Yes, no problem. I have set pop up blinds in the middle of big fields in the open and taken gobblers. I have used them in an urban area where there are only a few acres that can be hunted and successfully and called them in. On two occasions I used a blind on days that rain was predicted and took gobblers home. There is another area that gobbler roost every year and I do not have access to approach the field from the woods so I have to approach across an open field before daylight to get my blind up in the field.
I don't use a blind often as I like to stay mobile. However, I believe my chances of taking mature spring gobblers at these locations would be greatly demished without the use of a pop up blind...
On all of these occasions I set the blinds up before daylight the day of the hunt. I would advise some practice setting up a blind to be assured one can do this very efficiently, minimal movement and quietly in the dark if the turkeys are roosted near by.
I learned this the hard way, but since the turkeys flew out and disbursed they returned mid morning a few at a time walking all around my blind until one of the bigger gobbles came into range.
