Ground blinds
« on: January 20, 2008, 04:47:46 PM »
Anyone used the pop-up ground blinds for turkey hunting?  I usually just find a good spot and make my own natural ground blind with whatever is available, but this year, in addition to my 10 yr old son, my 9 yr son is joining us on his first turkey hunt in April.  I would like to find a reasonably priced ($100 or less) ground blind that me and the boys could be in so their movements are covered and I can be close to them for coaching.  I found one at Cabelas for $49 that would seem to work, and I've checked e-Bay some too.  Just curious if anyone has had any good experience with a particular brand/make.  Thanks. :dunno:

the only experience i have to share is if you plan on putting you and 2 kids inside, be sure to check the size of the blind. my buddy and i tried to turkey hunt out of 1 last year with him hunting with his bow and me calling for him an there was not enough room for me in there where he could still pull his i sat outside and called.

" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield

We purchased a dog house blind for the 2007 deer season. here is a couple of pictures. It is kind of small for more then two people we did have three in it one day, two in chairs and the third sat on a pack in the middle. I think it was $89.00 at Jerrys surplus in Everett.

When I pass, do not let my wife sell the guns for what I told her they cost.
