Ground Blind

Bought a ground blind yesterday for my son to hunt with his crossbow. Set it up last night outside to air out, should be able to get up tomorrow and brush it in really well for this weekend.
Just looking for input on experiences with them, I have never used one before. Don't want to shoot through the netting so I will leave the window down.
I need some kind of rest for him to shoot with, thinking of building a small shooting table to set the crossbow on and shoot from.

Re: Ground Blind

I use a Primos trigger stick with my crossbow out of a blind. Lightweight and adjusts to different hrights easily.

Re: Ground Blind

If you want a cheap version of the Primos stick. This is what I did. Walmart has the simple shooting sticks with out the tripod for 8.99 take the screw in "V" off the top of it and purchase the camera tripod for $24. Take the top off the Tripod and screw in teh "V" you are good to go. Works just as good as the Primos Tripod but for 60 less.

Re: Ground Blind

I like the Primos Trigger stick as well. Easy to adjust the height on the fly. I always try to setup mine so that I only have two windows down. This allows me to stay back in the corner and keeps the blind dark. The deer have a tough time picking you up. If you have the windows down on all four sides then the deer is looking thru the blind and if you move it is easy to see the movement.

Traditions only last if you pass them down to your kids!
