I am thinking about buying an Avery Powerhunter for $150 out of Cabelas. They look like good blinds but I want people's opinion on how comfortable they are, how easy they are to see out of, are they roomy, etc. Thanks for any help.
i have a powerhunter we love the ones we have. They have the flop down lid i think that keeps you concealed better than the finsher. They are plenty roomy you can put youself a cooler and shells and everthing inside one they keep the wind off of you really well. They are really light and easy to carrie. I should know we carried them in many times this year. we killed 79 geese and 3 ducks from it. They are really easy to cover in corn stocks to. there small enough they arent to big. I like it i think its the perfect hunting blind
I dont like the flip down opening.It takes a tad longer to get your gun up in shooting position because of this and that second wasted can be crucial to shooting locked or flared birds.Still beats laying on the ground.
There are many blinds that are better now. With a good wind at your back the lid may or will flip closed or try to and hit you in the head. They are not that roomy and alot of guys, most, have to leave their gun outside of blind laying next to them in the field.
I have one with a ghilli cover on it. I still have it but hunt out of a Beaver Tail now. I kept the power hunter for anyone that goes with me. Not a bad blind but if the wind is blowing at your back hard enough the lid can fly up and hit you in the back and head. Doesn't hurt but can get annoying in the Kansas wind.
It works and is relatively cheap but definitely not the best on the market. I use a ground force and have power hunters for my buddies that don't have any. They are easy to set up, low profile, easy to see out of but the stubble straps are too big and if there is a strong wind to your back it'll blow the cover back over you mid shot. Haha
