Do you trust shooting an arrow through the mesh in a ground blind when bowhunting?

    I would not trust a mesh net either!! It has to affect your arrow at least a little.

    No! If you pull to the side at the shot, your shot is gonna be way off.

    Yeah I haven't had a chance to actually do it but the guys I know who have have had problems. One of my friends gut shot a buck at about 25 when he shot through the mesh, he said it should have been and easy shot but the mesh plus some buck fever through off the shot.

    I agree with everyone... no mechanicals only fixed blades, make sure your window is open enough so you don't shoot through it, and my blind says not to shoot a gun through it or it will catch fire.

    I have shot my compound through it but when I shot my recurve through it the arrow lost alot of its energy and fell short of the doe.

    No problems, but I use a fixed blade. Never tried it with mechanicals.

    There's no way that I would risk shooting through the window, too many things that could go wrong.

    No. I do not trust it. I have the windows completely open when I shoot.

    I've shot through the screen windows on mine in practice and seemed to do fine. One thing bad that did happen to me once; I was looking through the peep down to my pin seeing my target just perfect BUT the arrow is 2 or so inches below the pins and when I released, the arrow passed through the solid fabric below the bottom edge of the window!

    I've always thought bowhunting through a blind is risky. I just dont like the idea of shooting from inside a structure.
