Default Tallest Portable Ground Blind?

Anyone know what the tallest ground blind on the market would be?Spring 2008 will be my sons first turkey hunt and I need something tall enough to accomodate his longbow. I believe the DB matrix can be bought at 74" high. Anything else?

Yep, I have a Penthouse and it truly offers alot of headroom.

Another pair you might want to look at are the BigGame Treestands Escape Deluxe and Escape Pro. They "only" go up to 6' 3" or 75 inches.

The typical springsteel blinds such as the Doghouse, Penthouse, etc... are easy to setup. Take down usually takes a little practice as there is a bit of a trick to retwisting the metal back into the small circular shape. Not that big of a deal once you get the hang of it.

The hub-style blinds like the Escape/Eclipse models are easy to setup and take-down. Just pop the hubs out and then pop them back in.

Escape Delux. I'm 6'5" and can stand up in it (my head brushes the top). I believe it is 78" tall.
