Has anyone seen one in person. I only found it as a pop up ad. Looks like it might be a more reasonable choice over the redneck blind.

I'm not impressed with the bylnds at all. they seem cheaply made.

I have had the regular blynd for 30 years. I have rotted out a couple of floors but the blynd still is holding up strong. I put 2 of the 4x4 blynds together when my kids started hunting with me and framed the sections so it would be easier for one person to take down and move. It has been a great blynd and I have raised 3 kids in it.

I just built me a new deer stand and gave mine to my kids so no telling how long that stand will be around.
I once drank muddy water out of a hoof print and was dang glad to get it.

I have their 4x8 with their 5ft tower and it's a good blind for the money. It's one of those things that needs a little work to get it to where you want it. I installed some of those foam squares that snap together and then threw a piece of outdoor rug over it to quiet it down. Then I put some strips in between the tower bars and the floor so it would dampen the sound. If you bump it inside it sounds loud but you really can't hear it from outside. My buddy tends to doze off while we hunt hogs at night and snores lol. I just keep his window shut and they still come in to the feeder 40 yards away from the blind. We have it set up for crossbow hunting. We use the anchoring system and have it ratchet strapped to two different trees and it doesn't budge. I also sprayed it down with some camo paint to take the shine off of it. Definitely get the full size door. There isn't a lock on that model so I installed some large eye bolts and use two large master locks. It isn't a ranch king blind but it does the job. Call Carter Country and ask them to sell you a display model for a discount or try Texas Direct Hunting Supply for a good deal. They supply everyone in Texas with blinds. In time I am going to get a Ranch King blind on a trailer because my buddy is going to end up in a wheel chair in the next couple of years. I want him to still be able to get out hunting with me.

At least they're trying to innovative a little. I was in their place (San Antonio) a few years ago and I thought they were on their last leg. Their blinds have always been a decent value for what they are.

the plastic lasts awhile, but have to watch you're noise level.
