SHOOT STRAIGHT AND MAY YOUR RUT BE LONG AND HARD
I use one every year, LOVE IT! i have the Ameristep Bone Collector blind, and it fits myself 6' tall, my 10 and 9 year old sons all at the same time with room to spare!
The only thing I would say is use caution when hunting from a ground blind during firearms season. Especially on public land. Not sure of your location but I know in Maryland you can use portable type stands on public properties. Hang on or ladder stands are allowed but must be removed at the end of the season. Of course then you have to worry about it being stolen but it may be a option. Also climbing stands could work.
Either way good luck and hunt safe.

LOOK IN TO HAVING A ORANGE FLAG OR SOMETHING SO THAT OTHER HUNTERS KNOW YOU ARE IN THERE AND I KNOW THAT THE MESH IS NOT MENT TO BE USED WITH FIRE ARMS. I HAVE HAD A FEW BLINDS AND LOVE HUNTING OUT OF THEM I WOULD RATHER BE IN THE TREE BUT THEY ARE A GREAT 2ND CHOICE IF YOU DONT HAVE OR LIKE TREE STANDS OR THERE IS NO TREE WHERE YOU WANT TO BE, PLUS IF IT RAINING OR SNOWING. GOOD LUCK

The Ameristep works great! I've used it once before and don't really have any complaints. They have a bunch of different ones so you can chose what you want as far as size and color is concerned.
When I use a ground blind for deer hunting on Public land during firearms season, I always tie an old orange vest around the nearest tree as high up as I can reach. Make sure you tie it so it doesn't flap or it'll spook deer. You'd be surprised at how many yo-yo's I watch sneak up on that orange vest trying to figure out how it got tied around the tree. Most never even see me until they're within 20 or so yards. (brush your blinds in...)
i love using my ground blind for bp hunting. some companies actually make caps you can put on top of your ground blind that are blaze orange and fit tight and flush with your blind. ameristep has them i know that. i have one for my doghouse and it's kept me safe a few times.
