What are some ground blinds that have a height of at least 72" and less than $250-300? Thanks in advance.

You talking pop ups or something different? There are pop ups that are that tall. Hand built any size you desire.

6ft tall popup is a pretty big popup, that's a tent, not a blind. I've got a Ameristep Brotherhood, while not 72" tall is plenty big for 2-3 adults and stuff.

I’m a new guy here and can’t afford $2,500 nice blinds after paying for my lease. I decided to go with two Barronett Big Ox blinds. My plan is to set them up in September and leave them through January. Wanted plenty of room.

The material on these blinds are heavier than anything else I could find. Wouldn’t recommend it if you plan on carrying on your back to multiple locations because they’re heavy at 34 pounds. But at 80” tall and a 7 ˝’x7 ˝” interior floor, I have plenty of room for me and my two grandkids.

Going to use good stakes and will also anchor the hubs. Also bought some “Permethrin SFR 36.8%” from Amazon to treat the blind and the ground around and in the blind to keep the creepy crawlers out. If anyone have some more suggestions, please chime in. Need all the help I can get. smile

The cheapest place I found them was Walmart online. My delivered price was $232.53 each.

Hope this helps.

Update, just checked Walmart and the delivered price would be around $215.00 today.

Xitnet, I agree!!!! Just purchased one. The Big Ox. I built a treated platform to put mine on for two reasons. It is about 2 ft above ground, that gives me better sight picture plus area I hunt has slight flooding at times and I don't have to sit in mud and water.

DLALLDER, I'm hunting this place on a single year lease with a five year option after that. Wanted to see if it was worth staying after the first year. If I do, then an elevated platform is a great idea for me next year. Thanks!!
