Story:
We obtained the base Slip System and several Blind styles / Decoys from the great guys at Elk Mountain several months ago. We have used them on 2 Utah Turkey hunts, and on numerous scouting trips in Utah.
We will also be using the system on several upcoming Deer, Elk, and Antelope hunts in a variety of states. We will update this review as we pursue different big game species:
Ok, our Turkey Hunt in Utah.
We used the blind on multiple Turkey scouting trips, and on our actual archery hunt. We found the the system to be great for the trek into the hunting area. We were able to use it as a walking stick, now granted it is not the best trekking pole in the world, but it was adequate. We found the Slip system to be rugged and were able to push on it hard as we hiked. It held up to this well.
When arriving at our location we were able to quickly set up the system and deploy it in a very short amount of time. I actually prefer it to the Montana decoy system that I am used to using.
The system can be used with multiple decoy and blind options. For this hunt we chose to use the CAMO cover, as we did not want to get shot while hiding behind a turkey. We did use the turkey slip cover on a scouting trip, and it performed GREAT. The animals were attracted to the great looking Gobbler.
Out hunt found us using the blind to spot and stalk a group of turkeys...and this worked well. We were able to hold the blind in front of us, move in, and then jab the blind in the ground when we stopped.

We are anxious to try this system starting in August on several deer and elk hunts. I am confident that it will work well both as a decoy and as a blind.

We highly recommend the Elk Mountain Blind and Decoy System. It is well built, easy to use, and very importantly IT WORKS!

Best of Luck,

Well it's not a "real cow"...but it is the most photo-realistic decoy on the market. If you know of something that looks less "phoney"...I'd love to see it.

Best of Luck,
Jeff

Hey guys,
We just used this blind in Wyoming on an Antelope hunt. IT WORKED GREAT.
We were able to really close the distance with the cow blind.

Thanks guys, nice work!!!

Great review. I've been using the Elk Mountain Blind system since they started. I love the ease of use, portability. I have disabilities so carrying around a regular blind all on foot kills my back. I don't tree stand hunt.
