Thinking of purchasing a hunting blind for next year. I'm going to hunt turkey, archery & flintlock out of it. Any suggestions out there on what kind. I've been looking at Ameristep and others, but mostly Ameristep. What's the difference between steel spring and hub???
I have an ameristep back strap blind. I like it, but it may be short to shoot a verticle bow out of. I got it for $90 on the anti-gun auction site. It will fit two gun hunters. 1 guy is like living in the Taj Mahal.
Definitely get a hub style blind. Trust me. I've had both. The only advantage to the spring style is the price.

Thanks for the response. I've been looking at the Killzone hub blinds. Been reading a lot of good reviews on them and you can't beat the price. I just wish I could touchy feel them. Anybody have one of these????
If you want a ground blind to be able to stand and shoot take a look at the Barronett blinds like their 350 model. I have one and they are huge. The only thing I don't care for is the windows are too big for my liking. You could fit 3 people in one easily though.
Personally I am done buying temporary blinds for hunting. Of course I can leave mine out on private ground. I am now going to build a few out of wood that I could move with the tractor if necessary. I figure I could build one for about what I spend on a ground blind and it should last a lot longer. It seems like I don't get more than a few years out of a blind.

Don't remember what make it is except it is a pop-up with an external 2 pole frame. I paid extra for the camo netting. But the point is is it's all about proper placement. I put mine up in August this past year and was able to take a doe from it. Since I don't hunt from trees, this is very important to me during archery. Doubt you can use any kind of bow other than a cross bow from most of them. I have the Double Bull chair which is made for these blinds. Proper shooting height and comfort are also important, IMO.
