In your opinion what is the best two person pop-up blind for the money. My wife and I are planning to do some bowhunting out of a pop-up blind and want to make sure we get a quiet one with plenty of room for two people and one that you can set up in the dark. Any suggestions of brands?

I have an Ameristep Brickhouse that I got last year. Pretty roomy. Enough for 2 to have plenty of room. I think Bass Pro has them on sale for $79.99 this week.

What ever you do, get one of the hub style blinds (like the ones mentioned above) instead of the doghouse style blinds. More roomy and stable in the wind.

I'm thinking of getting one, too. Plan on hunting with my 10 year old more this year. I haven't looked at them much yet, but NO VELCRO is one of my requirements. Can't understand why velcro is used in something that has to be quiet.

There's one on Craigslist for $60. Looks like the 2 man Ameristep. Very quick and easy to set up

If 2 people are using it, get the Primos magnum. You will be glad you did.

I don't know the dimensions of this blind, but the principle is right on. In my opinion, if you are going to hunt with two people inside, get the biggest one made! I wouldn't worry about any other characteristics but size. I turkey gun hunt out of pop-ups, and the biggest one(something like 5' squared) is adequate for just me, but would be cramped,IMO, if you added another person.

It's like buying a camping tent - if it's rated to hold four people, that really means two.

I would recommend the Ameristep, have several in various sizes and they've held up well.

I am 5'11" and I can stand up straight in the magnum, my buddy is 6'7", if we hunt together, this is very important. It has a larger inside area than all others also.

If you had 5 people and 5 shotguns in one blind......that's scary.....especially if a turkey showed up. lol

>>Can't understand why velcro is used in something that has to be quiet.

Me neither... I go to the craft store and get some little adhesive-backed magnets, turn the screens around and glue washers on the back sides, then stick the magnets on the velcro.

I like this idea. My Rhino has velcro on the screens, but not on the fabric flaps. I like everything else about it.
This blind sells for around $125. Rhino Rut & Strut

For archery hunting you need a lot of room inside a blind. Im not sure if you'll find one that will be big enough. I bowhunted from mine a few times and your backside has to be tight against the corner to allow room to draw.

The standard size surely won't do IMO.
