big guy looking for right layout blind

Postby SUTHERNDUCKHUNTER » Fri Oct 05, 2012 8:05 am

What layout blinds do you bigger guys recommend? I'm 6'2 280 with a wide upper body. Alot of the reviews I've read are good but some of the bigger guys say they are a little restricted around their upper bodies. Ive been looking at a few different ones but Cant spend money for the top dollar ones so any insight would be great!

The bigger the blind, the more expensive the seem to run. I would look for a used avery migrator or M2, or a fa pro guide xl.

I bought myself a Migrator off of Craigslist for $175 and LOVE IT.

I am about the same size, 6'1" 275#. I love the amount of room I have.

The only downfall, is that it doesn't fold up quite as nice as the others out there. But, being bigger you shouldn't have a problem hauling it around out there. Gotta take some bad, with a LOT of good.

FA Pro Guide XL for sure, coming from a big guy (6'7" @ 340 pounds) I have plenty room. Can fit my dog at my feet, blind bag, gun case and my rain gear no problem. Hope this helped.

Rogers Goosebuster XL or Tanglefree Dead Zone. Lot's of room, nice rounded profile and hide better than alot of bigger blinds we big guys are stuck using. I have one and bought the regular sized Goosebuster and I fit in it almost as well as I doo the XL. I'm 6', 3" tall and run about 290 so yeah...I need a little bigger blind than your average field hunter! :beer:
