What is your favorite blind and why? Too many to choose from and I'm not sure what's right.

I'm about 6'1, 260 so I'm a bit too big for the smaller models. :lol:

If you want a large blind go with the FA legacy. I'm not a big fan of FA, but from what I know that's the largest blind out there.

Only problem with the legacy is it sticks out like a soar thumb (too big?)...

I guess it depends on the fields you're hunting in.

Buy the cheapiest Wheel Barrow you can find, throw the wheel and the handles away, solder up the holes in the shell, paint it, tie a string on the front , drag it out and sit in it all day..

For compactness I like the Avery Migrator, but have used the FA Pro guide for years and am really happy with it, but it is 7' long and I now have a short bed PU. Both of these blinds are good if you have a dog as they can tuck under the backrest out of sight and their body heat helps keep it warmer when it is cold out.

The Finisher is ok--but not enough room IMO. I', 5'-11" and it is too tight. And somebody mentioned the FA Legacy---well it works fine, it is built for big guys as it is longer and a bit wider.

My buddy built an 11'9" Decoy a couple years ago that we put on his snowmobile trailer. It has doors on its back that when opened, look like its wings. Two of us fit in it, and it's highly visible. Works for us.

Only picture I've got is from a newspaper that the outdoor writer for the local paper did and no scanner. Not too long after the newspaper article, though, a Guided hunt outfit came up with with a similar one.

I ran into the same problem trying to figure out what blind to purchase. Last year I used a goose chair blind I got on sale and it worked fine. The draw back was its cumbersome to carry into the field and in cold weather it does not offer much in the way of protection from the elements. I now have a "Gooseview" X' Terminator. I chose this one cause it's only 12 lbs, and folds up and in half and it has straps to carry it like a back pack. $199.95 + shipping from the 2004 Cabela's catalog. It has a zippered opening, in the front for your dog and to clean it out. removable shell holders, flaging ports each side and a comfortable seating position. I also like the bungie cord doors that fly open with little pressure. It was a hard desision to make cause I found them all to be so comparable. Good luck hunting.

My best friend is my black lab!

I am doing a patent search for a blind I have made last year and used in all types of field and by water for waterfowl. I am also 6'1 and the other blinds are too hard to move around in. I should have an answer by the end of the week. If you would be interested in seeing what I came up with send me an email and I can send you photos and information. [email protected]

Guys... I bought a cheap sled at the end of snow season at the local Wally world. I painted it black and cut a plywood back and hinged it so thatI can adjust the height. I cover up with a waterproof camo material (12 bucks at the local sporting good shop). I cover up with some corn or hay that the farmer has laying in the field and I've got to tell you.. She works great. I can haul my deeks and gun and the geese out with it. cost me all of 25 bucks to make.
