Depending on the type of game you are hunting, you will want a hunting blind that is tall enough for you to stand up in. For deer hunting, most hunters prefer a taller blind so they can get a better view of their surroundings. For smaller game, such as rabbits or squirrels, a shorter blind may be more suitable.

Ground vs Elevated

Blinds can be placed either on the ground or elevated. Ground blinds are easier to set up and take down, but may not provide as much concealment as an elevated blind. If you are planning on hunting from an elevated position, such as a tree stand, then an elevated blind would be the better option.

Camouflage Hunting Blind

Clear windows provide a better view but may not offer as much concealment. Tinted windows offer more concealment but can make it difficult to see what is going on outside. Windows on a friction hinge can add to ease of use. Some great partners here

If you want to feel the real rush of hunting wild game, then hunting with a compound bow will give you the thrill you are looking for. Bow hunting requires a more advanced set of skills, more covert behavior, a higher degree of accuracy and even more patience as you wait for your prey to get close enough for an accurate shot. Shooting a compound bow also requires more room to maneuver to allow for the bow to draw back and fire the arrow. The combination of needing to be closer to your target and open space to maneuver means you are more exposed to the elements and your prey. This means any movement, any smells, or any noises are more easily detected and the chances of you scaring off your target are much higher.

Some things to consider when buying a compound bow. First and foremost, they are right hand and left hand specific. So you need to make sure you are selecting and buying a bow that is compatible with your dominant hand. Secondly the draw length. Depending on your height and arm length can determine the draw.

The Value in Hunting Scopes

The value of a high quality hunting scopes or optic can’t be overstated

Any successful hunter knows that it is key to have some critical equipment:  hunting scopes, proper hunting clothing, a reasonable weapon and on that weapon is a hunting blind. An outdoorsman’s ability to have success while chasing big game can come down to very simply his or her ability to hit the target. No single equipment is perhaps more important than a high quality hunting scope. That alone can make the difference between hitting or missing the big game.

Hunting scopes can vary is price, clarity, zoomability and range. Some things to consider when shopping for a hunting scope:


Budget – scopes can range from $100 to $10,000. Features that can drive up a price include: day/night capabilities, zoomability, and clarity. It is best not to go too cheap on a hunting scope. Check out a wide variety of hunting optics or scope here.

Weight – keep in mind you will be carrying your weapon around and you want to ensure it is not overly heavy. It is a balance though, some of the highest quality optics are made from premium metal and glass and that can increase the weight of the overall weapon.

Zoomability – you never know how far your target will be once you are in the hunting blind. So have flexibility to zoom up to 10x is really important.
