I respect the opinion of others in regards to the use of blinds. it seems there are many differant opinions from many of us on this subject. What i did not care for was the fact that anyone who stated an opinion on this post in favor of useing a blind for one reason or another seemed to get treated with indifferance which is not fair or adult in any manner. Some of you may have been able to get kids out there without a blind without problems and that is great. but not all children are the same. Times are not the same. With each year the numbers are not rising in our ranks like they did years ago. Each generation gets more techno savvy and the push for kids to succeed takes it's toll. As i had stated before, an arguement can be made about alot of the tools and gear we now use today in our hunting endevors. I seem to remember seeing heated debtes over the use of decoys or turkey dogs in these forums. I have seen it stated many times over in these forums that confidance is a major factor to the hunt! If someone has a disability or other factors to give reason to use a blind why is it wrong? TC Responded to this by bringing up how someone he knew got out in a wheelchair without a blind and got birds. Thats great! But everyone is not that guy. My Dad has only one hand. And he was dominant in the hand he lost. He taought himself how to shoot and do everything left handed. But he does not go around and look down on anyone who can't bounce back the way he did. because he knows hte hard road it is. When i first got into these forums pages I was so happy to find a place where guys could chat about this sport and trade stories and ideas to help eachother. Now anymore it seems like a place for people to vent and argue over things. And that my friends makes me sad! Can we please get back to just talking turkey and if you post a question of opinion from others don't get on a high horse because everyone does not share the same opinion as you do.

Awesome pics Steve and Earl
 
I see both sides of this argument and really dont give a crap either way. As stated earlier I hunted outta one once, and see it more as a disadvantage than an advantage for my style of hunting.
