PLANO, IL (August 16, 2016) – The senses of the North American whitetail and wild turkey are highly evolved. Their uncanny abilities to detect predators are astonishing and must be respected. Anyone who’s hunted either of these wary game animals has likely learned this the hard way – by spooking so many deer and turkeys they’ve lost count.
A successful hunter must beat the eyes, ears and nose of the game he or she pursues, and spends a lot of time and money addressing the issues of all-around concealment. Camouflage and various scent control products are all standard aspects of the game, but wouldn’t it be nice if there was a way to take multi-sensory concealment to the next level?
The hunter-centric engineers at Ameristep lay awake at night pondering such conundrums and how to incorporate practical solutions into their ultimate ground blind designs. More often than not, they successfully convert all that insomnia-inspired, meditative thought into reality. One of their newest creations, the Ameristep Element Blind is exactly the kind of game changer we’ve come to expect from these ground-blind brainiacs.
The new Element brings all-around concealment to that fleeting “next level”. Yes, the bones of this blind are pure Ameristep, held true-to-shape by the brand’s incredibly tough Spider Hub System – a two-piece, stamped steel design that is famously steadfast and virtually indestructible. But, it’s what surrounds that ruggedly reliable frame that sets this blind apart.
The Element’s remarkable new NS3 Carbon Enhanced Fabric combines a quiet and dull, brushed micro-fiber exterior with a carbon-enhanced, black ShadowGuard interior laminate. Super soft and quiet inside and out, NS3 stands for no scent, no shine and no sound. It’s extraordinary not only because of the way it helps attenuate scent and sound, but also because its dull and non-reflective weave defies shine and accepts printing like no other blind fabric available. The result? The Element Blind’s Mossy Oak Break-Up Country camouflage finish stands out with incredible clarity, lending this blind unmatched hi-definition concealment. Of course, a row of sewn-in brush loops is provided around the Element’s perimeter just below the roofline for supplemental camouflage with local vegetation.
The Element’s shooting windows are laid out for maximum versatility. Large, main windows constructed of tight, shoot-through mesh are positioned in the center of each sidewall, while nifty gun ports facilitate covert barrel penetration on all four sides. Additionally, a pair of tall, vertical, shoot-through windows – perfect for bow hunters – are located in each corner. All windows attach to the openings via Velcro for a perfectly tight fit, and are easily replaceable.
