Rogers Blinds.....

Postby gandergunner » Sun Jan 20, 2013 5:52 pm

My brother is new to goose hunting and he has been using a old style ghg ground force blind and that thing is huge, and we were wondering has anyone tried this blind,

I personally own a newer ground force and its ok, and my buddy hunts with a power hunter is really low. My brother is looking for a open door styel compared to the flip top like a power hunter. I no some gusy who have the old final approach x lander(i think thats the name) but they say the new x lander2 is junk.....so any oppinions? Thanks

By the way, we are looking for a super low blind....the rogers is very low and hi is skinny enough to fit in it. I am a big guy so i cant use one of the smaller blinds.....appreciate your help!

I dig the powerhunter. its good for guys who are calling or new to hunting and like to look at the birds as they work aall around you(which is really nice to do), cause you can afford to move your head a little in the blind without getting busted. plus its really low profile, and sitting up with that flap over your head isnt as hard as you would think.

the only downfall to it is that its not very comfortable, its hard to take a nap in on a slow day lol. But I would rather get by not being able to go to sleep and kill birds then get busted in a higher profile blind while napping lol.

I have the rogers goosebuster regular verion not the xl version. I really enjoy the blind and it's got plenty of room for me 6'2'' 245lbs.
I'm against picketing, but I don't know how to show it.

I have a Goosebuster and love it. It is lower than most blinds, costs half as much, and works just fine! I have been using three years now with no issues or signs of wear. I try to protect it though by placing an old Army PT mat under my blind when I hunt. One, it protects the floor of my blind. Two, it gives an extra layer of insulation between me and the ground.

The goosbusters came out TWO years ago...I know this because I ordered the one of very first ones from Fred when they came out.

Here is a pic of my GB XL on the fringe of a corn field. Had to set up there because the birds were all landing in a 5 acre open spot behind me and were then bouncing up into the corn after they were comfortable in the grass for a while. I'd say it hides well enough...wouldn't you? The birds that set in the deeks at less than 15 yards apparently couldn't see it either. :biggrin:
