I use several of these and they work great but we leave them out all season. if u can't leave it out your going to have to brush it real good or the deer will probably be real skidding around it.

Save yourself some money. Get a Cabelas pop up. Cheaper and i like them better than the DB.

If you donít brush them in or set up way before you hunt the deer will run for the hills. This has been my experience

Ghillie suit is another option. You'd have to trim up the arm/chest area so as not to catch the string, but a lot of trad guys use them.

They are portable. but not really useful for quick sets, unless you find a spot that already has good natural cover & shade with room for the blind inside of it.

Barronett Big Mike XT is the one I recommend.

Public walk in sets just pile some brush to sit in. I don't climb trees, so I either hunt in a blind, or brush.

I have a cabelas 3 man pop up and it's plenty of room. Would like a little bigger. But I'm a 31" draw and no issues shooting out of it
