“For late-season stand sites, I’ll use both treestands and ground blinds, and I’m so familiar with my grounds that I’ll start setting them up in September and October. For ground blinds I like Primos Double Bull models, and I prefer them for their durable material, their quiet window systems, their roominess, and the warranty. But they last. I’ve been using some for 10 years, and I use them about three months each year. But I take care of my stuff, I make sure to clean, dry, and store them. If you leave them out in winter, snow will kill them. But regular maintenance on all your gear will save you in the long run.
