Question portable blinds

Hey all, I'm new to this forum but have been bowhunting for about 20 years. My problem is I have a pop-up blind manufactured by Hunter's View which I recieved as a gift two years ago. The roof supports were damaged during a wind storm and the blind is now usless. I have tried to contact the company by e-mail and by phone but get answering machine and no reply. Dose anyone know if the company is still in business or where I could find new roof supports?

I don't know about this company but I had a problem with a tent like that. If your cross braces are like a bow brace you can contact a local plastics company and buy some fiberglas rod material and make your own. They won't be collapesable but you will be able to use your blind. Just a thought.

I dont have a clue why you cant get in touch with them. Maybe the recall they had on all those treestands drove out of business. I went to their site and tried to click on some of their links that would allow you to order replacement parts but they did not work.

You can try this number. It was the one they issued when were handling the recalls for the treestand. Maybe someone live will answer there. (888) 878-0440. Good Luck and welcome to the site.

Thanks for the help. I called Dicks Sporting Goods where the blind was purchased and they had no information except they no longer carry Hunter's View products
