Default Tent Blind Deal Alert

Just thought i would let yall know. Walmart has the Rhino blind for 88 bucks. I picked up two of them thinking they were probably small and junky. I was wrong. The are much more roomy than the regular Ameristep blind. Plenty room for two folks and room to draw a bow with no problem even with two folks in the stand.

All the windows are adjustable and have flaps like the old Double Bull stands. fabric is also heavier and looks more durable. I was pleasantly surprised at a great price.

Yes.

I have one up in the field right now. I am impressed for $88 bucks.

The fabric is not the 600D, but does not feel like the cheap plastic from Ameristep.

Has anyone seen these online or are they in store only? A lot of options online and don't see one that fits what is above? I may be looking right over it.

Heath is absolutely right! It is a 300 denier weight fabric. It is NOT the plastic americrap blind. It's also wet printed so it will not fade as fast.

The 600 blind is the thicker fabric. But for 88 bucks....I bought one

I have one up for several weeks-pretty early to tell durability but seems well made compared to my Ameristep brick house blinds.

Thanks for the comment. For some reason rats went nuts on my 10 year old double bull the last month. Hoping to pick one of these up if there is enough positive comments

Another place to checkout ground blind sales is Rogers Sporting Goods. They have sales quite often on the Double Bull Double wide and other brands.

Mine took about a 100 yard tumble across my food plot and only had one really small tear. I was impressed.

I've got one set up as well. When I first bought it, I was thinking "oh well, it's a cheap Walmart blind.. itll get me thru this season." I can say without a doubt, I'll have this blind for a long time. It's super sturdy, thick(er) material than most, good field of view.. I'll be sitting in it with my wife in about 4.5 hours... I'll take a few pics and post.

Which window(s) do you normally leave open while hunting? I tend to only leave one corner window open with the crappy ameristep blinds. Curious how the window designs on this blind work and whether just a single window can be open?

Right now the Rhino 300 is $138 but the Rhino 500 is $131 on line, with free shipping.

From the web site:
This blind offers a massive 90 x 90 hub to hub for a comfortable hunt. Silent zipperless entry makes it easy to get in the blind without drawing attention to your location. The triangular window pattern allows for a clear shot from virtually any angle. The 5 hub system allows this blind to be set up and taken down in minutes. RHINO-500 HUNTING BLIND

Yall keep bringing this to my attention and yall are going to make me buy one after buying some clearanced double bulls this offseason for turkey hunting. I need one like I need a hole in the head but that's a **** good price and the reviews are stellar on other sites...

I agree with Smart I've got stands upon stands on my little 100 acre farm but at 88$ that's hard to walk away from! I really like the long front window and the way you can adjust the mesh! Headed to walmart at lunch!
