    I am looking to purchase a ground blind for both turkey and deer hunting. I would like one that is large enough for two people to bow hunt out of and the luxury of standing up inside of. Wondering if anyone had some suggestions on a good ground blind like this. Thanks in advance.

    I love my Double Bull, I have had to adults, one kid and a camera set up in mine before. Two guys with bows are no problem. They are super easy to set up and built to last. You get what you pay for with blinds.

    Rhino Outdoors XP-1. You can almost buy 2 for the price of one Double Bull. They are the same size and tough as nails. And a lifetime warranty on the frame!

    I have had mine for 4 years and it has survived sitting out in heavy snow storms for most of the winter as well as a tree that fell on it. Everything about it is heavy duty, I used to buy a new blind every year because I got the cheap stuff and since I got the Double Bull thats all I have needed.

    This ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^. Very impressed with mine.


    The Bell Bottom model is great for bowhunting due to its wall shape and windows.

    There is simply no replacement for a Double Bull, I've used just about every blind on the market and they are all disappointing after using and owning multiple double bull blinds. You certainly get what you pay for.

    I hunted all weekend in my Big Mike's XL blind and it was fantastic. Really big and easy to set up and take down.

    Double Bull is the best, but if looking to spend 200 less the Barnett Big Mike or 350 are great blinds!

    I've seen a lot of complaints about the D-Bull wide. I am not so sure they are the same quality as they use to be. Check out Primos forums.

    My girlfriend got me a Guide Gear 5-Hub blind for my birthday, although my birthday is this weekend and I am yet to see or try it out, according to the dimensions, it seems plenty big for 2 bow hunters and the reviews are pretty dang good for the cost if you ask me. I will comment back after a little field testing

    I used one last season. Good blind for the money. I'll be picking up another one this summer. Make sure you get some good stakes for it. The ones that come with it are small and won't hold with much wind

    I haven't had any issue with ours. Well nothing that sitting on the open prairie in beating sun and 50mph winds for 60 days wouldn't cause. And Primos is awesome to deal with if you want to send your blind in for repair. Customer service is top notch IMO.

    I have the hubcat 250 and love it ( looking to get the bell bottom eventually ) can't stand up but like several other brands it is built well, think the Big Mike would be the one in their line your looking for.
    Best to do what your doing here and research different options .

    Well at some point I may give them another go. I wish their blinds were still made in the USA. Last DB we bought was made in China. They were made in the USA before Primos bought them out!

    Not to sound like a fan boy but the Rhino Blinds are made in the USA. Not to mention they have a tone of brush in loops where the last Primos blind we bought did not! That and the DB I believe was like 6-7 lbs heavier. Which is the weight of an extra chair. It makes a difference on those long hauls!

    Buy and try them both! :)

    I like my barronett grounder 350. When that wears out I'll be going back for another. I'm 6'4" and am very comfortable standing in this blind. Plenty of room for two people, gear, cameras, bows, and you don't feel cramped. This blind has been one of my better hunting purchases.
