    OK – this is a little odd in my book but I have to ask.

    Been looking for a new blind and read a review on one and the reviewer said he liked the blind and stayed in it all day.

    Dug a hole inside the blind and dropped a bucket in the hole to use as a toilet. I assume the bucket had a GOOD lid.
    First time I’ve heard of that method.

    Anybody else do that???

    Nope..only way I would consider that is for rifle hunting, where you can shoot longer distances!

    Ok, I think I figured out the hole for the bucket thing –  the bucket is lowered into the hole to conserve space in the blind  and the lid is level with the ground so you don’t loose floor space  {#emotions_dlg.mathews_laughing}

    Now if you fill the bucket with that ‘gel’ stuff for porta-potty’s it shouldn’t stink too bad LOL.

    Now all is left is to put in a cot and hot solar shower!

    When I was out in Colorado pronghorn hunting the outfitter said it’s all day hunt till you get your trophy. He gave each hunter roll of teepee and some plastic bags for the day and a large bottle. The damp odor scent wipes by Dead Down Wind I took with me for this purpose. Tie off the bag good or double bag it and your scent is contained. Bottle up the liquids and cap it off. No weight or bucket to carry and no mess later on. {#emotions_dlg.mathews_batting_eyes}

    Been there done that Mark….{#emotions_dlg.mathews_doah}

    Usually a nice little camp shovel for a quick hole in the ground in a spot close to but outside the blind works great. Along with a tree/small hill, when someone else is in the blind solves the problem. But those flat land eastern Oregon Antelope/Deer hunts when I am staking out a water hole or trail = no trees and not much for hills. So, your explained method is my option 2…..for number 2…..{#emotions_dlg.mathews_embarassed}

    Around here the shovel is the best deal. Out there in the eastern part of Colorado it’s as flat as Kansas where we were water hole blind hunting. The dirt is either cement like or sandy and no where to hide. The outfitter had worked it all worked out so I adapted to his game plan. {#emotions_dlg.mathews_big_smile}
