New blind!

My wife has decided to give turkey hunting a try. In Minnesota you have to apply and get drawn for a tag, but if not you can buy an archery tag over the counter and hunt in any zone with 50 or more tags per season.
I needed a blind. Checked my Cabelas account and saw a lot of points on there. Ended up getting the Dark Horse for not much! I like is so far. We shall see how it works on the birds in a few weeks. Archery season opens 5/17.

    Those double bulls are real nice. I like how quick you can set those up.

    They claim 7 seconds. Takes me more like 30. Maybe I am just being too careful with it, but I don't want any broken rods. I know they can be replaced, but still don't want to do it.

    I took the wife out to shoot out of the blind yesterday. She shot well at 25 yards and under. Her arrows flew well with both fixed blade and expandable heads. She shot a 3 blade Muzzy out to 45 yards with perfect flight. I guess I know what she is shooting this year for a head for deer. That Mission bow is one sweet hunting rig. Now all I have to do is get game in front of her.

    dcso, just remember not to fire expandables through the mesh. It will mess up the shot big time.

    This year I am shooting G5 Strikers, so it should not be a problem. My wife is shooting the old style 3 blade Muzzy. Also should not be a problem. Turkey hunting is another story, but I will shoot through the open windows for them.

    I'm saving up for this blind to deer and turkey hunt from. It has lots of room and height.

    I've hunted out of one of those too, okie. It's a BIG blind. Plenty of room to stand. The only thing I don't like about it are the fiberglass poles that you use to set it up inside. I've broke a set of them, and so has my buddy. I'd go ahead and order a spare set with it, if I were you.

    Well, even if the poles are not being used, it still stands pretty well--the ceiling is just lower than normal, and it isn't as sturdy in wind, but is still very huntable, and you can still stand in it. It's real big though--You really have to find a nice spot to "hide" it in.
