Trying to decide which bale blind to get for the ranch. A Redneck with a skid to allow some mobility seems to be the way to go, but I'm curious if the Muddy would be a better choice.

Thoughts?

I have a Redneck softside with the 3D guile cover and it looks a lot like a hay bale and there is tons more room. Never owned a Muddy, they might be good.

Korey

Thank you. Do you leave it up year round?

I have the muddy, but I just ordered a soft side redneck. The muddy had been good to me but I wanted vertical windows and the Redneck has free shipping and no tax plus 10 percent off! Shawn

I take the cover off in February and store it inside. It takes less that 15 minutes once you have the hang of it. I leave the frame in place.

Also, mobility isn't a big deal at all. I have learned to push it onto it's side and roll it where it needs to be moved to.

I have the redneck bale blind and really like it. Use it in Kansas and the deer pay it no attention. I take the cover off and store it after season. Be sure and anchor it with a couple of t post especially if you are in a windy area.

Thanks guys, I'll be getting the Redneck model with the metal skid and base. This will give me the mobility option if I need to move it from one place to another.

Thank you

I have both. Redneck I like much more for bowhunting. Muddy has a drop down roof window for waterfowl hunting.

have a muddy but just use it for waterfowl and dove hunting. its not wind proof the sliding windows work good but allow some wind in when closed. Mr heater takes care of the problem. in the rain it will drip around the drop down.

I know this isn't what you asked but you do realize you can put a flaming neon pink porta potty out in the field and the deer will get used it just as quickly as any kind of high dollar blind.

I have a Redneck blind. It has lots of room for two. I don't leave it out all year the weather here in WY will eventually destroy it. I think it's a great blind and keeps you dry.

He better have a short draw length, scrappy!

I have the Redneck bale blind, with some modifications. I left mine out all year, and it was, pretty much, toast by the second year. I got a new skin for the round part only, and made the flat end pieces out of plywood. Put a hinged door on it, plus put 3 Deerview vertical windows mounted on the plywood sides. It has a plywood floor as well, which is attached to 2 heavy wooden fence posts, for skids. It’s easy to move around with an atv. I haven’t ever staked it down yet, and haven’t had an issue with the wind blowing it over, but it’s in a somewhat secluded field.

I have 2 redneck blinds on skid platforms and take covers off after season Iowa winter's can be hard on them.

It helps to have an engineering degree to assemble the frame!

I have both. The Muddy is more bug proof and is insulated. A no brainer in my mind.

Cancel my comment above. I was talking about box blinds, not bale blinds.
