A NEW BLIND.
Permalink  
 


After getting a few seasons under my belt and paying attention to what I need in a blind and what I do not, I went to work on one that would fit all the needs I am aware of at this time.

This new blind concept had to meet a few criteria:

  • Had to come in under 50lbs.
  • Had to be compact.
  • Had to provide ample room for two shooters.
  • Had to be tall enough to provide cover for a standing shooter.

The finished product in pictures below came in at 49 lbs and is 56 inches tall.  I built it in 5 foot sections that fold in half helping with the compact problem.  Each panel has a base layer of burlap and then covered with camo netting, with paracord supporting the netting. This may put the Tanglefree blind out of commission.

Now you have a good blind ! The Tangle Free blind was never high enough in my humble opinion !

My partner is 6 feet tall same as me and he is standing in this photo.

Looking at your photos, and if I had a welding setup, I would tear my blind system down and rebuild it!  Very nicely done, Dale!!

Hey Dale,

 That frame will serve you well, fifty bucks and some time probably covered your cost. Post some photos of it in use, it'll look nice in the kill zone cam. I'll bet it doesn't put the Tanglefree completely out of commission though. Unless you can always drive right up to the blind site.

 We've overcome any limited height with brush/grass. When we have more than a couple hundred yards to walk in we take our three sided Ameristep Field Hunter hub blinds. Less than five lbs. and fits in a bag with a shoulder strap. See below photos.

 The Tanglefree panel, Tanglefree solo and the Ameristep Field Hunter all have their place. Any negatives they have can be overcome.

 You guys are a couple three weeks away from some good shooting, right? Get after 'em.

 Randy

Being able to stand was the goal.

Randy, I'd say a couple weeks from now we should be able to see just how the new blind works.
