    Thats an interesting concept.

    I wonder what the "glare factor" and weight would be?

    i could see some problems if a buck saw his reflection in that.....and charged it!

    should be a killer on turkeys though.

    it weighs 100lbs. Supposedly the angle at which the mirrors are set reduces glare...idk. I talked to the manufacturer last week & they're developing a more bow-friendly model. The one you see on this thread costs like $1100.

    Interesting. I have one of those mirror shields but have yet to actaully use it. I bring it with when I go pronghorn hunting, but weather has cooperated last couple years and sitting over a water hole has produced the best results.

    It would be fun to watch how game reacts to the blind. Maybe it'll keep the cows away during spring turkey hunts.

    I've thought about setting up behind a large mirror, but the logistics seemed overwhelming, so it never got past the "Day Dream at a Red traffic Light" stage.
    OK, so my comment didn't add any significant wisdom to this discussion. But it DID up my post count, and pretty soon I will be regarded as a wise, experienced expert based on that alone.

    I have something like that. It's called the Stalker Shield Mirror Blind, It's an approximately 3'x5' mylar mirror. To avoid glare you have to make sure the sun is not to the front of the blind and tilt it slightly downward to reflect the ground. I bought it to hunt late season deer in a cottonwood planting where the trees were too small for a stand and a regular ground blind stuck out too much. The mirror worked really well.

    Better put it under a blue light cause Im pretty sure those things reflect UV colors... or something else negative. I just wanna be the first to put them down. Cool idea though, Ive thought about stalking with a mirror before.

    What happened to good ole woodmanship?

    What's going to happen when you neighbor slips over and shoots the buck in the reflection?

    Those ghost blinds look awesome. They would work incredible for deer hunting, especially in a wide open field.

    I'm curious how they would do in the wind though. At least with a DB or other ground blind, you can stake it down. I didn't see where you could stake down a Ghost Blind. It could turn into a sail real quick!

    Bet that would be quite toasty waiting for goats on a early August afternoon!

    I believe those mirror boxes are $1,000+

    I saw them some time back on RT forum

    The Ghost Blind is a one sided deal about $100

    Just found it. Almost $1,200

    I'd rather die on my feet then live on my knees.

    I came into this world kicking, screaming, and covered in somebody else's blood, and i have no problem going out that way.

    As long as direct sunlight does not hit it square on, otherwise your spot would look like Times Square NY on New Year's

    look at this

    I saw this on one of the other threads. Someone got a 21lb turkey using one of these mirrored blinds. It was the ghostblind one. Really cool!
