Now in its 17th year, readers may count on American Hunter’s Golden Bullseye Awards to denote excellence. Indeed, these days many companies knowingly strive to hit the mark—to produce innovative products that catch our attention. After all, any product worthy of our gold standard must meet or exceed American Hunter’s expectations of innovation—and they absolutely must provide hunters with value for their money.

2019 Gear of the Year: Primos Double Bull SurroundView 360 Hunting Blind
Hunters are gear junkies—there’s no denying the fact. Today, one of the most-used pieces of gear in any hunter’s kit includes a blind. In fact it has been reported that as much as 64 percent of hunters use one. So when a new blind hits the market, we’re intrigued.

Enter the Primos Double Bull SurroundView system. Three models are available: the 360, 270 and 180; each permits, as its name implies, 180- to 360-degree views.

Its secret is a see-through fabric. “Thousands of very small holes dot the fabric,” said Double Bull product manager Jason Harris (“First Look,” AmericanHunter.org, January 2018). “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.”

With SurroundView, hunters can spot all the movement they’d otherwise miss with traditional blinds yet remain concealed. They can forget about peeking out of windows occasionally … and spooking game standing next to them. MSRP: $499; primos.com.

Editor's Note: Winning products must be tested by the editors, meet or exceed expectations on innovation, and provide hunters and shooters with value for their money. NRA Publications presented the annual Golden Bullseye Awards at an invitation-only breakfast during the 2019 NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits in Indianapolis, Ind., Apr. 25-28.
