I have owned a Ameristep Doghouse and currently have a Carbon Hunter, both good blinds but if I have the $$$, it would be the Double Bull Matrix!! I was in one a Cabela's and I think it would be a dream to hunt from.

I have the Double Bull.

Lots of money compared to most, but if you have the cash, go for it.

I have heard a lot of good things about the Double Bull but no firsthand experience. I arrowed a doe out of an Ameristep Doghouse this year and had many more in range at different times so it did the job. I like it because its small and if brushed in, very well camoed. The price was also right to experiment with a blind - just over $50 at Fleet Farm when it was on sale. The downside is that it's small. You have to do a little manuevering to draw and shoot. I draw back facing one of the corners and then slowly swing to one of the shooting portholes. You also pretty much have to shoot sitting or kneeling, both of which present no problems to me. But if you like to shoot standing, check out a blind that allows you to do that.

I dont know of any blind made that you can stand and shoot in. It would have to be 7-8 ft tall in order to accomodate the limbs on your bow if you were standing.

Ameristep makes a blind you stand up in and shoot your bow from. It's called the penthouse. I have one and it works great. I'm 6'6" and can easily stand and shoot from it. A tall blind is also nice for those long days hunting, you can stand up straight and stretch without leaving the blind. I think I paid around $180 for it.

      Man you can really see the standards of this site of have dropped.  A few years ago we were talking over $80-$100 Thorne Brothers Custom made Ice Rods.  Now a $9.99 dollar rod is the talk for the forum!  We need to bring back the Rich folks!

      I think we should start a Go fund me for Cropduster to take his plane up and give us some pics. lol  He did it a few years ago but not lately.  Its pretty cool veiws from above when ice is forming.  I wonder if he is still lurking around here?

      was out tonight, 6-8 in out from the dnr landing. wheelers and a couple perms out. still open water out in front of Peters resort on the south shore. It starts out a couple hundred yards from shore and runs to the north- northwest for a long ways. some of the spots that were open earlier this week have skimmed, be careful out there if you see different looking ice stop and check!!

      Thanks for the report--about what I figured, which is why I stayed down here in Iowa this weekend. I am fairly optimistic about getting on the ice in southeast or south central Minnesota next weekend; whether I am on a lake around Faribault or Waseca, or one of my old backwater haunts on the Mississippi remains to be seen. Maybe Clear Lake, Iowa. Whatever I do I will post my results.

      If you are willing to go a little further into Canada, I would recommend Hollinshead Resort, a few hours north of Thunder Bay.  The resort is the only one on the lake, and in June offers excellent Walleye Fishing, as well as some dandy Northern Pike.  It's somewhere you can drive to as well.

      Caught 20-23 gills and 6 crappies. Fun day on the 10 inches of ice. The whole lake was close to the same where I cut all the holes out and around

      I’m still seeing very random thicknesses all over.  In the past few days I’ve been from St. Cloud to Winnie and have seen vehicles on the ice and open water on the same lake. I’m in Little Falls.  Tonight I checked 2 lakes NW of town.  Both had people fishing.  One looked to be safe for wheeler travel and the other, very near it, still had an open lead and you could see the difference between the first sheet of ice and the second. I hope it doesn’t get covered with snow anytime soon so we can still tell where the changes are. Be safe. Bring floatation and picks.  And don’t drive yet! Ruh ro....
