I'll be going to Missouri this november and won't have time to set up a tree stand.........I'm planning on getting a ground blind...the ones I've looked at have shoot through windows? won't that deflect your arrow?......I'd like to get a decent blind but I don't want to spend a fortune......is there a decent blind out there at a resonable price? $100.00 or so.

Not sure about the price you're looking for, but I'm sure there are....I'm taking two (2) DoubleBull T2's with me on my hunt and plan on putting them to use along with a treestand....

Even if you didn't have a DB, they have a real good DVD about ground blind set-up for deer.....

I use a DB T-5. I hunted Turkeys, Mule Deer, and Whitetail Deer out of them. I'll tell you that Whitetails are the spookiest of all three. The deer knew the blind was something new in their living room. My suggestion. Brush it in real good. My experience with the shoot through screens is if it's a close shot it will have no noticeable effect on the arrow. Can't tell you what effect it will have on a long shot. With the whitetails I wouldn't hunt them without the screens. I can't recommend any other blinds. The DB is the only one I've owned. My

I had an el cheapo one year for whitetail hunting (i dont remember the brand). I couldnt stand it beyond 2hrs into the first hunt. The thing had probably 8 zippers on it, and with the slightest wind, they would jingle. The fabric made a flapping noise also. Maybe take these features into consideration when making your choice.

I use a pop-up ground blind for Turkey only, It was a Home brew project, cost me about $50 to make, it came out great, but i wouldn't make one again.

I have an Ameristep TSC,(total sent control),it has shoot through screen's,and of there are 3 port hole's,1' x 18" or so,and they are in the center of 3 larger window's,that at 20" x 4',both size's have zipper's,and arent to bad for noise.The door is a very good size,when opened it is 4'x5' or so,big enough for even wheelchair access.For sent control,the larger screen's,have a clear plastic,on one side,to help keep in your sent.They are all attached,with velcro.I have used it in Washington St,but only had a doe & fawn come by.They are around $150.00 or so.

Thanx for all the info........I'll be hunting white tail but from my past experiance these deer are not too spooky....I've even drove a jeep out into the pasture and the deer still came out feeding...just not close enough for a bow.......this is what I was looking at but I think I'll check around a bit more.

make sure you have seen in person the model you choose before ordering, the dimensions are deceiving when you are in one, also if you are able to leave it there a few days, or a week, and brush it in, they won't notice it

The area I'll be hunting is a pasture 1/4 mile wide and 3/4 miles long......it's surrounded by tree's and all the leaves have fallen making a stalk impossible.......there's a group of trees where the deer usually come out within 30 yards that I can set the blind in...(at least the last couple time I was there)....I plan on setting it up and then watching it a day or so and see if it changes anything.......as I said these deer aren't too spooked.......this is the first buck I've shot there and since then some monsters have been taken.....they seem to get bigger every year.

Hey BD, not sure where you are hunting in MO, but if it is close to Liberty, MO go to Rogers Sporting Goods and get a blind. They have great prices. Check it out rogerssportinggoods.com. I don't know if they will ship but you could ask.

Bird:

You need to add one of these Gyllie kits to your blind setup. It looks funny but it really helps out a lot. I got my dad one for his Ameristep during Turkey season. He had a hen come up to the blind and start pecking on 3D kit. Something to consider.

You guys are merciless! What I refer to as a "half blind" is a three sextion blind that sits in front of you. It is maybe a little wider than a large sun reflector that you put in your car. It is low enough to see over but still hides most of your hand & foot movement. If you set by a Juniper tree or such, you can almost surround yourself with a combination of tree and blind.

So far I've only used it for calling coyotes, and it does a great job plus is lite and packable.
