Features a telescoping frame and an angled handle, for easy transport
What our shoppers say:
I haven't really tested this cart out yet, but it seems well built. I would say for normal hunting in relatively flat terrian, it will be okay. If you have really rough terrian and long distances to haul game, a bigger cart with big wheels would probably be better. This cart's best feature is it's portability and lightweight.
This tripod was easy to assemble and all parts were in the box. I put it together at the house, except for the legs and carried it to the woods in the truck. I put the legs on and stood it up with my son. My son shot a deer from it hours after setup.
I have not had the blind out in the field yet. I opened it up in the yard so I could get a good look at it and make sure it was all together without any tears, broken supports, etc.\nI usually leave the blind up during the season rather than take it down every day. Based upon where I set up that would cause some issues with the deer traffic in the area. I've owned several Ameristep blinds. The is the first time I've rated one of my purchases from them so low. I've actually liked the structures, with the exception of the toggle closure as the weather causes them to lose their elasticity during the 2nd year of use.\nI'd read what I thought were some decent reviews on this blind, and wanted the magnet closures. Needless to say I was surprised to find it is mostly toggles and the two panels opposite the shoot thru openings are two connecting flaps rather than separate flaps as other Ameristep blinds I have used in the past.\nAn inside view: It has two shoot through openings. One is in same panel as the door opening. Standing inside (facing the door panel) you have a shoot opening in front of you and another in the panel to your left side. The window opening over the shoot thru are triangular with a magnetic closure in the horizontal position as the triangles come together. the sides of the triangle have elastic strips w\/ a hook that can be attached to a plastic ring that is tied on string around a support structure.\nThe other two panels have flaps that are zipped into the hub in opposite corners creating an overlap. The overlap has magnets placed horizontally to keep the flaps together. The flaps are tucked behind the support structures with the zippers in the corners. So between overlap being tucked behind the support structures and the magnets it appears it will stay closed if you don't want it open 180 degrees on those two sides. The overlap of the flaps is narrow, maybe about 1\" and you have to work to straighten the flaps in order to line up the magnets so they will make contact. I'm not real sure how well the opening for these two panels will fair in a really strong wind.\nThe size of the blind and quality of the material used is comparable with my Bone Collector, so that is a plus. I can say between my Bone Collector & the Brotherhood, I'll more than likely go back to the Bone Collector (even w\/ the toggle closures) after this blind has reached it's usefulness.
I bought the quad pod with the blind. I have three young boys and I was looking for something other than a tree stand. This is perfect. It provides weather protection, it covers their constant movement (being boys), and it is low to the ground for better safety.\n\nMy oldest son (13) helped me put it together and it took us about 3 hours. I am not a handy man so it may take others less time. It is well built and we did not have any issues. Just make sure that you lay out and organize the parts (especially the bolts) before putting it together.\n\nI am going to add carpet for noise and smell reduction and got a free 5' x 5' piece of carpet from a local store.
