Ground blind
« on: August 05, 2022, 02:55:10 pm »
Does anyone have a recommendation for a manufactured blind? Iím looking for something to take into public land to quickly set up and take down, and something I can draw my bow in or behind. I was considering just sitting on a small chair or bucket with a camo net setup in front of me but if someone knows of or uses a decent blind brand that just pops up I would pay for the convenience of that. I have brush blinds set up on my property and prefer that to manufactured but need something quick n easy for state land (plus they have rules about cutting brush). I would go with a climber stand but Iím not comfortable in a tree

Whitetails are hard to trick with pop-up blinds. They notice any little changes to their environment especially on public land that gets a lot of pressure. Unless it's brushed in it sticks out like a sore thumb to whitetails. With that said I know a few guys that have had success with Hidden Hunter Blinds. They're not cheap and I'm not sure if they're still being manufactured. Blinds with a flat-type roof seem to alert deer quicker so it's important to try and somehow brush in the roofline. Even some fake branches from a craft store pinned to the roof can help.
    If you ask me I think you'd have better success sitting still in a "comfortable" chair with a ghillie suit. If you're still and get the wind right a ghillie works great. Much better than a pop-up unless the pop-up is in place for at least a week or two and brushed in. I use a homemade ghillie and a Redneck Blind chair and have had deer as close as a few yards that never knew I was there. Getting off a shot is a totally different obstacle. Good luck. I hope whatever you choose to do brings you success.
