Anyone ever tried shooting a bow out of one of these new chair combo blinds? Looks like it might be a fast and easy set up and I am thinking about picking one of these up. I am sure for Gun Season they would be GREAT, but I wondered if any of the Grizzly Land Archery Hunteres had tried one of these with the archery gear? :)

Ive never seen the 2 person. I would think it would be difficult to shoot out of the 1 man except for a straight forward shot.

I have the two man ladder stand. Killed about 15 deer with archery gear from it. A little heavy, 78#. But man is it comfortable and roomy.

I have a skirt on it from indoor/outdoor carpet. Breaks the wind and rain. I set it deep into a row of tall pines, deer walk right along the pines, sometime under it.

Been hunting stands about 40 years, started with a Baker climbing stand (hug the tree). Now I'm too old to use that stand and sold it 5 years ago. Double is the way to go, I can stay in my stand 12 hours, comfortably.

Bear the thing he is talking about is a chair that sits on the ground and has a blind that pulls over top of you almost like a 1 man ice fishing hut.

I looked at one of the single hunter one at cabelas . would not reccomend for archery hunting . Your arm would hit the back wall on the draw . They have this one on sale right now
