Power Hunter Lid

Postby harvey1b » Fri Nov 17, 2006 7:22 am

I have the Avery Power Hunter layout blind and am thinking about taking the lid off it, reason being that I loose sight of the birds at times when they are circling, especially ducks. Also it seems to get in the way more than it helps.

Has anyone else taken the lid of their Power Hunter?

I talked to the Avery guys about it last winter and they say they regularly take them off when filming and such.

Thanks! :thumbsup:

I can't say it wouldn't hurt. All camoed up, being still and either have a face mask or paint on...you should be ok.
You throw a pc of camoed burlap or something over you as well Harvey.

My buddy gets a little annoyed with the lack of vision with his power hunter also. He took the lid off and painted up his face, and honestly, it was a much better set-up. You couldn't tell where the blind stopped and his upper body began. I was really surprised at how well he and the blind blended together. Plus, losing the lid really helps lower the profile.

Well, I pulled the lid off the old Power Hunter and gave 'em a go this weekend. It worked great. I could see everything so much better and it did not seem to effect our success.

I'm the same way with the camo face mesh on my FA SUB. I really think the camo netting causes more problems they they help. I always leave the netting peeled back
I love my job, it fascinates me. I can sit and look at it for hours.
