Portable ground blinds are more popular than ever—for good reason. They appeal to older hunters who no longer want to climb trees and to parents looking to share the outdoors with a child while keeping everyone’s feet on terra firma. Ground blinds have utterly transformed turkey hunting for bowhunters, and for the rest of us they simply go where treestands can’t. Hub-style blinds—which stuff into a bag and have an integrated frame for fast setup and takedown—are the favorites in this category. We had four hunters test four models during turkey and deer seasons to see which offered the best portability, concealment, and utility.
