Bow, Crossbow yes, anything else no, muzzle blast will melt the plastic mesh and the designer will tell you so.OK I have been hunting for 20 years and never used a store bought ground blind. Now that my son is going on his second year hunting I bought us a new blind. I have a stupid question. The blind says it has shoot through mesh screen. does that really mean you shoot through the screen? I know it is a dumb question, but I am wondering if you shoot through it and if you do, what about all the holes?
