Im assuming pre-set private?
If so, i would recommend any brand of the new see-through blinds. I got to sit in one last year, and HOLY COWÖ. So cool.

If you are wanting something more mobile or for public, i would just get a couple of good ghillie suits. 2 would be about the same cost as a good blind, and they are just as effective, honestly.

My ghillie is all torn up from years of ozone and lots of thorny brush snagging it, so iím about to buy one too at the end of the season.

Primos Double Bull, Rhino and Redneck soft sided blind would have to be one of my choices, wish I could have made it to one of the TTHA shows to pick up one of the Redneck blinds.

I use a Primos Double Bull. Fits two easily if using gun or compound. I wouldnít be able to fit two when using my longbow or recurve.

Those 180 degree pop ups look interesting. Think they’re called “see-through” blinds. Or something like

The Double Bull Double Wide Deluxe are great blinds. I also have a Xenek(sponsor here) and it is great as well. Might check with them as a month or so ago they were selling some discounted because of nearly unoticeable blemishes.

I recently got a couple of the Xenek Sniper blinds and am really impressed especially with the window setup. Ironically they are sale today on Camofire for half price. Whatever you get make sure it's material thickness is a minimum 300 deneer and treat with a UV and water proof agent as soon as you can. I've got a couple of temp blinds made of a 20' cattle panel wrapped with a tarp that work really wall. I use these an areas where cattle are as they can be quite destructive at times. Deer usually get adjusted to a new blind in a few days but I'd give them atleast a week if you can as they'll be eyeing it pretty hard and if they pickup on you inside might spook them off the area for awhile.

I have a double bull, and I've been really disappointed in it. All the rubber/plastic hooks that hold the windows up have broken (most without even being used). I have to use gear ties to keep all my windows shut up now.

Atwoods has some new brand I have never heard of called Duke & Boone or something like that. Anyhow I bought a 3 person hub blind for like $60 bucks. Plenty of room... probably not the best for a bow blnd as the windows are horizontal V's but they are well worth the price especially in a quick pinch.

Hunted out of these up in Canada. Outstanding ground blind. The thing I liked was the windows are magnetic and silent opening and closing.

Barronette Ox 5. And they make a Double Ox as well I believe. Set it up and spray it down with anti u v water proof spray and your good to go. Had it for two years now. Pop ups are like gun safes. Buy bigger than you need.

Thanks for the feedback - yes, there were some on sale on Camofire a while back - these were blinds with cosmetic blemishes.

We currently have Sniper and Ascent blinds with blemishes on our site. We have priced these to move them and get them out of the warehouse ASAP. If you're OK with some blemishes (please read in product description), you can save $200 on each blind.

https://huntxenek.com/shop/

Snipers with blems are nearly 60% off.
Ascents with blems are over 40% off
