    No help here, I've got a cheapie I picked up from SportsmansGuide that I use main for bobcat hunting, most every thing else I'm a spot and stalk kinda guy, but I do carry a 3D leafy sheet, 12' X 5' diecut camo paneland a few clothes pins to toss up a fast blind if I need to when calling with the FoxPro.

    I bought one and figured I'd love it but it's basically sheet metal on a plastic backing .... It looked nothing like I expected when set up I returned it and bought a primos vision

    I used Ameristep for several years (Bowhunting) & bought a Turret XL KILLZONE 3 years ago for $99 delivered. I love it & bought another last year. They have several models & are similar to any of the other BIG name brands that are much more expensive. No qualms about quality at all.
    I've used them for Antelope & Turkey & even 2 people & gear in them with plenty of room. Personally, I can see no reason for buying a high dollar blind over these. A very satisfied customer..

    I agree, BUT Antelope are definatly a different breed. The wind can be blowing from you to them & they still (after standing off in the distance) & not seeing anything move, will come into drink. Blind is actually 25 yds from tank.
    NOW, when I put up a blind for anything else, it's brushed in & you will be lucky to notice it at all + it goes up a few weeks ahead of time.
    Turkeys are the other exception-they will walk right up to it 1st day like it was never there.

    The tourny forums don't get alot of activity. I'm a hunter first and foremost and use the local 3D shoots for practice and to spend time doing something with friends and/or family. No interest in getting too serious about target shooting of any type. Many years ago I used to shoot a few different state's championship Action Pistol events, I got tired of the attitudes and quit it altogether - I don't want 3D to end up the same way so I'm keeping it low end.
