Default Redneck Soft Side Blind

Does anyone have one of these blinds? Thinking about getting one and putting it up on a big platform (8x8).

Looks good but $450 is kinda high. If I was going to spend that much I would get a Krivoman or something similar.

I picked one up last year after I saw it at the Trophy Hunters Show and is was on sale. I put it on a platform and worked out great last season. Took it off its frame in April and will put it back on in September.

Have a hunter on our ranch that put one out and left it during the off-season.
I only made it two hunting seasons before the material fell apart.

Had a really really really hard time walking away from the deal they had at the TTHA show last weekend in ftworth. $330 for the blind plus a free second cover.

Decided to walk away and just build another box blind, figured theres no way the material would hold up

We currently have five in place at our lease outside of San Angelo. As stated above I would take the material off the frame in the off season. That's what we did this past season and they seem to hold up great. Easily enough room for two bow hunters and lightweight for setting up. I would recommend them for sure.

yes we have the ghilie version , to say its a pop up is not even close very heavy duty , thick cover , and easy to move it around . We have it on a 3.5 foot platform .

Plan to pull the cover off end of season. I think it fits a niche , much easier to move if needed . Much stronger than a pop up and I would not say its insulated per say but the cover alone must weigh 50 + lbs.


It blends in great . platform wise we had a metal stand that bent the legs , so cut it down added a sheet of marine plywood and ready to go

A member of our lease is out today and put his cover on. The base is also built by Redneck.

Here was mine set up from this past season on the homemade platform. I did not have the bow windows set up on it. And yes, that is my super secret deer attractant in the second pic.

What method did they use? I have built the diy stand at home. About to trailer it to the lease. Did they build the blind frame on the stand or put it on and then stand it all up......cover on or off......

Not understanding your logic here. The 8 ft platform and blind together is 850.00. A hardside stand is 3000.00 plus.

Build blind at home if you can first. Build platform at the lease. Set blind on platform and put windows where you want them. Then cover.

We built the platform then we lifted the blind frame up with 2 people on the ground and one pulling up from on top of the platform and set it on then secured it. They went up this weekend and put the cover on.

Man, that was fast. While you are at it, I'll take a stand just like it for my softside redneck blind.
