Default Ground blind hunting

i just bought a groundblind yesterday for bowhunting, its a ameristep doghouse. ive been hunting for years, but thought i would try out hunting from the ground. Have any times on concealment? I plan on hunting deer in peanut fields this fall with it, and next weekend trying it out on turkeys. What are yalls experiences with shoot through mesh? i havent shot through it yet.

The mesh wont affect your arrow flight at all.

For deer make sure you really brush in the blind

For turkey just pop it up and your ready to go!

thanks for the info. The only thing that has me worried about mesh is the fact that my arrow will be making contact with 3 things, instead of two, before it hits the deer. Its usually just the string and the WB, but now its going to be the string, WB, and the mesh. It just seems like there would be more room for something to go wrong. Its got me worried because at one point, the arrow will be incontact with all three.

I have an Ameristep Doghouse and have had no issues shooting through the mesh at all. As long as you are shooting a fixed blade broadhead there should be no problems, except being patient and holding out for the best turkey possible.

100 grain montecs. I know i shouldnt be worried about it, and im going to test a few shots in the yard before i hunt, but it just seems like there's a greater chance of something going wrong.

Thanks for letting me know you're pleased with the doghouse Grizzly, We've finally got enough turkeys on our property to hunt and i cant wait to get on one!

I hunted out of a Doghouse and Doghouse TSC for many years and did not have a single problem with the shoot through mesh. I was using various short replacement blade style broadheads at the time and they performed flawlessly.
