Avery field blinds

Postby Wild Wings 1 » Thu Dec 29, 2005 4:43 pm

I hunt in Arkansas over a bunch of flooded rice, bean, etc. fields. I was wondering if any one has had better success with one of these rather than the Unipits and coffin blinds I've been using. They stick out like a sore thumb even after you camo the hell out of them. I've tried digging them in(would not suggest this to my worst enemy!) covering them with mud, etc. and they still have several spots that will stick out. They are a pain to pull out in a four-wheeler, put in a truck, shot out of and they're just straight up cumbersome! I hear great things about the Avery blinds (Powerhunter, Finisher, etc) and I'm somewhat on a budget. I wonder how they do in say 2-3 in water and SERIOUS mud. Any suggestions or good experience with these or any ideas with anything else?

They are NOT made for water or serious mud.

But nk Final Approach make a blind called the Air controller. Bascially it has waterproof floor and up the sides a ways. http://www.kolpin.com/product/fibl01.asp

I think they would do ok in water... I dunno though i have an Avery Powerhunter i got for Christmas and have yet to try it out. But it folds into a backpack which is great.

The only way they would be good for the water would be with the neotub you can buy for the finisher i think. Not to sure which ones they are made for but with it you can hunt in like 8 inches of water i think.
