After an issue with shipping and communication, we finally got the stand. The stand had damage to the window and HuntingBlindsHQ was quick to assist and issue a partial credit.
The stand looks good otherwise.
We are excited to use the stand next hunting season.
1 year owned and absolutely love it. Like others have commented it does take some efforts to assemble but can be done 1 person. Fully satisfied and will purchase again
The size is good and the window layout is great, however the plastic walls and door is to thin and really flimsy in my opinion, it does stiffen up once it is assembled and tightened up. The rot proof floor is also not the same size as the blind either, it is 42” x 42” so it is a little snug with two people sitting side by side. There was no hardware to mount the blind to the frame in the box and all hardware included is zink coated so I replaced it all with stainless steel. The shooting shelves were also all 1” short so I had to make new ones. It is definitely at least a two person if not a three person job putting it together so make sure you have help. I definitely like the concept but I think it was poorly executed.
I bought three SC-1 in Summer 2023. From order to delivery was about four weeks and was worth it. All you need after delivery is some lag screws, four 4x4x8 and some 2x4’s for bracing and steps. We started putting al three of them up at 8:00am and finished by lunch. Big difference between last years homemade stand taking all day to get up and just braced. The SC-1’s had the leg slots already attached compared to purchasing them for a homemade stand at approximately $100.00. They were easily lifted by my tractor. I would recommend using 8ft legs for ease of placement. My tractor wouldn’t have been able to lift and move with 10ft legs. I have found nothing to complain about with these units. They are one piece molded. The only air that can possibly get in is around the plexiglass windows. All that you may want to do is add a mat/carpet to be quieter. They are tough as well as I dropped one while standing it up with no damage. If you have a tractor with forks it’s a one man show putting them up. As the title says they are Awesome especially for the price.
The Sportsman’s Condo are excellent products and Hunting Blinds HQ always have provided great customer service. Will buy again from here!!
I bought two of these and set them up, was so impressed that I bought two more. I built 8x10 platforms with decking planks so I'd be able to move around the assembly when bolting them together with less risk of falling and not having to work off of ladders. As suggested, I bolted in the windows before assembling, but before that I stood up the panels and spray painted them to match the surroundings (probably didn't matter to the deer, but I like my stands to blend in to the woods). After bolting them together I slid a cheap carpet under to seal off the planking seams before screwing the blind to the planking. This allowed for easy, quiet movement of a second hand office chair I put inside. I drilled a hole through the side to run a gas hose to a little buddy gas heater. I've been hunting steel ladder stands for 30 years in all weather, always liked to be out there in close connection to what is going on around me, but I'm telling you these stands are the nuts for midwest hunting with windy, cold, unpredictable weather. Won't be out in the rain, snow and wind any more. You can sit inside with pretty good visibility and just quietly lower the window when you see game, keep scent inside, although most of the time I leave the windows open to hear better, except when the wind is howling. You can hang hooks on the bolts that hold the sides together, for coats and possibles bags. Compare prices with other pre-assembled blinds, and figure out how you're going to get a premade blind up on a platform. These you can get up on your platform easily by section and put it together there; you really need two people to do it, but my wife and I easily assembled our blinds. Wait until the blind is fully assembled to screw the base flange to your platform, have to make sure the door functions properly. You might have to read and reread the door assembly instructions to get it right, but just take your time, everything is totally coordinated and properly pre-drilled, any problems were my fault for not reading instructions more carefully. All the necessary bolts and parts were there, with extras. We'll see how long they last, but I'm telling you that these are the best value for anyone who can turn a wrench and wants good quality. My son and grandson bowhunted out of one last year, enough room for two. Working with Hunting Blinds HQ and the shipping was absolutely painless. They should write me a check for this review, but I'm telling you that I'm very satisfied with these blinds.
This blind seems pretty well made and I really like the 5 sided design. Mine overlooks a food plot and I have a great view of the whole plot. The only complaint I have was that the two-piece roof was difficult to assemble because the plastic lip that’s supposed slip under the other piece was distorted so much I had to use a punch to line the holes up then put C clamps either side to squeeze it together. I also had to add additional holes and bolts in places where it still wanted to pucker out so the roof wouldn’t leak. Other than that it was fairly easy to assemble. I was able to do it by myself with no problems. I agree that the holes for the window clamps were a bit close to the window and the clamps could be slightly taller to allow for the foam weather seal. It’s going to be a heckuva lot easier and more comfortable than freezing in a tree stand. I’m getting too old for that (70).
Great product for the money! Very well built and excellent design. I am definitely going to order another one. Windows are super quiet when opening and closing. Door has a heavy duty lock system and seals perfectly from the elements of rain and snow.
Very easy to put together and set up. Windows open silently. I've had many different blinds this one is by far the best especially considering what other companies are charging for a hard permanent blind
I now own 3 of these box stands. 2 one person & 1 two person. Excellent product that I’m certain will last my lifetime.
Richard Helm I put it together with help you do need 2 people. It does seem solid and went together easily. I was happy that all the holes lined up. The two things that could improve is the door handels. They dont seem to work that well. The other thing is that some of the he's that the window fasteners screw into were to close to the windows. Overall I'm happy with the blind.
I’ve had my 120 for two years now. Worth EVERY penny. Perfect large and small pond boat.Exactly what the “fish doctor “ ordered. Slides in the water with ease. Very maneuverable by myself. Plenty of room for two large adults. Easy to transport, fitting perfectly in the bed of my Nissan pickup.Durable.very impressed of how stable this boat really is.YouTube video is TRUTH that it will NOT TURN OVER.( at least for the Bass Baby)Recommend. Highly recommend.
After researching other brands I decided on Bass Hunter. I fished in one 40 years ago and loved it so I decided to give it a try. As far as I’m concerned this is top of the line on the market!
I purchased the Bass Hunter 120 on Friday, and hit the water on Saturday morning. With 2 people, trolling motor, battery, depth finder and all the rods and tackle that go along with it we had no issues. Balance is perfect, tracking was straight and it only drafted 6 inches deep. I know I will enjoy this for years to come. Great people to deal with and awesome product at reasonable prices.
easily put together and stood up fairly easy.. sturdy and good quality.. wish there were curtaina u could but as an accesory for windows.. but other then that thrilled and cant wait for hunting season
I purchased one of these blinds for the 2021 hunting season. At first I thought maybe I had made a mistake after looking at the cost but after using it I can say eith 100% assurance that I made the right decision. The blind is well made and will last a long long time. My kids and I absolutely loved hunting out of it. I will be buying another one.
Blind is excellent. High enough to stand, quite and dark. Have had deer almost looking in the widow. Platform is a little bit of pain assembling, just too many parts but also works very well.
I have not yet had time to set it up but looks like it arrived in good shape and looking forward on using it.
The roof kit is high quality material. Stands up to the weather. Zippers are well sewn

NICE AND LIGHT TOO TWO PEOPLE CAN LOAD ON TRAILER TO MOVER TO WOODS SO 4 STARS MISSING THE 5TH FOR CARPET SCREWUP THANKS KEN P.A.
When I received this blind, I built a 4 x 6 platform,. I then built a wooden frame and mounted the prefabbed walls all around, Then I screwed the panels to the framing. did the same on the roof. I haven't cut the door out yet. On the windows they are framed all around with 2 x 3 framing and the windows are mounted to the framing with hinges. and barrel bolt latches to hold them up. This stand is on a 8' 4 x4 2 x6 platform. Puts the windows at appx 13' up. It is braced , ladder installed. just needs a little more bracing.I took it too the lease on top of my flatbed trailer so it with took winds of over 75 MPH. Already had wind of over 60 at the lease, was still standing as of 4/12/2021. I have not hunted it yet. Did not use any of the cable ties provided.Richard Bartosh.
