Deer Blind for Rifle season?

I am trying to keep my daughter interested in hunting. She enjoys deer hunting and has given up on small game. Do you use portable blinds for deer during rifle season? I was hoping to make deer hunting this year a little nicer without all the weather issues. Which blinds are good if you use them? Thank you and have a safe hunting season.

    I have the ameristep popup i think its called the dog house. I bought an orange camo top for it on ebay for $20. If i use it in rifle, it gets the top for sure.

    (to sugarfuzz) LOL.. did you see where the deer went. I do stupid stuff like that at times too. Even if you thought about what might happen then still do it to see. I picked up a new scope for my gun one rainy day and a buddy a me couldnt resist tring it out or sighting it in. I got a target set up in the backyard but i didnt want to go outside and get my gun, new scope, and myself all wet. So I figured ahh lets just shoot off the back porch (enclosed). I thought if I kept my barrel out the window far enough it wouldnt be all that loud. (wrong) The window just about shattered.
     
    To get back on topic. Yes blinds are a great way to get the weather off you. Are you looking to get one just to keep the weather off you or to get a long time use out of. Anything even cheap will get the weather off you and make you more comfortable. Just knocking down the breeze and something to keep the flurries out of the back of your coat does wonders on comfortablilty. If your something that will last a while, look for a heavy duty frame. The cloth isnt as important and easy to fix if you get a tear or what not. But getting on with a chincy frame wont last long. Ive seen quite a few of my buddies break theirs already while having difficulties setting them up. which easy setup is something big to look for also. The yukon dispatcher isnt to bad of a deal for the price (around $100)

    If you are going to use a tent blind make sure you have plenting of blaze on it making it visable 360 degrees. Take no chance with having your kid with you.. GOOD LUCK AND BE SAFE
