Gentlemen,
Any advice on a pop up blind here.
I am making a deer hunt in the south Texas brush country in a few weeks. It is the first time I have hunted there in 27 years. Back then I shot a short recurve (56” Rocky Mountain) which I do not own anymore.
Since that time I have been shooting and building my own hill style longbows exclusively. Back then we built ground blinds. I have wanted to try a pop up so I bought a Barronet Grounder 250 pop up thinking it would work, but I guess that’s what I get for thinking! I plan to return it.
Does anyone have any suggestions or advice?
I may just need to do what I did back in the 90’s and make a ground blind.
I appreciate any input

ground blind is your best bet.  it would be nice if there was 1 or 2 already established.

The grounder 350 is what you are looking for. Plenty tall for a longbow.

I have never found a pop up (with a ceiling) that works with an ASL.
Agree with others about ground blind, I like shade cloth and brush myself. Camo netting workks great also

Thanks for the help guys, I sent the 250 back and bought the 350
I did some measuring and it will be fine, just a bit more work to brush it in.
Going to do both ground blind and the pop up.

Sorry this is late to help you with this, But the Barronett Big Cat Blind is great 80"x 80"  80" tall it also comes with lower set windows than any other blind I have found. It works great for a Trad bow

Is that what you always use when you hunt the Delaware Gap?

I have a Blackout X300 from Bass Pro. It's 90'' hub to hub and 76'' tall. Plenty of room for any longbow. I've killed a couple of Antelope out of one. 1-P1080080.jpg

Wow Steve Turrey,
That’s a good bit larger than the Grounder 350 I bought.
I think I am going to have a tough time brushing the one I have in well enough.
I will bet it is nice for an all day sit though.
Do you use the shoot thru mesh in the windows? I am not sure I could do that.

Yes sir, I've killed half a dozen or so shooting through the mesh. As long as the mesh is tight it has no effect on arrow flight.

awesome, I will give it a shot (pardon the pun)
I was thinking it would throw me off, I guess you can see pretty good thru the mesh
Thank you
