They say love is blind. But what if you love your blind? I’m to hunting what Israeli supermodels are to nuclear particle physics, but I’m feeling the love for Primos’s Double Bull SurroundView Blind. (Press release below.) Two-way mirror technology? I’m in! Literally . . .
FLORA, Miss. -(Ammoland.com)- Primos Hunting, a leading innovator of game calls and hunting accessories, is set to announce a revolutionary new hunting blind to flagship the premium Double Bull brand.
This year, Double Bull introduces a brand new technology – SurroundView. This exclusive material has unique properties that allow it to function like a two-way mirror — hiding the hunter from the game outside the blind, but offering a full view without gaping windows.
“The basis of the technology is a special tiny pinhole pattern,” explained Jason Harris, Senior Product Manager for Double Bull. “Thousands of very small holes dot the fabric. On the outside, the camo print and natural light force human and animal eyes to focus on the camo, making the holes ‘invisible.’ On the inside, the black print and darkened interior allow your eyes to focus on the holes, so you see ‘through’ the fabric.”
Using the latest Apple ARKit technology, the SurroundView App allows consumers and trade professionals to experience an interactive Double Bull SurroundView blind at home, in the field, or even in the store. For the first time, hunters can “set up” their blind with just their phone to view shooting angles and concealment.
They can also experience the SurroundView product differences and experiment with window locations and shooting ports to view what they’ll see through all three models of SurroundView wherever they.
To download the App simply go to the iPhone App Store and search for SurroundView. An Android version will be available soon.
Primos, a Vista Outdoor brand, is one of the most recognizable and trusted names in hunting calls, attractants, trail cameras and accessories.

How effective are these monstrosities?
My intuition tells me that deer would see this new big blob and avoid it like the plague.
Now, if you could leave it up for a few months before hunting season in the location that you want to hunt, that would be a different story.
That’s a good question, to me.
I’ve heard drop traps are very effective on the piggies because they don’t look *up* for danger. If something like that is the same for Bambi, use it against her.
(Bambi had it coming. I heard she was *very* ‘popular’ during the rut… 😉 )
I’ve got an older model and it works extremely well. As long as the wind is in your favor.
You set it up weeks in advance of the season or hunt. They’re very effective for a gun hunt (concealment, scent control, you don’t have to be stock-still), but can be difficult to shoot a bow from. I have the Shack Attack Double Bull, awesome blind but the windows are too low. I still managed to harvest an 11-pt buck at about 25 yards with a bow, but it was a challenge. I have a Browning Phantom blind that’s much more user-friendly for all weapons than the Shack Attack.
The Primos Double Bull blinds are extremely high quality. Tuck a blind back in a corner, brush it in good to break up the profile, and game comes around right away. Very effective in certain situations, but I still prefer being 15-20 feet up a tree or tripod.
it’s thin fabric; just shoot through it for ultimate concealment
