What layout blinds transport the easiest?

Postby jimposten » Fri Jan 15, 2010 1:02 pm

I like the looks of the migrator M2, but I was wondering are there any otheres that fold up this small and have back pack straps for easy transport?

My experience is good luck getting a blind to fold up like that when there full of corn stocks!!!! :mad:
Had a power hunter that folded in half like the M2 could never get it buckled after a hunt. Had to pull all the corn stocks out pain in the butt. I bought a new one the finisher that folds in half like it alot better it will fold up loaded with corn stocks!!!!

I have used the M2 covered in corn, and covered in hay, and never had a problem folding it. I always re-brush in so that is not a concern of mine... just wondering if there are any other layout blinds that fold and pack easy?

I have the cabela's ultimate and have had no problem with it folding. But it is not the smallest blind either.

Im not hunting out of corn with my power hunter but it has been loaded up with weeds and limbs and grass and folded up just fine and the backpack straps are so nice when you have to walk a distance like i do its overall a pretty good blind especially when it comes to transportation.

Powerhunter transports great. Also very low profile, and the Backpack straps on it feels like its not even there.

Another vote for the powerhunter if all you are is worried about transportation issues....That thing folds up small, Can get one of those and decoys in the trunk of my Corolla.

Avery Finisher folds up easy with everything in it, and has held up well where a FA SUB didn't. If you want one that tri-folds, ghg ground force and the M2 are nice. A friend got the M2 and we call it the Hilton because it's so roomy inside.

I use a Power Hunter and if you run your corn stalks crossways on the blind you can fold it up easily. I also have a lawn chair cushion that is sewn so that it has 3 sections that folds the same way the blind does, that I do not take out and I have not had any problems folding it. I use that durning the cold part of the season and it works great. Also a little thing that I found out was that if you also have a dog blind, I have the Avery one, that once you fold your blind you can slide it right into the top fold of the blind and carry it on your back. I hate making 2 trips to the truck so I have done this many times and it works great.
I do agree with i_willie12 taking the corn stalks out is a pain in the ***, but this method really works great.
Good luck.
