    If you can wait till after the season , Cabelas usually puts their on sale,which is when I bought mine...A layout blind is something you need to see in person and even sit/lie down in and see if its big enough for you. Plus you need to see how well it folds up and transports in to your location...If I pack everything correctly I can walk the quarter mile in with my Cabelas First Flight Interceptor blind, a full pack of 3 dozen silos,gun and dog in one trip....leaving with birds is a two trip journey

    You must have missed it but layout blinds are illegal, oh wait, that's for field trials not real life hunting situations. My club owns 3 that we can no longer use, they are Final Approach blinds I think.

    I haved a rig em right low rider layout blind. Its a new product this year and I really like it. Best feature is there are no pins to fool with and it pops right up in about 30 seconds in the field. They will have a snow cover for it next season. It retails for starting at 279.00 for solid kaki color and 299.00 for max 4 camo. I picked mine up in max 4 camo through cabelas for 199.00 shipped. Got to love cabela's.

    I'm using a Avery finisher. No issues at all. But I saw a two man layout a while ago, thought it would be nice to have for the extra space for gear and the dog. Not sure how well it would conceal though...it is pretty big.
