Favorite field blind


Recommended Posts

What is everyones preference for a field blind, I like the final approach eliminator a little tall in the field but if camoflauged right it works great and its quite comfortable. The only drawback is it takes up alot of room. I am also really impressed with the finisher it looks like a neat setup and it folds down for easy storage. I haven't hunted out of one of these yet but plan on it in the future.

hey icehawk
All my friends and i Hunt out of the finisher and it is great but like all blinds has some down falls like the tension cables broke on both mine and my cousins last year but Avery sent us out new ones so they are good as new. Their major assert is the way they fold down.

I have the Kelly Powers (Power Hunter). It is nice in the fact it is light. Not having the full frame, you can't easily keep your gun in the blind and quickly open and shoot without it hanging up on something. I just lay it right next to me.

I had the opportunity to use a beavertail blind on a guided hunt last early season, and let be tell you it is by far the most comfortable blind to lay in bar-none. The back is a solid wedge of foam. With foam sewn in the base pad. They also don't have a frame but the sides are two large "flaps" that when closed overlap and cover you.

If one could combine that foam wedge with an internal frame you would have the ultimate ground blind in my opinion.

I use the X-lander and like it for the fact that is virtually disapears in a field. It has a low profile witch is nice but,it makes it hard to call when you are laying that flat. I think the warden (wife) will inheret the X-lander and I am going to get a finisher next season.
The Eliminators are by far my favorite for comfort, but as IceHawk said they have a high profile and won't fit in some pickups.

I like the finisher, I had one of the Gooseview destroyers and did not like that one at all. Good thing a hunting Buddys ran it over with his truck

Pimp I see you dropped the nickname and became a Prostaffer.

This on goes out to the pimp,oops Mike Walerak, and labby. The blind is nice to nap in, but shooting geese is another trick. You can hunt out the most concealed blind on the market and not shoot birds. You first must be able to call the birds in. Ha Ha. Hope to see you in the field fellas. Flip

Hey everyone,
try this trick
if you ever hunt geese in a pasture or in a field next cattle try use a painted plywood cut out of a cow. works great in a pasture type setting, you can even use it to sneak up to them in a field. when you use it for a blind, you just keep it between you and the geese, if you want you can make two of them and sit in the middle of them. it works so well because there is no where to put a traditional blind in a cow pasture because there isn't enonough vegetation

I am a bigger guy and most of the blinds you are talking about are to small. I invested the extra money last year and bought the Final Approach Legacy. I love it. I have hunted out of the Pro Guide for years and think the Legacy is a much better blind for a big guy.
As far as the blinds being to high profile. I haven't had a problem as long as you spend the extra time in the morning to cover it with the vegitation you are in. I don't leave any of the material showing. It is worth the effort. I may be wrong, but have been told geese don't have depth perception (sp).
Remember HIDE, HIDE, HIDE.

    • could that happen???? yea probably, but unlikely.   i've been chopping or helped or watched cutting spearchucking holes since i've been about 8-10 years old, i'm 65 now, and never remotely seen it happen. ''closest i came was cut a spearhouse hole, plopped the house over it and ended up with a deadhead right smack in the middle of it. the top of the log about 4 ft below the ice!!!!!! 
    • That would be nice til you caught a log frozen in the ice and broke both your arms and your back.
    • Screw your little toy e-augers and chain saws!  😏  😆          
    • the wife and I took a little drive to Arkansas for one more ride. 
    • I get where your coming from Leech. There are some gray areas and loopholes and they know how to work them. These youtube people they want you to be angry, it all plays right into their revenue.   The thing with these youtubers is they unfortunately  have a mass following and they will tell all their fans to show up at the DNR offices, court house, call the office phones etc. And it just drives up their following, youtube views etc. and the result is just more revenue for the youtube channel and people get sucked right in (myself included). Like I said love him or hate him he's generating significant income by doing it and its like a bad car wreck you just cant look away.    In some cases the DNR getting involved the risk outweighs the reward if you get my drift. look at the crowds that came out for him over a misdemeanor jet ski fine in TN. It looks like its straight out of the movie "Time to kill" lol:   More:  
    • Another reply from the DNR Capt.  Sounds like their a bit afraid to dig in and get what the need to prosecute.   Mr. Beeeped-out  😉 I do want to thank you for your time in researching and sending us the information.  The second video in particular involves the CBoyz near Cormorant Village in Becker County.  If you watch many of their videos they are full of violations.  We have met with the County Attorney’s Office and we have been told that unless we can provide a date/time of the actual event they will decline to prosecute.  We have identified many of the players in these videos but only have a date/time of the video release and not the actual date and time.  We have also made contact with them and taken enforcement action in many of their videos.  They are not afraid to film our officers in action.  In addition the first video was a year or two old if I recall.  I will not disagree that when looking at the video there is areas of concern but unless we can observe the damage and be able to testify in court that the wetland was damaged we would likely not be successful in prosecution.  We will continue to monitor their activity and if observed causing damage we will be taking enforcement action.  We appreciate and share your concerns.  If you have any additional information please forward to us.  Capt. Seefeldt   These Jackwads!    
    • Can't stand the guy and don't watch his craap!  I was watching videos on the Sherp vehicle which is pretty cool and these two popped up.  When I saw them mowing over Wild rice beds it [PoorWordUsage]ed me off and got me to send it in to the DNR.
