I asked the same question a month or so ago and got no response on it. Everyone advocated the Ameristep Doghouse. So that's what I got. Considering the price of 64.95 at Wingsupply.com, the quality is outstanding and I think its going to work great.

I bought the Hunter's Veiw WigWam for $50. It looks just like the Ameristep Doghouse. I like the camo pattern too. I want to use it with my kids.

I have a Hunter's View Waterfowler blind (some kind of grass camo) that I bought from the Sportsmansguide this past fall. It is pretty much identical in size and design in comparison to the standard Ameristep Doghouse. Fabric appears to be a canvas type material instead of the nylon of the Doghouse but other than that I can tell no real difference. Both blinds have provided quite a few hours of enjoyment for me. No complaints.

ok guys. i already have the dog house but i dont really like it if any of you have ever been in a double bull youll know what i am talking about. if you look at the dog house it has like the metal/plastic things that hold it up just around the edges were as the trophy den has hubs that pop out in the center of each wall and the roof which make it was more roomy and sturdy just look at a picture of each of them and you will see what i meen. so no one has tried this blind?

I've hunted from the Double Bull and agree its a superior product. But, it should be for $400 or more. I just don't use a ground blind often enough to justify that much money. I studied the web site and instructions and everything else on the Trophy Den when I was shopping for a new blind but couldn't find anyone who had actually used one or a local dealer who stocked it. If you look far enough on their web site you'll find it doesn't use hubs. Instead it uses some kind of a piece of hose-like tubing and velcro to hold the fiber glass rods together. Take a look at the Ameristep Brickhouse for a similar design. It has large aluminum hubs and you can mail order it in thier "Tangle" camo pattern for around $150. I concur that this style of blind is going to give more useable room than the Doghouse because of the straight up design of the walls and flatter roof line. Good luck.

so you are saying that the brick house is more like the double bull? would you say that the system on the hunters view didnt look very good form what you saw?

Take a look at the Ameristep Brickhouse for a similar design.
Now there is a blind that I would recommend if you are considering that type of structure. I, personally, have never used it out in the field but I have checked it out at Cabelas on several occasions. Seems very solid and sturdy...and would be my next blind purchase if I did not already have 4 already...

I have a friend that has one and he seems to like it just fine!
I have a D/B blind myself.......a bit pricey,but I think most times "You get what You pay for"!
With that said,I want to tell you guys about the Stealth bowholder......its a bit more pricey than the others,but this thing is so easy to pack along and use!
Between packing in my blind/decoys, and calls for turkey hunting Im pretty loaded down! I prefer a box or slate call, so a bowholder comes in very handy!
I bought one of the third hand bowholders and it worked fine,except it was a true pain in the butt to pack along. After I tore the bag that you store the D/B blind in by stuffing the bowholder in it......I said thats it,Im building one thats easy to pack along......with no nuts or bolts to loose and one that you can assemble in the dark while setting up on roosted birds!
The Stealth bowholder was born!!!!!
I really put alot of thought and time into the design in order to make it easy to assemble and takedown.....they are powdercoated for a lasting finish!
If you hunt from a blind or off the ground.......you would really like this piece of equipment! I have used mine for turkey,deer,antelope and elk hunting!
