Default ground blind

I bought my first ground blind and really like it for bow hunting but am having trouble seeing my sight pins while sitting in it because it has a shadow gaurd interior which makes it really dark inside...Anyone have any tips on how to fix this problem? The blind is an Ameristep G-3

You need to put a light on your sight, even when it is fairly light
out you still need the light, at least I do in my blind which is blacked out inside.

Had the same problem before... I found that if I slide forward right before the shot I get just enough light to see my pins; works for me.

As others have said, purchase a light that attaches to your site. I use one all the time.

If your not using your screens then you can slide forward like IOWABUCKHUNTER said and that will help some. But you really cant do that while utilizing the shoot through mesh
