Popup boat blinds are great tools for duck hunters looking to attract more ducks into shooting range, but there are some tricks that will maximize their hunting success.

Here are some tips from expert boat-blind hunters:

• Attach additional natural cover to the boat blind, but don't use it straight out of the box.

• Spray-paint blind grass green, brown and black shades

• Move with the ducks to new areas attracting ducks

• Always set up with the wind to your back

• Secure boat with spud poles or other method for safety

• Place natural top cover

• Use large decoy spreads

• Use motion decoys

• Build drive-in boat blinds

• Bring in fresh, natural cover on every hunt

• Store your boat blind in the up position
