Campcook made one last year from scratch. Wooden frame and some mesh. He added some shooting windows and a door. Threaded some cut grass and CRP through the mesh and If you didn't know it was a blind you'd definitely think it was a bale, especially from a distance.
The kill is the satisfying, indeed essential, conclusion to a successful hunt. But, I take no pleasure in the act itself. One does not hunt in order to kill, but kills in order to have hunted. Then why do I hunt? I hunt for the same reason my well-fed cat hunts...because I must, because it is in the blood, because I am the decendent of a thousand generations of hunters. I hunt because I am a hunter.- Finn Aagard

I bought a few of the double bull hay bale blinds a couple years ago.  The mesh panel would be similar to hog panel fencing.  Use some hay bale mesh to hold the hay onto the blind.  Also suggest wrapping the panel with black plastic or a tarp and use lots of zip ties.

Better reread the new restrictions, "Bait, in this case, includes grain, seed, mineral, salt, fruit, vegetable nut, hay or any other natural or manufactured food placed by an individual." No 'hay bale' blinds allowed in certain parts of the state this season. Hopefully legislators will react to this nonsense and STOP THE MADNESS!!!
