A blind to open eyes

New portable camouflage fills an old need for duck hunters

Waterfowlers frustrated in the past by dependence on stationary blinds, this year can look forward to an easy and ingenious out—camouflage that moves. Porta Co. of Canton, Mass. is marketing a collapsible Packet Blind ($54.50), small enough to carry in a car trunk but roomy enough for ample shooting freedom. Used with Porta's canvas duck boat ($98.50), the blind can also be paddled to wherever the birds are flocking.
