Whitetail Journal’s Quick Look: 2018 Treestands and Blinds

Treestands and hunting blinds are about sitting still. So before we take a quick look at Whitetail Journal’s review of what’s new, here’s a quote to inspire:

“It is easy in the world to live after the world's opinion; it is easy in solitude to live after our own; but the great man is he who in the midst of the crowd keeps with perfect sweetness the independence of solitude.” — Ralph Waldo Emerson

NAP Mantis

The new Mantis 2- and 3-hub blinds from New Archery Products have an innovation unlike any in recent years: a weird shape! This unique design of the large blinds isn’t a mistake, though. The interior slope and design offer better concealment possibilities along with your added natural vegetation. Brush in the 38-square-foot 2-hub or 48-square-foot 3-hub blind and you’ll be ready for hunting anytime of the season, even with multiple hunters. MSRP: $199 and $299  Info: www.NewArchery.com


Summit Viper Steel

Designed on the award-winning Viper SD, the Summit Viper Steel uses steel in the construction to create a durable, long-lasting stand for year-round hunting. The Viper Steel has a brown powder-coat finish and thicker seat cushion for better comfort during long sits. The steel construction provides all the benefits of the aluminum stand but in a more economical package. Whether you’re climbing in early season or late winter, the Viper Steel will be ready. MSRP: $199.99  Info: www.SummitStands.com/viperr-steel

Primos SurroundView


Hunters for years have used and appreciated the Primos Double Bull ground blind, but the new SurroundView with 360-degree camouflaged vision is turning heads. That’s right, camouflaged vision. Hunters inside can see what’s going on outside the blind thanks to the SurroundView band of material around the blind. But whatever’s outside can’t see inside, so deer, turkeys or other game seeing your form or shadows are a thing of the past.

The fabric has thousands of small holes and from the outside, the camo print and natural light force human and animal eyes to focus on the camo, making the holes invisible. On the inside, the black print and darkened interior allow your eyes to focus on the holes, so you see through the fabric. MSRP: $499  Info: www.Primos.com
