What to Consider When Choosing an Elevated Blind

Is a Stand or Tower Included?

For a blind to be elevated, it must necessarily be mounted on some kind of stand or tower. Some blinds come with an appropriate stand, but for others, you’ll have to buy one or build one yourself. This gives you more versatility, of course, but it can be a hassle so make sure you think about it beforehand.

Easy Takedown or Durability?

Easy takedown and setup are usually a direct tradeoff with durability. In fact, the easiest blinds to take down are soft blinds that you can just fold up, but they don’t hold up to extreme weather all that well. On the other hand, if you want to leave a blind up on your property year round, you definitely want a hardshell blind made of polyethylene or metal.

Windows and Doors

You need a door or other entryway to get into the blind and windows to see out of and shoot from. On soft blinds, this might be a simple flap, while on hard blinds, it could be a fully locking door, a feature you should look for if you want to leave any gear in it long-term. 

As for windows, you have to keep in mind that you still want to be hidden. The best way is with one-way windows that allow you to see out but prevent any game from seeing in.


Lastly, it’s always great to get a blind in camo. Game animals can sometimes get suspicious of blinds that stand out against the terrain. Camo blinds are usually soft blinds, so if you’re considering a hard blind, at least try to find one in green, gray or some other inconspicuous color.

The 5 Best Elevated Hunting Blinds Reviewed

The Best Elevated Hunting Blind Overall: Guide Gear 6′ Tripod Hunting Tower Blind

This elevated blind comes with everything you need at a really impressive price point. It can actually be kind of hard to find an elevated blind that has both the stand and blind itself all in one, so this saves you a lot of time and hassle.

Not only that, but you get a big blind. The platform is 6’x6′ and can support 500 pounds. That’s probably enough for two hunters and gear, so it’s a good choice if you’re a social hunter.

Finally, despite the low price point, you get an array of important features. These include an effective camo design, six-foot shooting rail and one-way mesh that keeps you hidden but gives you a clear view of the surrounding terrain.

What we liked:

  • Blind and stand included
  • Big enough for multiple hunters 
  • Rated for up to 500 lbs
  • Camo cover
  • 6-ft shooting rail
  • 1-way mesh

What we didn’t:

  • Nothing!

Best Single Elevated Hunting Blind: Hughes HP-67000 The Enforcer Box Blind

If you don’t mind—or even prefer—being alone while you’re hunting, I recommend the Enforcer Box. It’s compact, easy to assemble and even has a locking door so you can leave gear inside. Keep in mind it doesn’t come with a stand, but it’s easy to mount on just about anything, including your own wooden frame.

Another downside of this model is that it doesn’t come in camo, but it is a forest green that blends in well. Plus, the finish and molded plastic construction holds up well in rough conditions, so it’s good for whitetail season in northern and midwestern climates.

What we liked:

  • Easy to transport and assemble
  • Locking door
  • Versatile mounting
  • Durable molded plastic

What we didn’t:

  • No base or stand included
  • No camo finish

Best Double Elevated Hunting Blind: Hughes HP-67001 The Clubhouse Blind

The Clubhouse is basically the Enforcer Box, just bigger with plenty of room for multiple hunters. In fact, it’s eight feet long and over four feet wide. It has the same molded plastic construction as its little sibling and can endure rough conditions, even heavy snowfall.

What we liked:

  • Big and spacious
  • Easy to transport and assemble
  • Locking door
  • Versatile mounting
  • Durable molded plastic

What we didn’t:

  • No base or stand included
  • No camo finish

Best Long-Term Elevated Hunting Blind: Sportsman’s Condo SC3

The main reason the SC3 makes the list of best elevated hunting blinds is its tough polyethylene construction. This makes it a great choice for those who have hunting property and what to leave an elevated blind out year round so they don’t have to worry about it.

The SC3 is also nice in that it comes with a stand already, though it’s not particularly tall, just a few inches. You can increase the height if you want, but you’ll have to build your own stand.

What we liked:

  • Durable polyethylene construction
  • Year-round use
  • Stand feet included
  • Improved hunting shelf

What we didn’t:

  • Heavy
  • No camo finish

Best Tree Stand Blind: Millennium Treestands Blind

An easy—not to mention cheap—way to get an elevated blind is to just install a blind kit on a tree stand. I recommend the Millennium Treestand Blind, especially if you have a Millennium ladder tree stand. It’s easy to install and is made of a thick material that can keep the wind off you and doesn’t start to mold when it gets wet.

Obviously as a tree stand blind, it’s pretty compact, but it does have customizable window and entry specifications. Most of all, I like the camo covering that really maximizes your concealment high up.

What we liked:

  • Compatible with Millennium tree stands
  • Easy to install
  • Heavy-duty material
  • Mildew resistant
  • Customizable windows and entry
  • Camo design

What we didn’t:

  • Limited compatibility
  • Small size
  • Not fully water resistant
