Pop-Up Blinds???

Postby arodgers21 » Sun Nov 16, 2008 12:35 pm

I am looking to purchase a pop-up blind.  Curious though, since they are so warm especially for bow hunting in Texas, does anyone ever have trouble w/ critters getting in, (i.e. snakes, scorpions, etc.)?  I also am curious do people that own pop up blinds use them year round or seasonally. I am curious if people are starting to swing toward the pop up blind due to versatility rather than a fixed permanent stand that is where it is?  Any response or insight would be greatly appreciated, and will definetley help me make a good decision.  Last question, which pop-up would you personally recommend?

I have a couple of pop ups the simple dog house has no floor, sets up very easily, and they are cheap (40-50) the ameristep reverible is my main blind not real cheap but large enough for two guys easily, full floor, two camo patterns (I have the mobu/ shaddowgrass) which means more adaptable, . very nice blind. sets up easily and quietly, And I do not leave either out very long. If I was to leave one long term, it would be the cheaper one. They are easy to steal. I use a cable and padlock to a tree for a couple of days use on public lands. On private lands with restricted access, I would be happier leaving set up, but I would still lock it off to a tree. I would suggest you mark any gear that you intend to leave on site anywhere. I would also check e-bay for blinds, they have quite alot of them. One pic has a current Manard's ad flyer. Very cheap pop up. I would leave one of these without worring adout it.

The only real difference between a good tracker and a bad tracker is observation. All the same data is present for both. The rest is understanding what you are seeing.
