Tomb's Coffin Tips
  1. Put the coffin where you can have your off shoulder pointing at the landing zone of your decoy spread.
  2. Two small pieces of plywood cut for a bottom and backrest will keep you more comfortable in the coffin. Three 20" lengths of 1"X 2"s under the bottom board will keep you out of any water that gets in to the coffin.
  3. Coffins can be dug into the soil of a cornfield or the sand of a sandbar to keep you dry and give you a low profile.
  4. Putting an olive drab army surplus foam rubber sleeping bag mat under you will make the coffin even more comfortable.
  5. A fanny pack turned to the front with your shells handy will keep you from having to fumble through your pockets to find the next load.
  6. Camo tape on your shotgun and a facemask and gloves will almost totally conceal you from birds overhead.
  7. Most coffins can be towed behind a boat at slow to modest speeds.
  8. Two dozen decoys will easily fit in a coffin and more can be loaded if you use decoy bags and several tarp straps to keep the bags from shifting.
  9. Some shooting practice while sitting before hunting from a coffin will help you bring home more birds.
