RUGGED CROSS AUSTIN BLIND

1 | RUGGED CROSS AUSTIN BLIND

Talk about effective ground blinds. The Austin from Rugged Cross is just that. Its aluminum frame is durable, yet lightweight for easy mobility. The camo material is completely see-through from the inside, but it prevents anyone—or anything—on the outside from seeing in. You have virtually-unobstructed, 360-degree viewing capabilities with this blind. This one is both a bow blind and a shooting house. Comes in Realtree Xtra. (MSRP: $2,400)

2 | RUGGED CROSS MICHAEL BLIND

The Michael, also from Rugged Cross, is much like the Austin. It only weighs 100 pounds. However, this one is a full-fledged shooting house. It offers the same concealment as the Austin. This blind comes in Realtree Xtra. (MSRP: $2,100)

It happens every year. You’re walking through the woods, and a bird gobbles fewer than 100 yards away. You look around, and there isn’t a stitch of cover. This ground blind by Hunters Specialties—in Realtree Xtra Green—solves that problem. It’s eight feet wide, sets up in seconds, and conceals you on the fly.
