area I hunt, but want to get a little bit of stuff on there and be able to leave it on there. Any preference in the two or anything else?

    i like to use mud.







    seriously though; we hunt a lot of black fields due to the farmers chopping and ripping or chisel plowing right after combining; especially wheat stubble. also, we are starting to hunt more and more bean stubble, which leaves little natural cover, and a grassed up blind would look unnatural. i have yet to try the bundles of raffia grass or whatever, but i do like the idea of having some rigged up on clothes pins for hunting grassy water holes or something along those lines.

      I've heard different guys talk about getting "raffia" grass and then dying it. Where do you get it?

        any craft store should have it.

        I use RIT dye---a combination of colours.

            Raffia Grass

            Used it for years you can dye it paint it when i dye i used rit liquid and 5 gal bucket. You can get 5lbs from cabelas get the natural.To put it on your blind use medium binder clips & wire ties to hold it on the clip .Make your own it is a hell of a lot cheaper.I have green brown & natural.It last for ever & when it gets wet dry out fast. 5lbs cost 19.99 x shiping they some times have it on sale.5lbs will cover 2 blinds

                    soybeans in Maryland. there is def enough left over to cover a few blinds here though. i mean i would never use grass or weeds it would stick out like a soar thumb.... late season geese cannot resist it here on the eastern shore

                        I use quite a bit of Killerweed bundles on my blinds. I have them attached by using swivel plastic clips and just ziptie the KW onto those clips. Works well so I can change them or take them off if needed.

                        I do mud the bundles right after I make them to dull down the finish of the raffla right out of the box. Too shiny for me.

                          We hunt winter wheat down here in kansas and the killerweed is a lot brighter green the our wheat. so might depend where you hunt. If i was to do it over again, i would buy raffia grass and find a paint that is the most similar to the wheat or other crop in your area and paint the rafia grass that is unless you can use natural cover. natural cover is by far the best way to go.

                            Yeah - our KW Winter Wheat was so green it left blue dye after rain. We fixed it with some spray paint.

                              I bought 35lbs from Franks.I have 5-6 hanks left, 5 blinds covered in raffia: a couple bags as backup and most of my buddies have what they need.
                              I used Moss green wood dye,.
                              Winterwheat changes colors as it gets later in the season and I will change out some of the bright green to the yellow green walmarts and some craft stores will have what you need
                              Dont geet caught up in a brand,.. buy what matches the fields you hunt best or make it match your fields
