So I'm looking at layout blinds. Reading out of the catalogue I've replaced my nudie magazines w, macks Prarie wings! The price really isn't a big deal just want a quality one that will last, and do the job. I know some guys on here like the cabelas ones. I've never had one, so who suggests what? I do want a cammo one not feild khaki. Any suggestions on a particular brand and model?

Also w the layout blinds, I've never gotten inside of one, so do you push the doors open? Or are they on some kind of spring loaded release? Like I said no clue.

Perv, it's much easier to figure out how to use a layout if you see it as opposed to someone trying to explain it. Look for goose hunting videos on YouTube, you'll see how they're used.

Are you hunting public or private perv? It'd be easy to get whatever layout was most comfortable if youre on private and can just drop it out of the truck to hunt. If you hunt public like me, a layout option I used all this year was the medium sized beavertail sled from cabelas. It's like 4 lbs, you can tow your gear in it, it floats, and can be used in up to 6" of water with 200 lb me in it. Toss some burlap over it, brush it up and you disappear. Not mentioning it's pretty darn comfortable with your back on the slanted front end. No way I'd ever lug a normal layout blind where we usually have to walk. Just a thought, hope it helps in your situation. yingyang

I like the cabelas line. I have two right now. My favorite is the Lightning set. It doesnt have any bells and whistles, but it sets up in about 5 seconds, even in the dark. I have found that they are all plenty comfortable, so speed of set up is important to me. I have used several brands and I think Cabela's are the best.

I have the Rogers Goosebuster XL. It is made real well and has held up very well. I like the over sized one since I'm a little over sized also. Has lots of room for blind bags beside me on one side and guns on the other. It want fold up quite as small as some of the others but works good for me.

I have had the mobile light cabelas one for two seasons and have had no issues. If you are walking in with a layout blind I highly recommend this one because it is several pounds lighter than the next size one.

We had this discussion today. In my opinion, layout blinds are expensive cumbersome and uncomfortable. I sold mine. I went back to an old school backboard with a camo netting with rafia grass. Easy, cheap, light and no set up time. You can also hide better with a much lower profile. Even for my grande profile I hide better. Mine cost $0.00

True. The sled idea is a good one. I have and use burlap alot but have been thinking of using a layout blind. Yeah they're all around 300 Give or take. One guy said the avery power hunter. It's the cheapest. Keep the comments coming

Like the rodgers, looking on Google for momarsh and the only layout I can find is the one w the feet on it or the chair or a layout boat blind. Not a shore layout blind
