Do you intend to leave them out for an extended period or carry them in and out ?

From: Lewis

On our property probably leave them a month or so depending on the season

If it were on my property I would look at one of the large Double Bull or Baronette blinds. My first choice though would be a permanent box blind on the ground.

Double Bull

I went through some blind choices last year... ended up with a Barronett Ox5. I don't feel that it is a completely weatherproof blind (think seams,etc.), but it is pretty heavy duty. I'm not much of a blind guy, but the window setup is pretty good. Zippers are loud, but seem well made. It is not a blind I would want to carry in and out, so it may be an option for you.

Last spring I purchased my first Muddy see through blind and used it for turkey and Antelope. It is heavier material than my other 5 blinds and made a BIG difference in the winds Antelope hunting, much more stable. Double bulls would be a good choice but a lot more money.

For a quick semi permanent blind I sometimes use a piece or two of cattle panel attached to some drive-in green fence posts. We zip tie some camo burlap to the panels. Take bolt cutters and clip out whatever window size you want.

Lewis…. If it’s something you’re considering leaving out for an extended period, take a look at CAGE blinds. They’re not a run n gun type of pop-up blind, but they are extremely heavy duty.

I only use my Ghost Blind any more unless it’s raining. Can routinely move without birds having a clue lol. But I only hunt public.

Here are some pics of one my daughter and I made. 1 piece of cattle panel, three small fence posts, some wire , plenty of zip ties and burlap. Need to double layer the burlap and I like some branches for texture. This has a major think green briar patch as the backing.
