 Has anyone tried the shoot thru blinds that are on the market? The mosquito's around here this year are big enough to throw a saddle on. I'm thinking a bug free blind wouldn't be too bad.

I have with a gun but not a bow. Tip... Use the standard open window popup blinds and use a thernacell inside. it keeps the bugs out great....

I'll second that.  You can not go wrong with a thermocell.  Less than 25.00 and will be well worth it.

 It's funny you mentioned the thermocell. My father in law just got that for my birthday this year. I just haven't tried it yet.

This is the way I hunt.  Open window w/therma cell inside.  May have a skeeter come thru, but he won't stay long.

IF YOU SHOOT A FIXED BROADHEAD YOU WILL BE FINE, BUT I SHOT A OPEN ON IMPACT AND IT MAKES THEM OPEN

I've shot NAP spitfire expandables thru the netting with no problems.  Took a turkey at 25yds this spring and the arrow flew like a dart.  Did a bunch of practice shots thru the netting also at a target with no problems.  Maybe i just got lucky.

I won a therma-cell in a contest. It came with a belt pouch to carry it. It works!

I have a double bull blind. I shoot Rage BHs and you cant shoot out the net with them. But I have some hunting friend that cut slits in the net so they can. I use mine for turkey hunting and not much deer hunting. But like alot of them said get a thermacell they are nice.
