Redncek Crossover bow and gun blind. About $2,900 at Bass pro. Will use if I buy for bow hunting only.

Check this one out by a fellow thf'er. I think this will blow the redneck out of the water, and let me explain.
I am basing this off the buck palace blind outside cabelas in ft worth...

First the door was too short for me, and walking out I banged my head on it, not a big deal, but annoying as heck and not what I want in a door. It closed well but don't know about the seal, if there is any open space insect and arachnids will easily find their home in your blind.
Second, the windows, while deerview like, were not exactly what I wanted either. the horizontal windows stayed open with ropes you looped a knot through the shelves, this will be prone to wear and breakage. Easily remedied, but still not best design.
The foam seals around the windows were already coming up in some spots, not sure if these are supposed to be glued or what, but as soon as those break down there will be insects in there as well.
The carpet is too thin, need a more robust carpet for sound deadening.
Other than that, the material seems good and the design is great.

I would prefer a metal insulated blind with good door and windows like the one above, but that's my preference. I know he will be able to make and deliver for you cheaper than redneck too...

Take my review for what its worth, 2cents , because I have not hunted out of a redneck and nearly bought the same blind you are considering now. Had I seen the one above sooner, I would have one of those instead of the one I got. I am happy with the wooden one I have, but for the same price I could have gotten metal and delivery/set up, well worth the price of admission for me...

I am going to contact them and ask to see the blind in person. I need to check out the other in person as well as I want a permament blind that will last.

The buck palace blind is out front of cabelas in ft worth. Just drive over and look at it. They also have a smaller Boss Buck blind out there, and while that was on the short list of easy to put up blinds, it didn't make the cut...glad too. It seemed like the connection points between each panel were not sealed well at all.

The redneck blind was good, just had some flaws which I thought of, but I am sure it hunts well and will last. I have no doubt the other one (insulated metal one) will last too.
