Final Approach Eliminator Express Blind

David Frank

Recommended Posts

Hey everybody... need some opinions here. I currently hunt out of an Avery Finisher ground blind and love it... wouldn't change a thing, but my uncle is looking for a blind that won't cost him quite as much as the finisher since he doesn't get to goose hunt as much. Gander Mountain has the Final Approach Eliminator Express Blind on sale for only $130. I have not heard anything about this blind before.... good or bad...... Anybody have any experience with this blind or know anything about it? Any possible information would be of great help. THANK YOU

I went to Gander to look at these blinds last week. The only thing that concerns me is that they are like a sleeping bag. I have the older FA Grondhog. That is the one that has the blanket with the stubble straps. When you move the blanket alot of the grass falls out of the blanket due to movement. I personally like the blinds like the Pro Guide or the Legacy. When these blinds are set up the walls don't move much and hold the grass in them much better. I know they are more expensive but I think your Uncle would like them better.

On a side note maybe you could split the cost of it with him and you could use it for other guys that may hunt with you when he is not with you. I have 3 blinds just for this reason. When a young person or sombody new to the sport goes with me I have a extra blind for them.

Hope this helps.

Thanks a ton for the information!

I go to school in Aberdeen, SD and do nearly all of my goose hunting down there and only live in Fargo during the summer..... My uncle is from Bismarck though so splitting the cost wouldn't work due to the distance, but could be a good idea if we were closer.

Keep the info coming guys!

I am the same way... I started hunting out of an ameristep ground blind. They take a little longer to set up and are not quite as comfortable, but you can definately decoy geese out of it so I still keep it around so that if I bring a buddy or somebody else, they can be covered as well.

      Nice job Bob! Fishing off the neighbors dock sucked for us. My gang is coming up Thursday night till Monday, this will be our opener, we'll hit it hard. It's a bummer my dock is mostly under water and the lift isn't in. Thanks to the neighbor around the corner for letting us park on shore at there place next weekend.

      I had a great weekend the weather was decent and fishing was good. I caught 5 walleyes 21"-25", 4 northerns largest was 32" and a 17 largemouth opening day. 2 more walleyes, 2 crappies 2 northerns on Sunday all on jig and minnows.

      We had a good opener as well we could have kept limits opening day, but just kept enough for a fish fry. Then Sunday had our little friendly tourney and everyone had a pretty good day. Pulling cranks and jigs n minnows caught fish.

      Had a great opening weekend. Son and I boated 51 walleye between Saturday and Sunday. Plenty of small stuff but no problem getting some nice keepers. This is a pic of the best weekend fish for us.

      I was on Rice this weekend also. Seen boat lifts with water up to the canopy. I was the only one to catch a fish out of the hole campground It was about a 6" crappie.

      We had a pretty good weekend. There were two couples and we limited out both Saturday and Sunday. The eyes we kept were all 15-17”.  We caught many 10-14” eyes and one 26” which was returned to the water immediately. All on a variety of jigs in 18-35’ of water. As usual the women out fished both of us😀

      Wrong area, sorry.

      I will second the advice on watching out for floating debris.  We saw a lot of floating logs and deck sections this weekend.  Also, most hazard and navigation buoys were not out yet.  I wonder how many lower units and props were destroyed this weekend?  It would be dicey if you don't know the lake.
