I would like to know, too.  I had a doghouse blind once, used for deer a couple of years, but it got stolen before I had a chance to try it out on turkeys.

Ameristep has some good blinds that are a little less expensive, but the DoubleBull is hard to beat.  Anything with shoot-through mesh on the windows is great, but don't use mechanical or expandable broadheads!
They're ALL trophies...it's just that some are bigger than others!

Sounds like  the double bull has it. Good point about not using mechanical broadheads through the mesh. Thanks all,

I also have a single chair blind...one of the older ones...I think the newer ones have a tad more room...but it still works great for me....

Any kind will work just sit in it before purchase and make sure you have enough room to move around with the equipment you will be using.Most stores will have some blinds set up for this reason.
