I practically "stole" two brand new doghouse blinds, but not from another hunter! I got them on a blow-out sale at a retailer for less than $20. I bought 2 and gave one to my brother. I also own an Ameristep Outhouse, but I like the Doghouse proportions better.I use Ameristep doghouse blinds I hunt private property so I just leave them up in the offseason. 3 seasons now with no problems.
That's a nice looking blind TX, but with that small arrow opening, I'd be a little worried that the xb arms may fling out and hit the mesh on either side of the opening if you're not really careful. Definitely something that can be avoided, but knowing me, in the heat of the moment, I'd screw that up!Take a look at the blinds that have "view through" material. Primos call's their's Surround View and they have their Double Bull design blinds made from this material. The 270 and 360 are nice size blinds and the ability to see out 270 or 360 degrees is a very nice feature for long sits. These blinds are expensive but have lifetime warranties on them and they are on sale right now.
