New Ground Blinds
« on: December 11, 2018, 06:43:44 PM »
Don't know about you guys but the Primos Surround-View Ground Blind netting these guys maybe onto something....I have been seeing them for a couple of years now and when the competition get an equal material the Ground Blind may take a turn for the ???......I will now admit that I have not sat in one, don't know if they will keep your sent in it, don't know how it will effect by the wind or rain...if at all.....

Does anybody have one of these??

But think the Ground Blind Industries is fixing to go though a big change......

I didn't know Primos picked up Double Bull - interesting.

I'm good on ground blinds & stands for the most part, but have been thinking seriously about grabbing one of those tripod stands.  Have a few different places where that would be handy, especially when the river is too high to hunt our normal areas.
One of God's greatest gifts to us is
the great outdoors - get out there
and enjoy it!

Haven't ex[eroenced this one, but what I watch for either zipper windows or velcro...the velcro makes awful noise when openng but the zippered windows are really have a softer sound....both my blinds took a terrible beating this year and broke some of the poles..not one of the ones I have have replacement poles so I had to get tentpoles and adjust and cut them but it worked I am all set for next year but I am goind to look at a bettter ground blind

Man time does fly...we've been on this lease 10 years and I remember back at the old lease when Primos bought out Double Bull blinds. They are a really nice blind and they were at one time $250 which we though was a little steep. That being said when hunting on the ground a good blind is a must to conceal movement.

Wonder how long a Ground Blind will last? If you take care of it. put it up in a dry place? The reason why I asked is that I have now 7 ground blinds, 4 of the Primos Gun Hunter (48x48x60) and two Primos Blind Luck (72x72x68), one is currently out now and the other has never been set up, not yet, but will be next year and a Herters blind that is (58x58x66) still in the box....

The little Gun Hunter Blind has served me well, except fo the fact that two of the four needs repair...one is the simple zipper is messed up and the other one it that a hub pole has broker through the material, not sure if can send it back to Primos and see what they can do with it......all four were purhased with 3 years and for the past 5 years have served me well.....

I'm sure the weather has something to do with it and many other factors, as well as the ground (would like to hear what you guys think)...have been thinking about putting a game trail camera up looking at the blind and see what come near it........

My overall game plan is to wait to see what other manufacturers come out with in 2019 to match the surround view from Primos......

wind really beats them up. heavy snow doesn't help either. i've had to replace the poles a few times. other than that, they are pretty tough

Just got a flyer in the mail today from Gander Outdoors. This blind is around $250 and you get a $50 Gander Outdoors gift card.

That's why I like my RedNeck blind at the end of the season all I have to do is use the zippers to remove the outer shell and store it for the next year .  ##$%#1118
