"A hunter should be able to stay invisible, reduce noise [and] scent, and have 360° of shooting with a bow, crossbow, or gun, even when hunting with a cameraman or friend, and the newly designed Bone Collector Blind does just that…which makes this ground blind applicable in any hunting situation on any game."

Rated 5 out of 5 by Toretto17 Great, cheap blind. Plenty of room for me and my gear when I'm hunting which is very nice. I would highly suggest that you open the windows a few days in advance because the open windows can make deer a little jumpy. June 17, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by NaturalBornKiller927 Love this blind This blind is a great size. Large enough for two people to bow hunt out of. Simple to set up and take down once you get the hang of it. I've read other reviews saying the zippers are cheap but they seem fine to me. I've got nothing bad to say about it at all. May 7, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by RBeach Nice Quality Blind I bought this to replace a smaller doghouse blind this year, and I am highly impressed with this blind. Initial set up: A little difficult the first time, as the instructions are a little vague about popping it open. It should read that for the first side panel you pop out, you really need to place your foot on the bottom edge of a corner, and your hand on the opposite top corner (diagonal), to make it easier. Once the first hub pops out, the rest is easy. After the first time setting it up, I can have it out of the bag and open in less than a minute. For the reviewer that said they found the blind 50 feet/yards from where they set it up: Did you use the tie down ropes that came with it? I did, and we had a bad storm and strong winds the night I set it up to let it air out initially, and mine never budged a bit. The thing is like a rock. If you are going to leave it up for extended periods of time, I would recommend better stakes. Interior: I am 6'2" tall and about 220lbs. I have no problem moving around in it. When I stand in the center, I can stand straight up and bend my head almost over to my shoulders. To me, that is plenty of room. I do not bow hunt, so I cannot attest to how your draw length would be affected, but I do not foresee a problem. Construction: Pretty heavyweight for what I expected. You do see the seams where it was manufactured (tiny holes where thread is sewn in). No big issue, as you have that with some tents. If you are going to hunt in the rain, I would recommend a waterproofing sealer (which I did). The interior of this sucker is BLACK! I mean DARK! The interior windows are held up with little wooden dowels that fit in a loop. The shoot through mesh is held on by Velcro, which I wish they would have used silent zippers, especially for the price. Take-Down: The first time taking it down was also a little difficult, as the instructions are vague, yet again. When you pop all the hubs in and the tops drops, the instructions leave out one important detail that makes it easier. When the top comes down, you will see the top rotate slightly. Rotate it a hair more, and it folds right up. When I received the blind, and set it up, I noticed one mesh window had a snag tear about 2" long. I contacted the manufacturer, and they asked for codes off a label and pictures. I sent them both of these. Within 2 days I got an email back stating they were replacing the window. Not only did they send me a replacement mesh window, they sent me a whole mesh window replacement kit for the whole blind! Customer service from the manufacturer was outstanding! Overall, I am extremely pleased with my purchase, and would not hesitate to buy it again. April 17, 2013

Details:we would not all be shooting, just one of us and would use a turkey gun, not a bow. So it's really how easily three chairs or stools could be set up.
Details:I have the doghouse blind and it is to small for me to draw my bow. I shoot a Mathews Z7 and when I draw the bow back my Elbow is pushing the back of the blind out at least 3". I need at least 65" Square. Will this blind be big enough?
A:The hub is the center piece in each wall that you see slight;y bulging out. It means 75" from the hub of one wall the the hub of the opposite wall.

A:You should have no trouble getting to full draw with room to spare. I had the sane problem with the doghouse blind and this blind solved the problem. I have a 29 inch draw length and can get to full draw with no problems in this blind with room to spare.
A:definition of hub is the center. So the way it is measured would be from the front bottom rt corner to the rear top left corner measuring all coners in the same manner, then visaulize the lines intresecting each other and that point would be the center of the hub
