Was thinking about picking one of these up for my core hunting adventures. Anybody used one? What pros and cons did you have or for see. Any comments or help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

The concern I have had is what happens if the sun hits it just right and creates a giant glare. Also I bet it gets very hot to the touch early in the season.

It may be good for a one time set up. Otherwise I do not see a use. Deer can get used to things real quick, and a blind is no different.
I know a guy that was going to set one up next to his feeder; he was concerned that the deer would see his pop up. I explained that they could see that 55 gallon drum setting on three legs over their heads just fine, and it didn't bother them. An established blind is no different.
Heck they walk up to our blinds, shed, house, troughs, tanks, protein feeders, cars, gates, etc and it doesn't bother them. If you put corn in a pop up a deer will walk inside to get it, just like they will in a hog trap.
I think just getting something established is more important than concealment.

On the lease that is no problem. But on core land I cant leave a stand up for maybe more than a night this is due to thieves, people hunting your spot, and the game warden have the right to take down any stand or feeder on public land. So I figured this blind my be a good alternative.
