For all types of hunting — from archery to rifles to shotguns — when purchasing a blind consider a model with a peak high enough to stand when bringing a bow to full draw, allow for a firearm to be aimed without the barrel protruding and spacious enough for a second hunter and gear —including a propane heater.

As more and more mentored and novice hunters join the ranks of those pursuing the “Big Three” of bear, deer and wild turkey in Pennsylvania, veteran hunters are seeing the benefits of blind hunting.

That is hunting from inside of ground blinds. For those going that route, the chances of filling a tag are increased with advance scouting, but success can also be a matter of good luck by being in the right place at the right time or patience.
