I have never turkey hunted in such and will give it a whack this weekend with my son. My question to those that know is do you unzip just one of the windows or several or what? Do you wait til you spot a bird or get it done as soon as you get in? I have the Eastman 360 pro vision or something like that. Trying to give my boy the best possible odds. Thanks

Not a dumb question at all. I just unzip the two or three windows facing my decoys. It makes it much darker inside and you are able to get away with a lot more movement. When birds come up behind me I will just slowing unzip one of the other windows. Hope you and your boy smash one!

I personally leave the back closed, so I wont be hilighted by anything approaching from the front. I hunt with a deke set up in front, so I unzip the front and both sides. If one comes in from the back, I suppose that I would just turn 180 in the blind and let him walk into view on either side.

What he said. You definitely want the one behind you to be closed and I only open the ones I need to shoot out of enough to see. The darker on the inside the better.

I really appreciate the info, I am wondering if you are real slow and careful would you be able to unzip these things a bit more if you already had them started.(with bird present but not staring at you) When I set this sucker up and climbed in for the first time the other day, I knew I would have some questions about this deal. Been hunting since I was a kid and this kind of setup is all new to me. Thanks very much for all input, it gives me a bit more confidence.

I leave the back closed to keep it as dark in the blind as possible. I hunt with three decoys, a jake and two hens. I put the jake closest to the blind FACING ME head on, with the hens staggering behind. that old tom will come to that jake every time to kick his (tail). They like to face head on to challenge, and you will be close and personal with him when he does!

They very often walk all the way around my blind and NEVER have spooked. It is a really cool setup. I plan to have my 3 1/2 year old son with me opening morning under the same circumstances. He is biting at the bit to go turkey hunting!!

I,m also trying the dave smith decoys this year. These things look GREAT!!
