Pictures of this mirror deer blind have been making their way around the net. From what I understand it is made out of plastic and metal and has 4 Plexiglass sides with mirror backing, plus a wooden roof. It supposedly weighs about 100 pounds and costs $1,000.
Brilliant idea, don’t you think? The mirrored sides reflect the surroundings for the ultimate camouflage hide. I hear the mirrors are angled just right toward the ground so that sunlight does not reflect off them.
Hmm, a thought: What if a doe walks close and sees herself? Would she flip out? I believe she might. What if a rutting buck sees his reflection? Would he charge himself and you in the blind? That could get interesting. One guy who has apparently tested this thing said yes, sometimes a buck does run in to his reflection and that makes him “easier to get.” I don’t know about that.
At 100 pounds this is not a portable blind. But if you hunt a farm where you set out permanent shooting houses this thing would be fun. It would be a blast to see how all sorts of game, from deer to squirrels to coyotes, reacted when they saw their reflections.
Would I try one? Yeah. Spend a grand for one? Nah. What about you?
BTW, they have a website with more pictures at mirrorhunting.com, but not much info yet.
