Funny I JUST saw the Outhouse on sale, I actually need another ground blind.
I did read once its a little tighter than you might like but suffice.
I actually liked the look of it too.

{Edit, I was refering to the OUTHOUSE not DOGHOUSE model}

I have a doghouse and its great for me and my kids (one at a time), but for archery....just BARELY suffice.
It has survived multiple cow tramplings (cept one of the poles) the last 2 years.
Think u can get them around $75 ish on occasion

I have the dog house and used it for several seasons, it works fine. :) I needed a second one and got the brickhouse, it is one the the hub style and like it much better. :D It is a little bigger but much easier to set up and take down. Till you get the nack of it that dog house is a real animal to fold up. :mrgreen:

I had the outhouse and it had very little room in it.Fine for gun hunting but not enough for bow hunting.I have the dog house and really like it.

I've not had good luck hunting out of my outhouse. It has very poor visibilty; I have to keep the front door propped open. I much prefer hunting out of the treestand about 100 yards away. I just located it there so it would be close to a couple of stands.

Now I HAVE thought about putting a lawn chair up on top of the roof and having a try like that. That outhouse overlooks a pretty nice spot where a lot of deer come through.

Why not just add a few sliding windows?

I've had one of each of the three Ameristep models. I used all of them 'til they completely rotted apart. The hub style model was the easiest to set up and take down; and most comfortable of the three. . I saw the doghouse at Walmart for $49.99 about a month ago.

I think like all things with the Primos name, their's are over priced.

See, now you have this project spiraling out of control. You put windows in and then the women will want to put up curtains. I'd much rather use the outhouse for what it was built for and then going back to my stand to hunt. You go mixing things too much and you wind up like this:
