The GhostBlind® - "Not Seeing Is BelievingTM"

The GhostBlind® is to be used when the above are not reasonable for the hunting circumstances. Many factors have been taken into consideration when designing GhostBlind® including, portability, instantaneous setup and hunting, invisibility, comfort and safety. The GhostBlind® Predator is a (4 panel blind) with shoot through ports which allow the hunter to shoot from a seated position.
