Welcome fellow hunters!

I was fortunate to grow up hunting, fishing and trapping in my home state of Wisconsin. I have enjoyed all of my time outdoors, but I must confess the mature whitetail deer has commanded most of my attention over the last thirty years. 

I have been hunting whitetails since the age of 14 and have had a lot of success hunting from a tree stand. I have spent about 90% of my hunting time in a tree. After watching a friend fall eighteen feet while installing a tree stand (while wearing a safety harness), I began looking for a better option. I doubted my ability to kill big bucks from the ground even though my two biggest bucks were taken while I was hunting there. After doing some research I felt better when I learned that 8 of the top 10 B&C typicals of all time were harvested with various methods from the ground. 

With this research and my personal experience, I realized that I needed to get better at hunting from the ground. Tent and box blinds didn't provide the quality hunting experience I craved. My frustration led me to invent the In Ground Blind, which has many advantages for those times when stand hunting is most productive.

Hunting from the ground is the most challenging (and rewarding) way to harvest an animal.  It can take a long time to get good at it. The animals we pursue have a lot of advantages.  I have developed some tools that level the playing field for the hunter, and cut years of mistakes out of the learning curve.  I offer them to you so you can get out of the trees too!

All of our products have a one-year satisfaction guarantee.  This means you can try a product this hunting season, and if you don't like it, just return it for your money back. You don't find that offer everywhere! 

May you find enjoyment in each day, and reward in your next hunt!
