What is the best small size blind bag for $35 dollars or less? Its not gonna get hunted. Just used to carry calls and tuning gear.

The Avery line is pretty decent, try a guide or finisher bag.

My advice would be to go as small as you can...whatever the size, you will always fill it. When you find yourself carrying an extra pair of everything...you know you've gone too big..
Avery is good

You nailed that!! My hunting blind bag is ridiculously heavy just because of the miscellaneous crap I have in there! I was thinking the finisher by Avery or one of the new banded or herters

If you have no plans on hunting it you might save some money buying a camera bag. Dimensions are about the same as blind bags and they normally have a ton of pockets and dividers for lens, SD cards, film cans, etc. Might allow you to organize even better than a blind bag

For calls, and spare parts (tuning supplies), how about a hard tackle box? Lots of nice, right-sized compartments, all right there before your eyes.

Get a 2.5 or 3 gallon bucket whatever those half size ones are. Put a different top on it and a inside organizer. Thats what I run. $15 bucks and its completely waterproof and doubles as a seat. Put an Avery sticker on it if you gotta have a name brand!

Go to enough D.U. and Delta banquets and you or your buddies should be able to win one. I have won enough of the Avery brand and a couple of Drakes that I have given several away to my son and his friends. The two smaller ones by Avery work nice for what you may need.

I have a Drake floating blind bag. It's great. I got the bigger size. I would'nt go to the smaller size.

I have a Cabela's LG blind bag but I also have one of these and love it to throw a few things in and go.

Looks good, waterproof spot for license, wallet, phone etc... It is small... three boxes of shells fills it up but only $20 and does the trick.
