    How to set up a hide

    Hides, or blinds as they’re known in the United States, come in a range of shapes, sizes and camouflage patterns to match the surroundings. Manufactured from lightweight material, standard ‘pop-up’ hides pack down into small bags and are easy to transport.

    Good quality hides offer multiple windows, each of which is covered by scrim netting so that you can see out, but animals can’t see in. The hides usually include a slit underneath the main window, which can be use to  push a tripod leg through, or to get an interesting low-level shot.
