Ultimate Guide to New Hunting Blinds for 2023 from ATA Show

Treestands get a lot of love from hunters. This makes sense. They have a lot to offer hunters. However, what they often lack is both protection from the elements and concealment. The blinds listed here—which I came across at the 2023 ATA Show—offer both in spades. And most are brand-spanking new for 2023.

Whether you're a fan of big permanent blinds set up on a field edge or collapsible, portable soft-sided models that you can run and gun with, there's something here that will fit the bill.

Banks Outdoors Stump Sequoia

This new 90-inch diameter blind from Banks Outdoors boasts more than 44 square feet of room and eight silent-swinging tinted framed windows, making this a perfect option for bow and gun hunters. It's also extremely durable and weather resistant due to a seamless polyethylene construction. The Sequoia is available as a base model, a complete accessory-equipped "Pro Hunter" option, a Scout ground blind or even an ice-fishing shelter. $4,799.00-$5,699.00 | banksoutdoors.com

Millennium Antler Shak 30-06 Ground Blind

Millennium Antler Shak

Designed for maximum visibility, concealment and comfort, the Antler Shak 30-06 ground blind features six Full-View mesh panels. These panels offer 180-degree panoramic views while preventing game animals from seeing into the blind. The interior and shooting windows are both blacked out for concealment, and the windows themselves are adjustable to fit the needs of gun, bow or crossbow hunters. They also make great customizable rests. The blind has ample space for multiple gun or bow hunters and is constructed of a quiet, water-resistant fabric covering a durable powder-coated steel frame. The Antler Shak also breaks down quickly for storage, so there's no need to leave it out in the elements in the off-season. Pricing Unavailable | millennium-outdoors.com


Barronett Blinds Wide Side 95

Barronett Blinds Wide Side 95

This portable hub-style blind lets two hunters sit side by side while keeping ample elbowroom. The blind has a silent and fully adjustable panoramic front shooting window that you can adjust on the fly in the field. The outer shell is water-resistant HD 150 Denier fabric, and the interior has a black coating for concealment, with a small peak rear window for additional viewing. Included with the blind is an oversized carry bag, ground stakes and tie-down ropes. Altogether it weighs 18 pounds. $209.99 | barronettblinds.com

Nukem Grab & Go Hunting Blind XL

ATA Nukem
Nukem Grab & Go Hunting Blind XL

This was one of the more intriguing blinds I came across at the ATA Show this year. It's a stake-free, lightweight, low-profile design that assembles and disassembles in under a minute and seems ideally suited for run-and-gun turkey hunting or any kind of highly mobile hunting. Before the show, I was unfamiliar with the original Nukem Grab & Go Hunting Blind, but the new XL model is, predictably, a larger version. While the original is primarily intended for hunters sitting on the ground, the new XL adjusts from 45 to 60 inches in height, so users can also hunt out of a chair. Unlike the original, it can also extend to over nine-feet wide to accommodate two hunters if needed. It has a 150 Denier Nylon construction, weighs only 3.5 pounds and collapses into a 38-inch long carrying case. It's available in True Timber HTC Green, True Timber Strata, Mossy Oak New Bottomland and Mossy Oak Obsession. $129.99 | nukemhunting.com

Rhino R180 See Through Blind

ATA Rhino
Rhino R180 See Through Blind

While not strictly new this year, the 180 See Through Blind from Rhino remains a solid, yet affordable option for hunters of all stripes. The see-through mesh offers an unobstructed 180-degree view in front of the blind while preventing game from seeing the hunter inside. Internal dimensions (58 inches by 58 inches of floor space) offer ample room to accommodate up to three hunters, while the five-hub design makes for rapid setup and takedown. The 16-pound blind has silent slide window technology for quiet in-the-field adjustments and an oversized zipper-less door for similarly discreet entry and exit. Finally, brush straps outside the R180 allow hunters to further brush in the blind with native vegetation as needed. $212.49 | rhinoblinds.com


Barronett Blinds Face-Off

Perfect for run-and-gun hunting, the new Face-Off portable blind weighs in at just 12 pounds and offers a height of between 48 and 64 inches and a total length of 129 inches. The 16 inches of height adjustment courtesy of heavy-duty adjustable ground stakes and an oversized ground skirt are perfect for adapting to differently sized hunters or uneven terrain. Windows feature noiseless toggle and loop attachments for quiet adjustments. Materials wise, the blind has heavy-duty two-layer bonded fabric for enduring the elements, as well as one-way see-through fabric window attachments to see your prey without it seeing you. $169.99 | barronettblinds.com

Primal Outdoors Bale Out Hay Bale Blind

ATA Primal Outdoors
Primal Outdoors Bale Out Hay Bale Blind

While built with waterfowl hunters in mind, this blind could also be used to hunt deer in the right environment. The Bale Out Hay Bale Blind has a 63-inch by 58-inch footprint and a height of 72 inches, meaning it has tons of space for hunters. It's supported with a heavy-duty steel frame that—while adding a bit of weight to carry (50 pounds)—does make for a solid structure. The 600-denier water-resistant shell contains nine zippered windows for 360 degrees of viewing, as well as two larger doors for entry. For the waterfowl crowd, meanwhile, there is also a spring-loaded 60-inch by 33-inch window with see-through mesh that is easy to open when it's time to call the shot. $400 | primaloutdoors.com




Orion Hunting Products 55

One of the most interesting new blinds I came across at the 2023 ATA Show was Orion Hunting Products' new 55 blind. Orion has a unique concept for their blinds, in that they are assembled by the user. Blinds feature individual panels made from aluminum (both exterior and interior) with foam insulation between the inside and outside layers, and each of these panels latches into the adjacent panel and the base of the blind. It's a neat process that the Orion folks demonstrated for me on the show floor, and they say it takes roughly 15 minutes to take one of their blinds from a truck bed to fully assembled in the field. All panels are sealed at the edges and where they meet the floor. The new 55 model is a 5-foot diameter, five-sided blind, and the base model comes with four horizontal gun windows. However, you can also swap panels with horizontal windows for panels with vertical windows if needed for bowhunting. $2,999 | huntorion.com

Greylight Daybreak Blind

ATA Greylight
Greylight Daybreak Blind

This neat ground blind is kind of a hybrid design that features both highly adjustable panoramic windows on one side and tall vertical windows on the other. The blind also has strategically placed one-way see-through vision panels and tight, silent, Velcro-free shoot-through screens. It has a silent-entry door, brush loops for adding more camouflage and a roof accessory mounting location for quickly attaching ground-blind accessories. It comes with an enclosed backpack to carry the blind and your equipment. $449.99 | greylightblinds.com

Primos Full Frontal One-Way See-Through Blind

ATA Primos
Primos Full Frontal One-Way See-Through Blind

This handy ground blind from Primos features two full panels of one-way see-through mesh, which fully conceals movement inside the blind while facilitating maximum visibility outside of it. Silent Slide Windows allow for easy adjustment and excellent concealment. They are completely silent to move, so you can adjust in the field as needed. The Assist Door System, meanwhile, offers easy and silent access, whether you're entering the blind or exiting it. Straps along the top ridges of windows allow you to brush the blind in with native vegetation, and it comes in a nice Veil camo. Its spacious dimensions (58 inches by 58 inches of floor space and 67 inches of height) permit two bowhunters or potentially more than two gun hunters, and the blind itself weighs 17 pounds with the bag and stakes. $199.99 | primos.com

Big enough to comfortably fit up to four adults, this blind has 46-inch-tall vertical windows, large oversized horizontal windows and a spacious 70-inch wide by 94-inch deep by 80-inch ceiling. It's a perfect blind option for bow, crossbow or gun hunting. If you need to sleep in the blind to catch a monster buck at first light, there's also ample room for a cot or air mattress. Windows feature tempered, automotive glass; the ceiling is insulated closed cell foam; the floor has a marine-carpeted foam liner; and walls are acoustical foam covered for sound control and insulation. Three consoles are pre-installed to organize gear, and there are built-in shelves and gun holders. The blind itself is made from long-lasting fiberglass and is available with deluxe 5- and 10-foot stands and deluxe 5- and 10-foot stairway systems. The stairway systems feature 3/16 powder coated bent steel to resist rusting, non-slip steps and handrails on both sides for safety. $3,999.99-$6,599.99 | redneckblinds.com

Barronett Blinds FourSight

Barronett Blinds FourSight blind

As its name suggests, the FourSight is a large blind with four one-way see-through panels. Game can't see in, but you can see out just fine through the mesh panels. The blind accommodates up to three hunters with a shooting width of 88 inches by 88 inches. The door also has a silent hinge for quiet entry. The corners are reinforced, and an OxHide two-layer fabric roof runs throughout. The frame, meanwhile, features extra-large, heavy-duty fiberglass poles and aluminum hubs for maximum durability. The blind's exterior has brush holders for attaching additional concealment, and the blind itself comes with a backpack carry bag with a gear pocket and a chair holder. It comes with All-Terrain stakes and tie-down ropes as well. $399.99 | barronettblinds.com

Greylight Twilight Blind

Blending elements of a true hard-sided blind with those of a soft-shell blind, the new Twilight comes wrapped in an insulated fabric with a 100-percent waterproof roof with fully taped seams up top. Within the blind, you'll find friction hinge windows that are weather-sealed heavy-duty plexiglass and feature multiple latches to ensure you have airtight, rattle-free windows. There's also a single-handed knob on each window, so you can easily lift it up or down while still holding your weapon. Like some soft-sided ground blinds, on the other hand, the Twilight has external vertical panels that quietly slide up or down to either block the window completely or adjust it to the exact size you need. The blind also has an ozone port should you like using an ozone machine to help reduce your scent. Lastly, it has a full-frame door that latches without any zippers for quiet entry. The Twilight blind is available as a ground blind or as a 10-foot tower blind. $1,299.99-$1,999.99 | greylightblinds.com

This spacious yet affordable blind has a 70-inch by 70-inch footprint and a 90-inch-tall roof height. The frame is solidly constructed using powder-coated steel and has a weight capacity of 500 pounds. Outside the blind’s rear entry door, it also has a reinforced mesh platform. The blind itself has a heavy-duty weather-resistant shell to keep the elements out. Inside, the blind offers a 360-degree view with adjustable large windows, and the bottom of the interior has full-size silent black floor mats. The new D-LUX blind has two tower options available: 5-foot or 10-foot. $1,351.97 | trophytreestands.com
