new floating duck blind

Postby young pup » Tue Apr 26, 2011 9:57 pm

I was just wondering if anyone had tried out the new put hut duck blinds, seems like a great idea for hunting shallow open water, looking for opinions and if anyone knows how much they are, thanks! and if anyone is interested in looking into one here is the website. http://puthutduckblinds.com/ :welcome:

Great blind just wish i would have thought of it first. The guys that developed this blind live close and both seem like real stand up guys with a great product. I'll be trying mine out next season and i think they lowered the original asking price a little also :beer:

yeah i was reading my new DU magazine yesterday and saw a blurb about that thing in the new gear section. I checked out the website and it does look like something that would work well. Wish they would put the price up though! I see no price on the website which means to me that they want too much for it...

Those bad Boys are F-Ing Sweeeet!!! It appears that there is currently a problem with their site, but here is the link to their YouTube channel where you can see the set up a hunting video. I'd have to see one up close, but I have to say that these have me rethinking my needs for a big, burly, pimped out boat blind... :huh:

$140 about the same as a decent laydown. Also comes with legs and spring operated top. No need to built any blinds for the three small private ponds i'll be hunting this fall :thumbsup:

I own one. I really like it. The overall frame is a bit wobbly. Also the legs provided are really nice, but I can't seem to stick them in the mud deep enough (not soft enough mud and the mud stopping plate does not allow me to push it deeper in the ground). This causes the legs to fall over by themselves. I am planning on modifying the legs or fixing it up somehow to work. It cost a lot to ship it to California though, but I think it will be worth it.

If you set it up right you might be able to squeeze two guys inside.... Looking forward to trying it this fall. Here is a picture of it with some fake grass and a few natural tulies (the fake grass stands out a bit too much for my liking, but it will be able to blend in well) Those are some FUD decoys in front of it.

My thoughts exactly, it's an easy concept to assemble your own. Although not everybody want's too so I'm sure they will do fine selling this product

ebay has one for 219 plus 35 for shipping. I have been looking at them. They are pretty sweet.
