although i have never owned the double bull, i would say that it would be better as long as you can break it up really good. and you will be protected from the elements much better in a double bull than is a natural blind. and since you cant use a treestand id say invest the money into a nice blind.

If I where you .. I would get the Double Bull Matrix or the T5 model , you won't regret it .
Think about it ... your going to be doing alot of hunting in all kinds of weather , a nice blind like the Double Bull will come in pretty handy.
Talk to gregholland , he sell's these blinds and he'll give you a good deal , you can find him in the classifieds under hunting gear section.

Sounds like you really want to get a DB. You're probably going to get the same responses as before. Get one. Then you can have the option of using it or natural blind. They are the best pop-up blind. You could use it if you ever hunted other areas. As RDHunter said, good for inclement weather. Really, the only drawback is price. I have a Doghouse TSC and love it. I don't use it a lot and it does fine for me but the DB is definitely a better blind. If I get to where I don't climb trees anymore I'll be getting a DB.

What I have found out is blinds are great if your careful getting in and out. And if you put them up and leave them there for a while so the deer get use to them. Just my 2 cents

IF you can leave the blind up & brushed in it is fine. Deer "USUALLY-not always" shy away from them if they haven't been up for awhile. I have an Ameristep & love it-have another I just ordered. NOT AS PRICY AS db. Does excellent job for me.
We cannot leave our blinds up in Public areas I Bowhunt.
I use either a ladder stand or Stick ladder & a hang on in my public areas.
Good Luck. Ground hunting is fine-took MANY a Deer b/4 they thought about climbing into a tree.

PaBowhunter, Maybe check into a cheaper blind starting out. While most aren't as good as DB's they will serve you fine until you can get a DB. That way you can try them out and see if you like blind hunting without spending a ton. Here are a couple you might like http://cgi.ebay.com/NEW-EASTMAN-OUTFITTERS-CARBON-VENTURE-BLIND_W0QQitemZ120095085367QQcategoryZ7305QQrdZ1QQ cmdZViewItem

I've got a Doghouse TSC which is larger than a regular doghouse. It also has a zip in floor which is kind of nice. You could get any of these and they'd do you fine until you get ready for a DB.
