To me they seem more trouble then they are worth, and not very flexible/versatile in how you use them. I just like to make my own blinds. On my lease, I have a bunch of evergreens, and my land owner said I can cut all I want. Cut a few braches takes no time, and with a muddy ground, setting up a blind takes no time, just stick in the mud, and it will stay green all winter...



I duck behind a branch and I’m good, all I need..



Cattle panel can also provide a little more structure, and pretty easy set-up, and easy to move. Pic below I got cattle panel in the back you cannot see. Next season I will have everygreen blinds like this all over my lease.

I think I would rather build a permanent blind or use a layout. Might be good if you were taking a child hunting and needed to stay arm's length from them.

Opening day last year I strung a camo net between two cottonwood trees and piled brush in front.

Thanks for the opinions. I wish I had a good lease to build something that didnt have to be put up and taken down every hunt. Just looking for something I can take to the hunt site setup and remove. I think I will try it out, 350.00 is high but at the same time we all pay 80.00 for 12 plastic decoys so in relevance its about the same. Hell a lot of people spend 150 on a waterfowl coat.

Layout blind is best for that. How hard is it to set up, and pack that thing? I would never buy something like that, but that is just me. If you do go with it, let us know how you like it. I just have never seen anyone really use anything like that.
