    Hunted out of A-X and Banded. Both have their pluses. I couldn't say anything bad about it.

    They definitely work when properly used. We use my brother's a lot.

    Yep I haven’t hunted out of a layout blind since I bought it a few years ago. I’ll find some pics

    10-4 on the properly used part!!!! Edge of a tree line, edge of sloughs, round bail fields maybe a tall weedy fence line. Couldn't pay me to put one out in a crop field unless there was standing corn in it!!

    Don't knock it until you've tried it. You might be surprised at the results.

    Been there, done that. That's why I said what I said. No it wasn't an Avian -X- Blind but have been in others like that and a bale blind also. Not a fan of sitting in a Condo in the middle of a field!!!

    A friend of mine took his Condo in one field and I took my layout too another. The fields were split by a county road with good number of birds in the flyway so there wasn't any issues of who was going too see more birds then the other!!

    Was done in a fair amount of time with my limit and he was having issues of birds flaring, flaring, and more flaring. My other friend with the bale blind, all we did on that hunt was bird watch!! Never again!!!:no
