Slip system DecoyThe Elk Mountain Slip System is a blind, decoy, monopod,  and trekking pole that help you to set up and slip in with the kind of protection needed to get close to game.  I am the kind of hunter that loves to hunt from the ground versus a tree stand and that is one of the reasons I love hunting mule deer, whitetail and predators in the canyons here in Nebraska.  You can see a long way and the animals can see you so having a quality blind to help you is an important asset.  The slip system from Elk Mountain fits the bill for me because it is a simple system that is light, easy to use and it works well.

I used this blind all season hunting turkey here in Nebraska and I had hens around me all season that never once paid attention to me, a big fat doe that walked in close to 10 yards from me curious about the deer on the front of the blind and a few hunters who walked right up on me without even seeing the blind.  I never did get myself a big tom but I hunted public land all year versus heading out to the ranch in Western Nebraska and the birds and I had several great days together but we just never connected.

What I liked best about this set up is that the entire things is a hard core umbrella that is lightning fast to set up and deploy and the slip cover design is set up to allow you to change the slip cover quickly and easily to work in a large variety of situations.  The entire system is also an extremely reasonable price of $89.95 and adding additional decoy and camo slips are only $34.95.  The variety of these covers is pretty extensive and I really like that they have a Moo Cow decoy coming here soon.  I used the Deer Decoy during turkey season and the turkey’s took a look at it and pretty much ignored it.  I am going to be using that same decoy coming up here at the end of June for some predator hunting out on the ranch that we hunt.

The Slip system allows you to use the blind with a camera or you can use the same attachment as a monopod to shoot off.  Since I already have a pretty good set up with my bipod, I use the set up for my camera and it works extremely well.  In high winds the system has held up extremely well and I have had no issues in gusts up to 25mph here in big wind country.

I recommend the slip system and I am going to keep one as a valuable part of my gear and I look forward to seeing being able to buy that Moo Cow slip cover for use on the ranch that I hunt.
