Time for a new popup. Looking for one that will last more than a couple years. Double Bull the best? Anybody tried one of the Browning's?

I bought the ameristep Bone Collector from Gander yesterday along with a 2 year replacement plan. They said they would replace even for sun fade!

Rhino blinds have held up very well for me.

if you have cattle on the place you might as well forget about a pop up staying up all season...they will eventually tear it up beyond recognition. Tough lesson to learn last year and I even tried putting up wire fencing to prevent them from getting to the pop ups. Still didn't help.

I leave mine up all season every year. They've never touched it once. Wind, sun and age are all that have affected mine. Guess I will be going with the double bull

I leave mine out from sept 1st thru the end of the season. I usually get 3 or 4 years out of one. Never had any of them make it through winter ice, spring storms and summer heat, including a double bull. If you are going to leave it out year round why not make a more permanent blind out of wood?

I said I leave it out all season. Not all year. And I have a permanent one but I hunt multiple spots and don't feel like building another right now

If you buy a high dollar one don't let your buddy "borrow" it. Next time you see it the cows will have destroyed it. realmad

I have always been a big fan of Double Bulls, but have heard great things about the Rhino Blinds. I will probably try one when I buy another one.

Aggiehunter03, not sure how much you move the blind, but we have started building our own. They are nice and we can fit them to the terrain and to what best fits your style, but you can't move ours very easy.

I built one too. I just don't feel like doing this again right now. Plus I need one I can travel with.

I finally got fed up with pop ups. If you can get your ATV to where you want to hunt, I would suggest something like Maverick blinds. Just a plastic she'll with Windows and a door. 6' or 5' diameter. Easy set up and store. No wind flap noise and better scent control I think. Relatively lightweight. I have moved the two I have around on the ranch by myself just sliding it into the back of my Gator and used a strap to hold it down. I didn't have to take it apart. For the price of two Double Bull blinds I can get one of these that last a lot longer and I don't have to worry about rats or squirrels or deer destroying it. I looked at Krivoman blinds and they were just more expensive for me. The Turtle blinds were thinner from what I saw on another ranch in my area. The Maverick was just something in between the cost of the two and did exactly what I needed. Rhino blinds work ok but with every pop up I have used they just don't make it past two years for me. Sunlight deterioration and varmits ruin them.

I need to buy 3 for this year and need them to big enough for 2 persons comfortably with good head hight. I have used the Eclipse Xl and they have worked pretty well. But always looking for something better and durable. I am bad about leaving out year round and find they don't weather well.

I bought a double bull deluxe off amazon for $262 shipped. We will see how it does.

Here is another option for you. It's not really a pop up (which I hate- can't ever seem to collapse them down without breaking a rod) but it is portable. Check out www.luckyshuntingblinds.com. I bought one a lot of years ago and used it until the fabric rotted off. Bought a new one a few years ago and although I don't leave it out all year it has lasted me several years. Much quicker setting up in my opinion than a pop up.
