I need a big one which you can stand a shoot a bow and sit and shoot your rifle.

Any favorites? I've seen a couple on-line

Primos double bull is on the of best for quality and size. You can get last years model at a fairly decent price if looking online.

I'd recommend the Barronett Big Mike. I've left mine setup from Sept - Feb every season for the past 3 years and will be putting the same on up again this coming season. 80" tall so great for standing with bow, which is why I got it. And it's affordable at around $170 .

I second the Double Bull. They are made with top grade material and are very roomy.

PitchforkPredator bought a few Cabela’s brand and they are huge. Very roomy and built to last. Not sure which model though.

Thanks Sap !!! I had no idea there was so much to buying a freeking pop up. After reading reviews, not sure. just hate spending $400 on a damn pop up.

I just got on my buddies lease, a guy FINALLY got off cuz he's a new Dad. I have a regular blind but I want to put a pop up closer to the feeder for bow hunting.

My stand is on a LONG pipeline, so I will put another feeder about 250-300 yards down the sendero. We'll see.

The lease is near Windthorst. You have to get your buck the first two weeks while rutting. They go nocturnal after that.

Buzz,
Primos Double Bull or the large one from Cabella's are good. I was lucky and founds some Ameristep Backstrap popus on clearance with Gander Mountain closing (they are heavy duty material) which I like as more durable, don't flap, shine in the sun or fade as bad. A buddy has a huge hexagon popup (3 people easy fit in it and still room to stand, moved, draws bows and move about with cameras. Tip is get one with easy moveable window closings and the popup blinds with horizontal squeeze down closings (like Double Bull) I think are most practicable. I don't worry about shoot through mesh (I open my shooting ports).

I've had a Barronett Big Cat up for 4 seasons. Still going strong. It's a hub blind so there aren't any poles or assembly. No zippers so it's plenty quiet. A zipper might as well be a chainsaw an hour before daylight in the woods.

I don't want to go against the grain here but I had a Barronette and it faded out and got brittle in one season. It was bad enough that it would tear by pushing on it with your finger. I am actually in the market for a new one as well and have been looking at Rhino Blinds or a Double Bull.

I have a Big Cat, it's big enough to have a party in.
I have my hunting chair, a comfy chair for before it gets light, cooler, Gun Chair a rack for my rifles and still have room to walk around.
I don't leave it up all season, just for the week I hunt.

I need to put mine up in September, take it down in February. dang for $400, I could almost get a decent 4X6 Box blind bang

I'm trying to find time to go sit in some.

Where would you go Cabelas or Bass Pro?

I picked one of these up on sale a few months ago and set it up in the backyard. seems like it will be a good one that will last but only time will tell.

Buzz,

Cabela's has much and more choices of pop up blinds to touch, feel and sit in than Bass Pro. I stopped in Bass Pro Grapevine this afternoon they had a grand total of 3 (2 that were cheap material IMO) and the new Double Bull 360 view that you can not see in, but form the inside looking out all the walls are completely see through. However, I did not like the window openings. The covers had to be either closed or open with no way to partial close, make smaller the opening or mesh to adjust.

I think the Cabela's XL may be the way to go.
