save up if you have to. The only blind i'd consider buying would be a Cabela's elite or ultimate, or a Roger's toughman.

Check out the classifieds forum people are selling them all the time. However I agree with the Cabelas Elite never seen or used a Rogers but their other products are good.

I like my power hunter it low profile and you can move your head. I would mind getting a GHG Ground Force, I like the back back carry and ecc you can buy for the blind.

If your life this far has been laying on your back in a field any blind is going to seem like a vast improvement. It can be somewhat of a personal choice. Some people have issues with certain blinds others don't.

Rogers 89$ blind...... 10 second its up, and it weighs nothing. No frills kinda of blind, so it doesn't have cup holders/ heated spring loaded seats but you don't really care about that if your hammering birds, which you'll probably do cause you'll have more time to brush it up.

I will second the fast shipping! I live 2 hours from them and most times my orders are here the next day.

Here is one i have cheap and the LOWEST PROFILE blind you can buy, no frame. We could hide in cut beans in canada with half the effort of other blinds. Not as comfortable but gets the job done.

The only time i layout hunt is in Canada, while there 3 guides said they were buying these for clients as they hide easier and flare less.

roger's has the LP blind that is about the same thing for $90.

my little bro has the Rogers LP and it does hide very easy but its a tad smaller and not ment for being the most comfortable.

I picked up a couple LP's for hunting in pea fields/short stubble. Very low profile. But ya, not meant for long hunts comfort-wise.

My dad and friends use GHG groundforces. I hate them. They are so high that its extrmely hard to get hidden. Yes they are very comftorable but thats not what were out there for. I personally own a powerhunter and they are faily low profile. But im looking for something even lower to switch to. What is the lowest profile blind they make? Again idc about confort. Most of the farmers here cut there fields LOW so i need it!

I kind of in the same boat you are. With the holidays approaching and my wallet containing very little, we'eve been improvising until I can afford to purchase a nice one (no need to take short cuts, itll bite you in the end). This past weekend, me and a couple buddies grabbed some old beach lounge chairs and used them as our supoort. After that, simply just draped some burlap over us and a little cover. Work pretty well, extremely comfortable the entire hunt, and the ducks didnt seem to mind it too much. shot 24 ring necks

GHG Ground Forces hide great. I use an Avery Finisher which is hard to hide but we hunt fencelines most of the time. Avery makes great layout blinds too. If the power hunter is low enough for u ur gonna need to really do some searching. Also Avery KW-1 or the Field Khaki color just disappears with less stubble than a blind using Max-4 camo IMO.
