laydown blinds

7 posts in this topic

me and my buddy just got premission to hunt some very good goose hunting land and we have decided to look for some lay down blinds. we are going to go to the game fair the last day next sunday hoping to find a good deal on them. So i was wondering if we could get some feed back on some nice blinds to look for hopefully on the less expensive side.

I really like my Avery finisher. Had it for 3 years now and I think I got it for $200.

Yeah, the Finisher is pretty much the standard I think. There are some other ones that I have not used like the Power Hunter and the Cabelas models, but if you are willing to spend the $250 go with the finisher

does anyone have the problem on their finisher blind with the headrest not staying in or is a pain in the butt to get into the posts?

Cabelas usually has a couple of their Interceptors in the Bargain Cave for a good deal

I had a finisher and got rid of it. It was a great blind but I am about 6'3" and I didn't feel comfortable in it. The main thing I didn't like was that I couldn't raise my legs up because of the gun rest. I got an Xlander from Final Approach and have liked that one so far. There are a few new blinds out this year that are kind of a cross between a finisher and a power hunter. They look like they would be a good low profile blind and are cheaper than the others. Your best bet would be to go to a store that has a wide variety and lay in a few and go with the one that you think is the most comfortable. Good luck with your purchase.

I'll second the Cabela's Interceptor blinds...I have a couple of them and they take a beating. I've had them so muddied up they weighed twice the normal weight. I spray them out, let them dry and the material holds up to the muddy/wet/dry/muddy/wet/dry etc. Plenty of room but not too high of a profile for my use. I'm not the best on my equipment and these are worth the money. Only thing I've done is spray paint the tubes at the bend as they are polished aluminum and stick out like a turd in a punch bowl. Until the ducks/geese read up on them and find out it's an economy blind, I'll use 'em until they fall apart...which isn't likely to be any time soon!

      You were in the right area, maybe just the wrong time.  I went out late this afternoon to see if the house my Dad has been using came through the "flood" OK and decided to drop a line when I was there. When I first dropped the hook down the hole a walleye screamed up off the bottom and slammed it 5 feet off the bottom. So out of curiosity I just sat there and jigged 4 to 5 feet off the bottom and they kept coming up and slamming it. They never touched the dead stick that was set 1 foot off the bottom.  All I can think of is that with the snow cover gone they could really see something up against the sunlight. I hadn't seen the walleyes that aggressive all winter.  maybe it was because I was fishing in a hole about 20 inches wide due to the water running down it.   No I don't think so cuz I have a big roll of duct tape and a bunch of white sheets. I'll wrap me, the Jeep and the dog in white sheets. We'll be just like ghosts.  OOPS, just remembered that the snow is all gone. I really think that after all the years we each could stick a pin in a lake  map guessing where the other one would be and we would each be within 1/4 mile. From his description fishing tech was right on the eastern edge of your favorite area.

      What needs to be in the boat, to be legal to fish Superior. I've been trying to find it in the book with no luck.
