I recently got back into shooting a recurve and am getting a longbow. What I see though for ground blinds are all designed for guys who shoot a shorter bow. The tallest one I have seen is 71" and most are 68". Well, my bow now is 62" long and my longbow will be 64" long.

If any of you guys work for a company that makes blinds, you might pass this on... :D

There is at least one 78 inch blind on the market. I forget who makes it. I am shooting a 64 inch Toke Whip. I tried shooting out of my eight year old Double Bull today. Just enough room if I cant to about 30 to 40 degrees. I can still keep everything in an eight inch circle at 20 yards.

I have the Primos blind snow123geese mentioned. I think it's pretty ginormous. A person I hunt with was the one who turned me onto it and he is a recurve shooter. He loves it. I just got mine and haven't used it yet but setup and take down are pretty simple. I've hunted out of Ameristep blinds before and they also work. I haven't used anything near the size of the 90" one but I have liked the ones I have been in.

That's because you are using traditional gear, you are supposed to be out there hunting in buckskin breechclouts. :p :lol: :lol:

Seriously, there are several that would work for you. Here is another from Ameristep, the Dominator, it is 82" high. Very nice blind, I have it's shorter brother, the Intimidator and love it.

I really like that Ameristep Penthouse. I wasn't aware of the bigger ones. I have the big Cabelas book but they don't list those.

Thanks guys, I really appreciate this.

Oh and Huntin1,,,I use traditional gear because I don't need the "Techno-Bow" to drop a deer, just good ol natural intuition... :p :roll:

You sort of took the words out of my mouth, huntin1! I've been in a bit of a sarcastic mood of late and I almost jumped in...but you got it covered!

What kind of rock works best tied to the end of your arrow to drop those deer? :poke:

Pardon my fun, Del...I couldn't resist... :beer:

I believe DB makes a traditional archery ground blind for the added height.

I have a T2 that I shoot my 62" recurve out of, corner shots are easy, shooting out the front screen takes a lot of care not to catch my limb tips on the ground or the side of the blind.
