Hunt Outside the Box

Ameristep’s new Distorter™ Blind changes the very shape of concealment while maximizing interior utility

Plano, IL (September 2018) – Today’s ground blind has a five-hub design that makes it efficient to build, transport, set-up and hunt from. Such efficiencies have their consequences – mainly a boxy

profile that often causes alarm when viewed by the inherently suspicious eyes of deer, turkeys and other game animals.

Ameristep’s all-new Distorter™ ground blind utilizes never-before-seen, kick-out technology to offer hunters a high performance hub blind with next-level benefits both inside and out. On the outside, it creates a unique silhouette that conceals better than typical square blinds by blending into the environment more effectively. Inside, Distorter™ opens up a whole new world of useful space for up to three hunters and their gear.

Inside the silent-hinge door, Distorter’s three unique floor kick-outs provide additional storage space for bulky equipment like packs and camera tripods. All three floor kick-outs have an attached floor and sewn-in shelves to keep critical gear dry and at the ready. Storing such items inside the kick-outs puts an end to tripping over gear while providing improved access to Distorter’s versatile, hunter-friendly windows. Up top, dual roof kick-outs add height where it’s needed most, creating a welcomed increase in headroom for standing and enhanced visibility. Even the blind’s wrap-style carrying sling delivers value-added utility, serving double duty as a handy, hanging storage system.

Creative geometry and efficient use of space aside, the all-new Distorter™ offers heaps of additional hunt-elevating performance features, courtesy of industry-leading Ameristep design and engineering.

Exterior features include a heavy-duty 300D fabric shell finished in stealthy new Realtree Edge™ or workmanlike Mossy Oak Break-Up Country® camo. The illusion continues with Distorter’s organically shaped windows. These bow- and crossbow-friendly windows increase concealment through a lack of hard edges and feature silent mesh window covers and window flaps for fast, quiet and simple adjustment. 3D Edge ReLeaf™ trim completes the vanishing act by breaking up hard lines with a leafy texture. Inside, a generous 104-inch-by-84-inch footprint and 75-inch shooting width allows ample space for up to three people to disappear against Distorter’s stealthy Shadowguard™ interior.
