Default Ground blinds?

I'm looking to pick up a couple grounds blinds for deer hunting. These will be used to hold an adult and child in bag chairs and a tripod mounted AR15. I'd like something I could leave up all season. Getting a couple years out of one would be nice.

Is that doable for a couple hundred or less per blind? Thanks.

This. Used same Ameristep Doghouse for 10 seasons in Canada weather. I'm sure it would hold up a few seasons if left out all year.

I used a Primos in Illinois and loved it. Has magnetic windows for quiet opening and closing and had plenty of room to draw my bow. Easy to put up with no poles or anything to install in the inside. Can't remember the name except it was a Primos. But it wasn't the real expensive one I see in some ads

I own a few of the cheap ameristep and primos models and there is plenty of room for 2 and equipment. They were all less than a 100 and some on sale for 79.

They can be aggravating to fold up until you learn the right twist to make them go down correctly

Don't know anything about them but cabelas has some in the bargain cave. For this price they would be worth taking a chance on.

With a footprint of 56"x56" it's going to be a tight squeeze.

Stay the hell away from the Ameristep Outhouse blind. One time trying to put that son of a bitch back in the bag and you will throw it in the fire.

When you figure out how to fold it, it takes like 5 seconds

I got so pissed off last year with folding one in the rain that by the time all was said and done, I had twisted it up and purposely broke every rod that went through the blind. I had it folded in an L from stomping on the damn thing.

Everybody in the truck was laughing their asses off. I threw it in a dumpster and ended up ordering another kind

GT Willie saved mine or I would have mangled it too and burned it at Tin Top I hate that damn thing. It hasnt been back out since and that had to be 7 years ago or more.

And for everyone saying how easy it is, try it sitting down, in a chair, with NO use of your legs whatsoever and get back to me on how easy it is
