Default help with camo blind and idea how improve on them?

I was out over the weekend doing some bow hunting in n.y.s.
I have a ground blind set up over a well used trail and for the last few hunts I did not see a deer or bear.
I was out on Monday Morning in the ground blind and about 8;30 AM I hear a large blue bird behind me sound it like some one was hammering a nail into the tree,I did look to the rear and here he was beating on the tree bark:
I must of watch him for a least 2 to 3 min: and when I turned my head back to the shooting window there is a small basket 4 pointer looking into the blind window about 13 Ft. from me.I was shock he did approch the blind on a blind spot of the corner between the windows I never heard or seen him comming.I am sitting there bow in hand and tried to lean away from the window and i started to draw the bow back NO WAY he heard my elbow scuff the rear of the blind and it was all over.The blind works outstanding too bad i did not see him comming otherwise a 5 to 6 yard shot.
I think the better idea is not to wear camo but go with black jacket and hat also try to finda black camo net.I also made another mistake I only had one shooting down and I know they only travel down the main trail in front of the blind.The buck went back about 25 yards and loop around the side I did not have the side blind down enough for the shot.I also have another blind that I wanted to set up and take the other blind down but got lazy and I paid for it.The other blind has a larger inside set up 77" square compared to the 65 " that I had on the trail.

the plastic screen you use on house windows works pretty good just make sure its not metal.

also you can use the netting from wallmart that they sell as portable blinds
