This was the first deer season for my 2 grandsons, 11 and 12, and a ground blind seemed to fit the bill better than a tree stand. We used this blind from mid September until mid January, my longest product test to date. It was moved one time but stayed outdoors for that period.
I like the way it blended with the background, the interior space and the ease of putting it up and taking it down. The zippered entry door is a little small and noisy to operate. Windows, including netting, are good and well spaced but to open the netting you must peel back Velcro and it's noisy.
We spent many hours in the blind over the course of that time and weather conditions varied greatly. It did a good job of protecting us from flying bugs, rain and snow. We also had deer and turkeys as close as 7 yards and we were not detected, so I'd say the camo works.
The Big Country blind from Ameristep retails for $99.00 and seems to be a worthwhile investment if you're in the market.
