Default Pop Up Hunting Blinds

Hi Everyone. I recently received a pop up hunting blind. The only problem is, its 60" square, and too small to draw back a bow inside. Whenever I draw back, my elbow hits against the back of the tent wall. The only thing that seems to work is if i open the back window up so my elbow sticks out, but then that skylines me. Does anyone else have this problem, or any solutions to this problem, even if it means modifying the tent. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks all.

Get a bigger blind. Go with the Double Bull Matrix, the ASAT Quickie blind, or the Ameristep Brickhouse. These are all hub blinds and are the right size for a bowhunter. They willl actually accomodate two bowhunters.

I got an Ameristep Stackhouse. The thing is huge. I can shoot my bow sitting and standing comfortably and still have room for all my stuff. Now that I think of it, maybe theres someway of riggin a TV up in there or a stove of some sort. Guess I have a summer project.

Id deffiently return the blind for a bigger one. If your on a budget take a look at big games matrix blinds lots of great features and you can get the deluxe blind for about 150 bucks. If you can afford to spend a bit more take a look at ameristeps dominator blind.
