Yes, the DB is $300 closer to $400. Great blinds but not in your budget. You may be able to find an Ameristep Brickhouse for $100 on sale. They are usually $149 and i have hunted out of one for a few years. I saw one on sale for $99 at the end of last season and picked it up as an extra.

They are a hub style blind and a good buy at the $99 - $149 range
would the amerstep beickhouse work good for bowhunting as well?

Mossbergman11,
Yes, It will work very well for bow hunting. I set the brickhouse up a couple of weeks before bow starts, brush it in, and i'm set for the season. It hasground stakes and tie downs. It has plenty of room for 1 bowhunter or 2 gun hunters.
Get yourself one of those camp style chairs with a back but no arms.

Click on the link that dmen sent on this topic a few posts back. That is very similar in design to the brickhouse.

I have the Ameristep doghouse blind and like it very well.I never leave mine set up over night or leave them in the woods out of fear someone will steal it,so i take it home every time i use it.Alot of people will say that you have to set it up and leave it set up for a few weeks for the deer to get used to it.All i have to say is not true.As long as it is concealed and has good back brush to break it up,your good to go!I took a 3.5 year old 8pt this year and a Bobcat.Set the blind up before sunrise and got in it and about 8am bobcat comes out no 30 yds from me on a logging road and turns and glances at me and then starts walking away.Well he didn't get to far!I'd check the doghouse blind out if i were you,really roomy to.

Definetly look at the GroundMax. I have the deluxe and I just love it. I have used it for a few years now and it is super easy to setup and for the price you can't beat it!
