Wind is definitely a problem if you get a big storm once the leaves are gone.  That area looks pretty well defended with cover though if you're only using it for fall bow.    As for stakes, I used 12" iron stakes that are about 1/2" thick rather than the cheap things that come with the blinds, this makes a huge difference.  The blind's feet will rip off (and they have) before those 12" stakes come out of the ground.  Tying off to a log is also a good idea so you dont have to go on a "blind recovery mission" at some point.  It probably wont get too far if you dont, but the bouncing off things can permanently damage the support poles.

That blind must be huge!!  It makes you look small and that is hard to do brutha! 

 

It looks to be about the size of the BIg Mike / Big Mike XL, which I guess Sportsman's Guide is now knocking-off.  They are huge, and I highly recommend them.  You can sprawl out in comfort, and there's a lot of space to conceal your movement on a long sit.  Great quality too, so strong that I dont even bother with extra center support in winter, they've withstood a foot of snow, followed by rain creating an ice sheet on top and took it all in stride, zero roof collapses.

The bottom of those windows look pretty high.  Make sure you can shoot out of it alright.

I take that life if I can, with regret as well as joy, and with the sure knowledge that nature’s way of fang and claw and starvation are a far crueler fate than I bestow.” – Fred Bear

One of the first things we checked, lol. We set it up the day after it arrived in the back and he took shots out of it..... Looks high, but is very adjustable and he was shooting well out of it standing up with room to spare at the bottom of the windows..

 

Heck, for $79.00 with free shipping, I may even grab another one for another spot......

I cable all of my ground blinds. I've learned the hard way. I use stainless steel aircraft cable.

Good stuff, but I gotta ask, don't you guys have chiggers up there?!  If I went in my woods in shorts I'd have to set myself on fire!

Have to agree with BB, do that once down here and your done. Nice blind and good luck with it this season :up:

If you plan on leaving it out in the elements keep an eye on the fabric.  A lot of Chinese company's cheap out on the UV protection of the fabrics.

They do get bigger; because maybe your entire family needs to hunt the same field!
