I'm going to use mine this year and probably will just take it off, I'll be pretty sucluded and wind shouldn't be a problem so I should be fine.

It really does help to hide your face and movement in the blind and doesnt phase the shot a bit for bows,rifles,or shotguns..i say leave it

I killed my buck on Saturday evening fellas. 45yds, dead on with the mesh up. I was using sonic 100 heads that are smaller in diameter than my fletching and I still had no problems at all.

I got a groundblind at Dick's Sporting Goods.It's a Stealth Hunter by Comfort ZONE.It says to only shoot through the mesh with broadheads.
I use Muzzy 4 blades but I'm still worried about what the mesh may do to my accuracy.

If you get a chance, practice shooting through the mesh in your backyard. You'll find that it doesn't effect your accuracy at all.

I plan on videoing the majority of my hunts this year, the majority of which I'll be doing out of a blind. You can bet I'll have the mesh screen up to hide me, my cameraman, and my camera.

I just thought about this too.

If I remember tomorrow, I'll take my Ameristep blind out back and take a video shooting through the mesh so you can check it out.
