After you put up the house could you plant some honeysuckle around it and let it grow up the sides for camo? Let it grow all summer and then when season is about to start come in and cut the vines away from the windows. Just a thought.

Probably could. Mine sets out in the wide open and is tan in color and I only had it out for 10 days before season last year and had deer walk right by me. I didn't get a chance to brush it in and probably won't worry about it.

I don't see why that wouldn't work for you.

Keep in mind that the honeysuckle will attract various bees/wasps during the warmer months, which might also encourage them to nest inside. If you plant on any early season hunting out of it, you might want to reconsider.

In general, the idea of using a vine as camo seems pretty good, but I've never tried it. Not sure if the "creepers" sticking into the wood would cause it to degrade faster over time or not.

Old artificial Christmas tree limbs work great for brushing one in.

We have done this several times too and it works. After about 3/4 years of leaving it out all year they will turn blue.

Then would you have to count on a few more days before the deer get used to the smell or is it gone in a couple of days?
