Default Shoot through mesh?

Have any of you used the shoot through mesh on a ground blind?

Does it work with arrows well?

Should I cut a hole in it so I can shoot an arrow?

I am leary to shoot mechanicals thru the mesh, I have shot fixed heads thru the mesh on a Double Bull blind with no problems.

I haven't shot through mine but a buddy has taken two antelope through the mesh in mine. One with a muzzy and the other with a mechanical, not sure which make it was? It didn't affect arrow flight at all in either case. With the mechanical he pushed the arrow through the mesh and it didn't open, not sure if that is a true test as there will be a big difference when shot out of a bow.

I have shot several replacement blade style broadheads through the shoot-through mesh of my Doghouse blinds without any affect on accuracy out to about 20 yards. I haven't/won't try expandables as they are likely to open in flight.
