blind?

Postby puddlerjumper » Thu Jun 03, 2004 12:52 pm

hey, anybody know of a good, inexpensive field blind with vegetation straps on it that i can put grass in, ill be hunting in winter wheat, corn, stubble, and beans, everything you can think of, even using it beside ponds, it needs to be anywhere from 50 to 230 bucks, i want it to be low profile, and i need to stay dry/warm in it, ill be wearing gortex so i can hold off the cold for a while, but i need something that can hold its own, and is reliable, possibly an x-terminator from goose view, or a goose grabber from goose view, its like a cover or something, or maybe a powerhunter from avery, any suggestions are greatly appreciated

In my experience of using layout blinds for field hunting for the the last 5 seasons, I think Final Approach is still the Cadillac of the blinds out there.

I use an Avery Finisher. Really portable, easy to camo up, durable, and 'hunts' good. Probabaly costs $250.

All of Averys stuff is made in Communist China now a days... :pissed:

Average US manufacturing job payd $16 a hour, $2 in Mexico and 30 cents in China...

Keep US jobs here--buy American when possible :yes: :thumbsup: I have both, FA is better quality like I already mentioned. In all fairness I do not know where FA makes their blinds.

Avery finisher is good! Its packable and durable. The Eliminators are big except for the one.....what ever model. We have used the Avery with much success. One thing to keep in mind is which ever you get choose the shadow grass camo NOT the Max camo, its too dark and harder to hide
There is no problem that cannot be solved with the proper application of HIGH EXPLOSIVES!
