No, but Cabelas has a pack in chair with a small blind over the top that I can think of several places it may work.

Layout blinds are more common, but in the west half of the state there are usually much more brush and trees to work with.

Ameristep makes a hay bale blind that folds up like a pop up blind but opens on the top for shooting. Actually looks pretty cool but it is kinda small. I think it can fit 2 guys though.

I'll be using a make-shift blind out of fiberglass electric fence posts and a 5x25' feet of camo fabric.  I'll know on the duck opener how well this works out.  It is lightweight and less than 5 lbs total.

I built one out of irrigation pipe last year. Brakes down into pieces and straps to the pack. Fits two guys and dog comfortably

Get a tanglefree panel blind.  It works good.  :tup:

How do you like it? I was thinking about picking a couple up but a lot of my spots are hikes longer than a mile. Not sure how I would be able to grab a couple of these to pack with my 4-5 dozen decoys.
