Hi,
I'm new to this forum, I live in the Highlands of Scotland and I've been looking at Layout Blinds from Cabelas and I have come up with 3 for consideration.
I was wondering if anyone over in the US would either be able to check them out in store for me or care to comment on the quality of each with a recommendation for purchase.
The 3 I'm looking at are linked below:

http://www.cabelas.com/cabelas/en/t...nd&noImage=0&returnPage=search-results1.jhtml

The requirements would be:
A safe to use piece of kit.(ie: I wouldnt be blowing my foot off with a 10 gauge lying beside me)
A waterproof dry base for use on frosty fields, wet marsh etc,.
No flapping loose canvas.
Reasonable quality build to protect from the elements.
Quick and easy to open to get at the birds.
I would be grateful for any recommendations from anyone over there that could help me.
Thanks in advance.[/url]

First things first, glad to have you aboard!

Now, on to the question. I have the Avery and it is not only all the things you asked but is also quick to set up and easy to transport.

Where in Scotland are you located? Some good friends of ours live south of the highlands in Monifieth and Dundee. They spent a month with us this past summer and we are planning a trip to visit them next year. Super nice people and we are really looking forward to the trip.

Good luck on your gear!

Sorry for the delay in replying,
I am a member of a really good chat forum on Wildfowling in the UK that is run by the famous Wildfowler and Author, Eric Begbie at the link below:

http://www.less-stress.com/discuss3/

I have posted the same question on there and have decided to go for the Interceptor from Cabelas after receiving a very comprehensive reply from one of our members. Thanks for replying ponass. I'm located 40 miles North of Inverness.
I look forward to many hours of interesting reading on this Forum too, as I am currently on an Oil Platform in the middle of the North Sea.
It keeps me going.
I hope some of the members of this Forum also sign up for the Wildfowling Forum, we havew a large contingency from the USA/Canada already, so the more the merrier.

don't go with the first one on your list. My uncle has it and said to me today it is to laid back and has less room inside than the others. he got it because it was the only blind they had in stock at the time and he was hunting the next day in North Dakota.

I have the Avery Power hunter and i like it because it is really light. I also like the flip flop thing on top and it has enough room for when it's really cold to put my sleeping bag around my legs. It has a good price tag on it also. 8)
