It used to be available on the double bull site or ameristep site but I haven't looked for any in a loooong time. You might check with them.

Most fabric stores has camo mesh in bulk. Just cut to fit.

+1

I got a video with my Double Bull blind and it said that they offered replacement netting, if needed.

will the very light weight camo mess they sell at academy or does it have to be scientifically engineered to shoot through well.

I honestly don't know if the Academy mesh will work or if it needs to be special weight. Anyone use shoot through mesh?

When my mesh windows need replacing, I'm planning to just use a light weight black mesh from Lowe's or wherever. I've found that the camo mesh is really hard to see through when you get sunlight on the mesh. You can see much better through black mesh, even when you get bright sun on it. Also, if I want to let the mesh down to shoot a Rage, then the deer notice the new black hole. They sometimes get freaked out by that.

I closed up the windows and then sprayed the mesh and window flaps with flat black paint. I poured some corn out up next to the popup with the new black windows. Within a couple of days, the deer quit paying attention to the "black holes". After that, I could shoot a Shuttle T-Lock through the mesh, or I could let it down and shoot a Rage. Either way, it still looked about the same whether the window flaps were closed or open or the mesh was up or down. All black.

Thanks for those pics Pencil Pusher. Looks like I have found a solution.

does the mesh have to be tight to shoot thru it effectively or can it be loose to fit.



Stuff my dad said in the deer blind

"I can dive deeper and come up drier"
"did you do that?"

I'm sure your bow will poke an arrow through that little mesh no matter what, but I 'magine that tight is better than loose. Shooting perpendicular to the mesh is probably better than shooting through it at a steep angle too.

I've used the camo mesh I by at Academy or Walmart without issue.



I work hard, drink a little and hunt when I can.
