Maybe a dumb question but looking to get ground blind. All the ones I’m looking at has shoot thru mesh are they good for bow/crossbow? Won’t that mess with the bolt? And if not what is a good ground blind to get? Thanks

Primos Double Bull and Rhino Blinds. Both are very good , well made blinds.
I’ve never shot through the mess and wouldn’t.

Blind material is where the cost is. Fabric or 150, 250 500 & 600 are the thicknesses and weave.
150 is the basic and cheapest, usually tears and fades in the sun eventually. 150 is plenty good enough for a month of hunting.
If you want more, like to leave the blind out from Sept to Dec. I would go with something thicker like 250 fabric.

The Rhino 300 is 300 frabic and silent door, meaning no zipper on the door. I really nice blind for 140.00 on Ebay

For state land i use Barnnot grounder 250 or a Ameristep Silent brick house for 95.00 In case some thief needs it.

I use Ameristep doghouse blinds I hunt private property so I just leave them up in the offseason. 3 seasons now with no problems.
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.

The new Primos blinds have gone to way bigger windows and I hate using netting. Their earlier blinds with Predator Camo & vertical windows were far superior(just after they went to the larger door size). The portability factor is important to me but I sure have been eyeballing the ******* Bale & their smaller Ghillie style blinds they have.

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.

As long as the screen is stretched tight, the vast majority of broadheads will see no effect.

Just open the windows you are going to use and leave them open. I never close my windows and the deer totally ignore my blind.
I was getting busted in the past and decided to keep my front window open this year.

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!
