FAQs & Tech Tips
LOW RIDER II AND DRAKE RAIDER LAYOUT BLIND
Can the blind be submerged in water?
Our blind is water resistant and can handle sitting in SOME standing water but we do not recommend submerging it.
I’ve been trying to put my blind together and can’t seem to do so correctly. Any help?
Tip 1: If it’s cold where you are – bring the blind inside to warm up. The fabric is already stiff and when it’s cold it makes it very difficult to work with.
Tip 2: The corners of the blind frame located just above where your knee and shin sit are supposed to be covered with fabric.
If you’re still stumped please email pictures here (hyperlink to email@example.com) and we’ll help you figure out what’s wrong!
Does the blind hide well in…?
Yes, absolutely! We have a great team of hunters who have tested our blinds all over the country and each one has had outstanding results.
Where do I put my gun if I’m hunting in the Drake Raider Layout Blind?
We recommend setting the gun beside you or across your lap. DO NOT put the gun inside the blind with you.

If I want to leave bases on my goose decoys, which bag should I buy?

What are the poles for on the Gunslinger, Long Haul and Tanker XL Decoy Bags?
The poles included in each of our decoy bags are meant to keep the bag sturdy when open. Underneath the buckle at each of the bag’s four corners is a slot to slide a pole in.
ALL FLOATING BAGS AND GUN CASES
All floating bags and cases are designed to float if thrown overboard or dropped into water. We do not recommend submerging the bags or floating them for long periods of time.
Does the Shell Shocker XLT Blind Bag or the Lock & Load Blind Bag have a hard bottom?
No, but they both have a rubber coated bottom to help ensure water and moisture stay out.
