    Just bought this on sale at Gander Mountain, for the price it seems like a great deal. Very sturdy material, not flimsy like some others, set up in seconds in my livingroom. Definitely need a chair without arms for bow hunting, I am 6'0 300lbs and there is ample room inside, but I am going to invest in a blind stool so as not to limit my movement left and right for shooting my bow. Window mesh is removable which is good because you cannot shoot mechanical broadheads through the mesh (I shoot Rage) height is more than sufficient, I sat on a chair inside it with my bow, no problems drawing back. Windows are at the perfect height for viewing and shooting, Blind comes with all the stakes and ropes to tie down and secure the hubs and corners of the blind. Says it is weather proof, however have not had it out in the rain as of yet, directions say to seal the seams with a silicon based sealer if leakage occurs, thinking of spraying the roof with waterproofing prior to taking out so that the blind can air out and the odor from the spray can disipate prior to hunting. Overall I am VERY happy with the purchase, will be my first year using a blind, I am a treestand hunter but have a couple areas where a blind will put me right where I need to be. I hunt here in western PA and the weather can vary considerably so time will tell.

    I used this during bow season in upstate ny and it worked well. As the cold weather came in during shotgun season the zippers froze and I had to crawl out from under it. If your planning on using this as an all season Hunting Blind, I would not recommend it. The material only lasted 2 seasons and I now have to get a new one because it's split on 2 sides from the weather. Not recommended for the all day every day no matter what the weather is serious hunter.

            Comments about Ameristep Backstrap Blind, Realtree AP Camo:

            This is a replacement for a Ground Blind that was too small for me for bow hunting. This was quick and easy to setup. Appears to be made of durable materials. Plenty of room for me to maneuver with my bow. The carrying case/back pack was larger than I expected, but makes it easy to carry to my hunting spot.

              Can you shoot through the mesh using a rifle, or only a bow? Can you unzip the mesh so that you don't have to shoot through it? Thanks!
