Not sure what the Bushlan model is, we have a 5x5 with a porch on a 10 foot stand. Been really happy with it so far they are tight blinds and well made. For the cost, what we got and what it would cost is to build a lesser quality blind that wouldn’t last near as long, we have been happy with the purchase, probably getting another this year.

13 years ago when we made some new pasture arrangements at the lease in NE Lasalle County, Creegr, Prudhomme, Klappenbach and myself all worked out a deal and purchased four and ended up with 6. Had them delivered. Have moved some since then on our own. All have stood the test of time. My 5x5 is and has been golden, absolutely golden. SIL and myself will both hunt in this blind tomorrow. Somes have had to coat the roof for small leaks in the seams. Not a big issue.

Keep them towers at five or ten feet and setting them up does not require a front end loader. Road tied to pickup on lifting end with offsetting pressure provided by rope on the backside. Getting above 10 feet and you will be creating some real work for yourself. Their towers are safe & turdy, just plain ol' awesome.

I am a believer.

I had a 5x8 on a 10’ tower with a porch a few years ago. Set it up and took it down with a p/u on and off of my 20’ trailer. Dang nice blinds.


Still looking for a S Texas quail lease spot.

If this is the Bushland Outfitters blind it is nothing like their original blinds. It is thin gauge sheet metal skin over a square tubing frame. Shelves under windows and carpet on walls and shelves. Towers are braced well but not heavy material like expensive blinds. These are much lighter in weight. Same windows and door as expensive blinds. Won't be near as heavy or hard to stand up. I looked at them but ended up buying a 5x6 fiberglass blinds on 10 ft tower.

Not sure what model ours is, nothing about it was cheap and it’s heavy. I forgot to mention earlier, the only thing I don’t care for are the windows, they are huge and if you plan on shooting you better open them as soon as you get in the stand. They make a bit of noise opening and create a lot of movement due to their size.
