Maverick Blinds review

Yesterday I mentioned I was going to do some product reviews here and there ,so here’s the 1st one. I decided to do a review on Maverick Blinds since I own a couple and the time of the year is right

On my hunting land I have a couple food plots that are big enough , have enough variety that someone has to be on them whenever we hunt there. These plots are magnets and deer are there all the time. I have a couple treestands set up around them and have had good luck hunting them. But let’s be honest about one thing , we aren’t gettin’ any younger and being comfortable is more and more attractive , especially when the weather isn’t the best. After years of thinking about buying permanent blinds I finally decided I was going to do it.

If you’ve looked around at the blinds available today you already know you can spend as much as you want on these things. The prices on some of these blinds today is out of this world , not to mention they’re more like being in the living room than in the woods. There was no way I was spending 4-5 grand on a blind , especially since I needed 2 of them. My research seemed to take forever and I can’t say it was all that enjoyable. There aren’t that many reviews on these blinds so I wasn’t that sure about what I was going to do. Along the way I always seemed to end up back at the Maverick Blinds website looking at their product. After buying 2 of these blinds I’m positive I made the right choice.

The 1st consideration I had when looking for a blind was to find something I didn’t have to spend my time taking care of. I wanted to  set it up and not have to  worry about it. That’s exactly what I have. The Maverick Blind is a 2 piece blind that bolts together at the center. All the locations for the bolts are already marked so there’s no guess-work. Naturally the hardware is included and the assembly isn’t that difficult. I did all the assembly work alone in my garage on both blinds one afternoon. Can’t tell you how long it took but I think it was roughly 4 or  5 beers if that gives you an idea. The model I bought is the “6 shooter” and it’s a great setup. The windows are all included in addition to the mounting hardware etc. They windows pop in easily and fit as well as you could hope for. The location of your setup will determine how the setup goes but I would guess most people put this thing together on site. I had to for both of mine and it wasn’t too difficult. I had a couple of guys helping and it went really quick since I already had the holes drilled out so the 2 pieces could be attached.

Both of my blinds are setup on platforms that are about 12′ high. This is where you will have to decide what works for your location , setting it on the ground or on a platform. If you go with the platform you can buy the hardware for building one from Maverick Blinds. I did it and glad I did , the corner brackets work great and the platforms are there for good I can guarantee that. If you take the time and spend the money to build a platform you will not regret it. As you can see in the picture my blind is setting on the edge of a plot and it’s well in the air. I hunt with a couple of windows open and can tell you I haven’t been “winded” yet. What amazes me more than anything is the amount of noise you can make inside the blind and deer don’t hear it even when they’re practically under the blind. The 6 shooter is big enough inside to shoot a bow with no problem. It takes some getting used to but I’ve done it and room is not an issue. I’m 5’11” and stand up inside these blinds with no problem.

Overall I have to say I’m as satisfied with these blinds as anything I’ve bought for hunting. The people are Maverick are really helpful , if you have questions they will get answers and soon. When I emailed them I received a response in a matter of a couple of hours from the owner. He even answered one of my emails after 9pm ! A couple of months after I bought my blinds the owner ,Chad Stoll , emailed me to ask if I was satisfied with my purchase. We don’t see that too often these days unfortunately.

So there ya have it , if you’re looking for a permanent blind I would advise you to give Maverick a long look. A good company , excellent product and people who stand behind it. We can’t ask for more than that. Good luck and thanks for stopping by.   mj
