Double bull blind question?


mnhunter2

Recommended Posts

I have decided to buy a double bull type blind and have seen another blind that looks like a double bull but dosent have the same type of openings to shoot thru but weighs half as much, its made out of a nylon type of fabric and I was wondering if anyone has any idea if the bull blinds are worth the 400 bucks or go for the 100 copy from the NWTF?

I got a nice blind from Wal-Mart for 30 bucks, Gander had the same one for 70 bucks. And yes I can stand up in it and shoot from all sides and it comes with a back pack to carry it in. I can't see spending that kind of money..

Double-bull sized blinds are great for hunting groups (guides, parents / kids, etc....), but if you are hunting turkey on your own - a smaller blind is more than adequate.

Make sure the blind fabric is "thick" enough so that your movements can not be seen from the outside.

I bought a Double blind approx 5 years ago and it has been a very good blind and well built.Last year Cabelas had a blind for sale about the same size as my Double Bull and set-up about the same.This one from Cabelas is close to the same quality and the patterns are close.The only thing Im not sure of is if this other blind will hold up as good as my Double Bull will.For the difference in price,the next time I buy another if needed,it will probable be one from Cabelas.I will say that the Double Bull does take less time to set-up.The only thing Im not real sure of is if the deer can tell the difference in the two,but while sitting in them I have not seen them react any different.In my mind,I would watch just how cheap of a blind you buy as there are some out there built really cheap and you will not be happy with them.They are very hard to set up compared to a better quality and probably will not last near as long.If money is not a issue,buy the Double Bull and it you are looking to save a little then go with less.In my opinion,Double Bull is probably the premiun blind out there,but spendy.Also,not to get windy but some of the cheaper blinds rods to hold the blind up are cheaper than others and will loose there tension.Stay away from the blinds with the coils on the walls as they will loose spring and it will be nearly impossible to put up.

For turkeys, it's all about the fabric, and how tight the rod-system holds it. The cabelas blind is nice, but the fabric ripples in the wind a bit, and at least the older ones had a "sheen" to them. Fine most of the time, but the one or two times it costs you a cagey old bird, you might kick yourself. Like I said, for most birds in most situations, fine. Depends how anal you are, how often you use the thing, and how much you have to spend.

That said, I own neither. I've hunted in several and would probably save up gift certificates (christmas) and/or cabelas bucks to get the double bull. If you plan on hunting them for the rest of your life and you're careful with it, you may own it that long.

I have a Double Bull and love it.

The one downside, is that if you plan on hoofing it long distances, it can get downright heavy.

Other brands are much better for mobility due to lighter weights.

Personally, I will deal with the weight of it because its just flat out a great blind.

Very durable. Very quiet. Large enough for me and the kid if I want.

It meets my needs easily.

I have hunted out of a DoubleBull for 6 years now and would replace it in a heartbeat if it was lost or destroyed. The fabric and construction are well worth the price. I've hunted out of others with friends and been disappointed by the noise and poor wind stability. The DoubleBull is definitely the way to go if you plan to keep your blind for years. By the way, it works well for deer and squirrels as well!

It works wonders on deer.

I shot one this year at 5 yds out of it. Pretty crazy being at eye level with a deer so close, and you can move around and draw your bow. VERY fun.

blb have someone sew ,(or do it yourself) backpack straps on the bag the blind goes in. I used treestand backstraps and then haul it in one my back just like a backpack. It sure makes it lighter than carring it in one hand. I would replace mine in an instant if something happened to it.Well worth the extra price.

i have the T2 double bull blind. I have shot alot of tukeys out of it. My brother has one also. They are a litle tight for 2 people people to hunt out of, but it can be done. We now have the matrix blind by double bull. I would replace them, if something happened to them. You ussually get what you pay for, so spend the $$$$$.

      The mayflies are just starting in Frazier Bay.  We could see a few in the boat the last couple of days.  Then started seeing big trails on water yesterday and today.  I just got done cleaning 3 walleyes and they were full of them.

      Have the Mayflies started.  We are coming up end of July and trying to see what the time line for them are this year.  Not sure how the late ice out would effect the hatch.  Thanks in advanced.

      67 degrees today in big bay. No fish today for me.

      Just an update, walleye are still hanging on the week edges.  I caught mine in 8-10FOW again.  Lost one that was 4-5lbs.  Best part, I have yet to use livebait this open water season.  Basically the same technique as last week.     Only issue is finding the weeds that hold the fish.  Same as last week, just looking on SI, finding small transitions between weed edge, soft/hard bottom ect.     Once you find them, then you can spot lock/talon down and cast at them.     And, as before all fish were released.

      I am with you. Can’t seem to find any walleye

      Saturday and Sunday were tough days on the water, NW winds post cold front. Got better yesterday and today. Took a retired friend out today and sent him home with 4, should have been 6 but I was off my game. Water Temps around 70. Unfortunately can only fish Thursday as I have to work a few days, this weekend. Safe travels on the Independence weekend!

      Wasn’t quite sure how this week would turn out because of all the reviews but have had a blast and caught some awesome fish. Very weedy in most of the lake canoe out to less weedy area and fished around the weeds caught multiple 4  even heavier bass in a row definitely recommend it
