Thus far, 2018 has been a pretty exciting year for the ground blind category. (See Jace Bauserman’s article on this year’s ground blind innovation here.) The category gets even more of a lift from the Rhino Blinds lineup.
This comprehensive blind lineup includes something for pretty much everyone. According to Rhino CEO Dan Reaser, the company has focused on packing its blinds with quality. “We packed so many features into our entire lineup — from our price point to our premium oversized — that you can’t buy your next blind without checking out Rhino first,” he said.
Those features include premium carbon rods, oversized hubs, brush loops and thicker Cordura canvas. A wet print process makes for a natural camo application and prevents glare. In addition, Rhino blinds are UV-treated, DWR-treated and antimicrobial-treated to prevent fading, dry rot and mold.
Finally, Rhino introduced a number of new blinds in Mossy Oak Break-Up Country for 2018.
Just one exceptional ground blind from Rhino is the Mossy Oak Break-Up Country Oversized blind, which retails for $390 and provides plenty of headroom and shooting space. With a high center height, this roomy blind allows anyone 6 feet 6 inches tall or shorter to stand up inside. The Mossy Oak Break-Up Country Oversized blind measures 7 feet 4 inches from hub to hub with 72×72 inches of floor space. And while this is a big blind that gives you room to spread out, it won’t weigh you down — this blind weighs just 27 pounds, so it’s easy to pack in to your ambush spot. (An oversized carrying bag with pack-style straps further helps in that regard.)
Like all Rhino blinds, the Mossy Oak Break-Up Country Oversized is easy to set up and take down, and the shoot-through netting with hook-and-loop attachment gives you the option to shoot through it (with most broadheads) or configure it silently.
