Default New Pop Up Blind from Sportsman's Guide

I been looking for a pop up blind for bow hunting, and decide to go with one from Sportman's Guide. The model is a Field General. I know some of the stuff at Sportsman's Guide can be cheaply made and I'm hoping this will last a few years. I pick it because of it size and bow windows. Anyway, I recieved it today and set it up and I'm quite happy with it (time will tell), but the design & size are just what I was looking for. 72"x72" footprint, 89" Hub to Hub, and 82" center height. The bow windows are 36" tall and start at 24" from ground. All the windows & mesh are on a silent sliding system and it makes it very easy to adjust or open. I thought I would share this info.It's getting about that time

Does it have a floor? I know some of the Academy pop ups have a floor.

Are you able to fully draw back in this while sitting in a chair? I bought one like this a little while back and I would have to kneel down otherwise the bow would hit the top. Also i would have to stick the arrow pretty far out of the blind.

No, there is all kind of room in this blind. You have over 7ft from hub to hub & almost 7ft height to draw in. The corner bow windows are 24" off the ground. It is the largest pop up blind, I have ever seen
