XP-1 Predator All
the advantages of a ground blind
Review blueprints to build
your own blind
The Turkey Pro Sez: "Years ago, well ahead of most
hunters and manufacturers, I discovered the advantages
of a ground blind for both turkey and deer hunting with gun or bow, and for photography.
Over the past several years, Rhino
Ground Blinds has earned a reputation as
a premier manufacturer of high
quality, effective, value-added, and cost effective blinds. Their
re-designed model, the XP-1 Predator All
incorporates all the features I demand in a high-quality blind. It meets my
high standards for functionality, quality, features, effectiveness, and
An XP-1 Predator All
Purpose Deception is rapid to set up...about
7 SECONDS ! This is due to the popular 5-hub design. All rods
and parts stay in place and with a minute or two of practice, you can set it up
in 7 seconds. I also like the Predator large pattern camo material, which
helps make the blind disappear into any
environment. The quality of construction and materials are excellent.
Properly taken care of, I doubt you could wear it
out in a lifetime. There are many, many hub style blinds on the market
now. You get what you pay for. I have experimented with lower
cost models, and found them to be inferior and not worth even the low cost
I paid. Why you ask? I have had the cheap models completely
fade out in color...one in fact faded to a nice bright red color, a
moderate wind would constantly break rods in another (which are next to
impossible to replace), most have poorly made hubs that easily break.
Most of the cheap models are poorly thought out with respect to
designed placement, size, and closures.
The best thing about an XP-1 Predator All
Purpose Deception is its great shooting window flexibility....you can configure the windows to
fit any style of hunting and photography. If you want to shoot through the mesh
material....no problem. If you prefer to shoot
through a more traditional window, you have horizontal and triangle-shaped
ones to choose from. You can use the silent hook and loops and/ or
magnets to adjust the size and shape of the windows without making a
sound, something that is critical in order to not alert the sharp-eared
quarry. I strongly suggest that you configure a window shape and
size just enough to safely make your shot or operate your camera, and
try to keep the windows behind you closed, because if you don't,
you'll create movement which a turkey or deer can detect, and that may
spook them. Keep movement to a minimum.
Without a full coverage blind, a bow hunter has almost no chance to
bag turkeys consistently. And...you won't believe how well a blind like this will contain
your body odor when deer, antelope, or elk hunting. With a clean body, use of cover scent, and keeping the shooting
windows closed until you're ready for a shot, the critters with a super nose,
like that monster buck you want, will
normally not detect you, even when they are within 20 yards.
An XP-1 Predator All
great for taking people hunting who can't sit still....and it's great at
keeping the cold, rain, and wind away, thus improving your ability to endure the long wait
for game. Until you use a blind like this, you simply won't believe how well it
works and how close game will come. Using a blind, my average shot at gobblers
with bow and arrow is about 15 yards. Even with
the great Predator camo pattern, I still
recommend placing brush or tree limbs around the blind and in the brush
holders for further concealment and to break the
outline of the blind.
Set up your blind in a good
spring strut zone and I promise you excellent results and plenty of
turkey action! Same thing goes for fall deer hunting....big bucks
pay little attention to a blind like this."
