Assembly & Transport
Redneck’s hard-sided blinds are composed of rugged fiberglass and come preassembled. this means the only work required of the hunter is to build the platform and erect the blind in the field. Using only a socket set, cordless drill and basic hand tools, two men can easily assemble Redneck’s 10-foot platform in an hour or less. The 5-foot platform option can be put together in roughly half that time. Another 15-30 minutes is required to erect, level and anchor the blind, done with no fewer than three strong people. After that, it’s go time.
Composition & Quality
The Big Country is constructed from sealed fiberglass, a building material that’s proved to be highly durable. Features include a 2-inch roof overhang, a water drip-edge surrounding all the upper portions of the windows and a gel-coat finish. The composition and quality of the Big Country’s elevated platform is constructed of 3/16-inch powder-coated bent steel, and it features “X” bracing supports throughout. That combination prevents corrosion and ensures the blind will remain standing sturdy.
Sound & Scent Suppression
Egg-crate foam is present on the upper and lower sections of each panel of the Big country’s interior. Redneck started employing this specialized acoustic foam in 2017, replacing carpet panels, to suppress noise. The Big Country also has a closed-cell foam floor liner that’s about 3/8-inch thick and topped with all-weather carpet.
When it comes to scent suppression, Redneck offers an extremely effective solution. The Big Country features a high-quality rubber gasket that lines each window and door. When combined with the tempered automotive-glass windows and sealed fiberglass, escaping odors will not be a worry. Coincidentally, these features also help the Big Country blind stay pretty warm on frigid days.
Window & Door Options
As stated, tempered automative-glass windows come standard. Catering to bow and firearms hunters alike, each corner is built on a 45-degree angle and equipped with a 10×46-inch window with cam silk-screens in the interior to help conceal human movement.
Because there’s a full 80 inches of clearance inside the blind’s interior, bowhunters have room to stand up to shoot. Add three 34×14 inch horizontal windows and an 18×10-inch window inside of the sealed, lockable door in the back panel, and the blind offers nearly 360 degrees of visibility. An easy-pull string-and-loop system holds the windows open.
