A Monster in the Woods

PLANO, IL (June 28, 2016) – This beast is no myth. Standing 7’ tall and leaving a 6’ by 6’ footprint, the new-for-2016 Ameristep Sanctuary Blind is confirmed to exist. The largest five-hub ground blind on the market, this monster will change the way families and friends hunt together, and must be seen and experienced to be fully appreciated.

This is no Frankenstein blind, cobbled together from spare bits and pieces. Rather, the mad scientists at Ameristep created this new behemoth from the ground up, utilizing notoriously strong offset cable hubs to support the Sanctuary’s extra-large walls – a system that allows for the largest and tallest windows possible, constructed of shoot-through mesh and easily configured for sitting or standing bow shots.

The Sanctuary’s high-tech skin is made from Ameristep’s proprietary Durashell Plus Fabric in the versatile Realtree Xtra camouflage pattern. This extremely durable, dull, woven-polyester fabric is lightweight, soft-to-the-touch, and stealthy quiet. It also boasts the industry’s highest print quality. Inside, a black Shadow Guard coating devours silhouettes.

Whether set up in the woods, on the edge of a food plot, or in the middle of a corn field, a ground blind this immense takes up a lot of real estate. But, like Bigfoot, the monstrous Sanctuary can disappear at will.  The Ameristep design team added patented Edge ReLeaf material at the corners and along the window frames to help hide the Sanctuary’s outline. In addition, two rows of sewn-in brush loops circle the blind’s perimeter – one row at the roof line and another below the windows – allowing hunters to maximize concealment by “brushing-out” the Sanctuary with natural vegetation to fit its surroundings. Backpack carrying case, stakes and tie down straps are included for easy transport, and for keeping this giant anchored in the field.
