We all agree that the Harvey Allen Blind is the best we have hunted from...

“We have 6 guys and my daughter in our hunting camp. With 480 acres, we cover a lot of ground and have many blinds. After trying just about all of them, we all agree that the Harvey Allen Blind is the best we have hunted from. That’s why we sold 10 of the other blinds and have replaced them with Harvey Allen Blinds”

 

Every year I froze in the wind — this year I hunted from a Harvey Allen Blind...

“I have always just hunted from home-made stands and from ladder stands. Every year I froze in the wind. This year I hunted from a Harvey Allen Blind and while everyone else was back inside the cabin warming up, I shot a 10 pointer at 80 yards”.

Can't say enough about you guys...

“Can’t say enough about you guys. Charlie, Al, Chief and Ron are great installation guys. We had a lot of fun that day and couldn’t believe that you could set up 5 Blinds in one day”.

 

I couldn’t believe it when my wife actually came hunting with me...

“Thank you so much for the awesome Blind. My wife refused to hunt with me for 30 years. This year, we bought a Harvey Allen Blind at the Minnesota State Fair which you guys came out and installed in October. I couldn’t believe it when my wife actually came hunting with me this season and watched me shoot a nice 8 pointer”

I have literally hunted from every kind of blind there is...

“I work for a large firearms company and have had the great fortune of hunting all over the world. I have literally hunted from every kind of blind there is. I have been in huge blinds that are built like houses that are 30 feet in the air. I’ve hunted from rickety platforms that are 3 feet off the ground. Ladder stands, bolt-on stands, pop-up blinds, log blinds and even from blinds that are dug into the ground. I hunted from blinds on top of trucks and even from blinds that are made of rope. I was walking by your Blinds at the Minnesota State Fair and wanted to take a look. I can tell you from experience that there is nothing else like this anywhere that I have ever seen. You have a great product and will be very successful in the hunting industry.”

 

We started off with 3 Blinds and they worked great. Shot 5 deer out of them this year...

“We have 800 acres of hunting property. Over the years we have put out many blinds, ladder stands, blinds and even built our own stands in trees. We saw the Ad in Outdoor News and called to set up a time to come and see the Blind. It was great to actually see the manufacturing process for ourselves. Thanks for serving lunch. We started off with 3 Blinds and they worked great. Shot 5 deer out of them this year. We will definitely be replacing others in the future with Harvey Allen Blinds”.

 

I can’t say thanks enough. My dad shot a doe on opening day and strutted around for a week...

“My Dad and I hunted together since I was just a little kid. But, being in his late 70’s now he just couldn’t do it any longer and stopped going with us. When we saw your Blinds at the Minnesota State Fair, I immediately knew this would work. You guys were great on set-up day when my dad showed up and you asked him to tell you exactly where he wanted the Blind. The stair case with railings made it all possible. I can’t say thanks enough. My dad shot a doe on opening day and strutted around for a week”.

I wanted to pass you a note to tell you how pleased I am "again" with the service you gave me...

“I wanted to pass you a note to tell you how pleased I am "again" with the service you gave me and the final product that was easily set up. After I bought my father in law a Harvey Allen Blind last year and saw his response to the comfort and quality, I had to get one myself. I know my communication with you might have come off as I had some concerns with delivery and receiving all the components we needed. Well, I apologize for coming off that way. You have surpassed my expectations with your customer service, the quality of your team and the excellent quality of the Blind.  We had great communications with the delivery which made coordinating the man power for set up run smooth. The pieces were a perfect fit and we had all of the necessary bolts and screws.  With our season just around the corner I see a lot of prefabricated stands that are made of plastic and thin steel construction and they are asking for sometimes more than what your Blinds are priced at. You have by far the best value of any other competitor.  I would tell anyone that if they want comfort, quality and customer service that is the best, they should get a Blind from you. Thank you and good luck this season”.

 

I wouldn’t have been in the woods to shoot him if I wasn’t in my Blind...

“My hunting buddies made a lot of fun at my expense for purchasing a Harvey Allen Blind. Things like, that’s not hunting and if you can’t take the weather then maybe you should bowl instead. Well, I got the last laugh. Opening weekend the wind was blowing 30 mph. All of my buddies went home Sunday morning because of the conditions. Then it snowed 16” on Monday and the temperature dropped to 5 degrees the second weekend. Only two of my buddies showed up and they stayed in the camper most of the time. I not only hunted everyday “All-Day” but I shot my first 11 point buck ever. I wouldn’t have been in the woods to shoot him if I wasn’t in my Blind.”

 I wished we had just purchased from Harvey Allen again instead...

“I purchased a couple of Blinds from you a few years ago. I must admit that I thought they were pretty expensive. So, last year I bought some pre-fab plastic units from a big box retailer that were less expensive and set them up ourselves in a couple of good spots. I wished we had just purchased from Harvey Allen again instead. The pre-fab units were noisy, had less room inside, they are not as solid as your Blinds, they are much harder to get into and out of and the windows are pretty small. We are going to sell them this summer and get a couple of Blinds from you to replace them”.

My wife shot an 8 pointer opening morning from her Blind and our grandson shot...

“I saw your ad in Outdoor News about your Open House and my wife and I decided to make the trip. What a treat to have met and talked to Ron Schara. He talked to us just like we were longtime friends. He has great stories about fishing and deer hunting and my favorite turkey hunting. My wife and I were very impressed with your operation. It is always interesting to see when someone takes an idea and turns it into a business. You have a very professional Showroom and the smoked pulled pork sandwiches were amazing. The manufacturing facilities were much more organized than I was expecting. We purchased three Blinds that day. Sorry about the confusion on the set-up day scheduling. When the set-up day came, you guys were totally prepared and had everything you needed to get the job done. You guys have this down to a smooth operation. All three Blinds were done by 3:00 and they were perfect. My wife shot an 8 pointer opening morning from her Blind and our grandson shot his 8 pointer the next day. I took a little more time and finally shot a doe on the last day of the season. We really appreciate all of your work and love the Blinds”

My brother and I literally researched all the hunting blinds we could find...

“My brother and I literally researched all the hunting blinds we could find. We went a looked at a bunch at hunting and sports shows. Last year we purchased the 280 acres next to our 120 acres. Now our hunting group has grown to include our wives, sons and daughters. We came to your Showroom and looked at your Blinds and then the manufacturing process and saw how they are made. We purchased three Blinds from you the first year and had you come out and install them. Then we purchased three more last year and had you install them at 12 feet instead of 10 feet. This year, we plan on having you build us two more Blinds that will be 10 feet and then one big custom Blind that will be 6x10 but will only be 6 feet from the ground. Your Blinds are by far the best we’ve seen”.

My wife hunted out of her Blind every day and she finally shot a 6 pointer...

“We loved the two Blinds that we got from you last season. I brought my 12 year old grandson with me this year on opening morning. It was a very cold morning and the wind was blowing pretty good. The best thing ever was to be with my grandson inside the Blind and we were both totally comfortable. We ate lunch around 11:00 am and right after we got done my grandson saw a deer moving in the woods and opened the window and got ready. It was a nice 10 point buck coming in to sniff the mock scrape and drip bag that you recommended we put out. He got the buck with one shot. My wife hunted out of her Blind every day and she finally shot a 6 pointer on Thanksgiving Day. Now, that we have hunted from your Blinds, we want to finish the plan that we talked about and get the other three Blinds to install this year.”

I purchased four Blinds from you 5 years ago...

“I purchased four Blinds from you 5 years ago. We installed them on our 280 acre farm. We purchased the neighboring 260 acres last fall. I want to purchase another four Blinds from you this year. They are the easiest to install and I really like the deck entry.  Can we get them in July?”

You guys built a 6’ staircase for me because I can’t really climb ladders...

“Dear Harvey Allen, I ordered my Blind at the Minnesota State Fair. I was in a wheelchair at the time going through chemo. You guys built a 6’ staircase for me because I can’t really climb ladders. I counted the days until opening day. I didn’t see anything on opening day but I shot a doe on the second day. Just wanted to say thanks”.

A note to say how proud we are of you and the hunting blinds that you make for the Disabled Vets...

“Dear Charlie, I just wanted to send you a note to say how proud we are of you and the hunting blinds that you make for the Disabled Vets. If we had the money to build 20 of them we would send it to you and help you guys go out and install them. If there is anything we can do to help get more of these blinds out there, just let us know. Keep up the great work. There should be more companies like yours doing this type of thing”

Glen, Madison WI

I had not gone hunting in many years because it is just too painful and I cannot get around very well...

“I am a Vietnam Vet and was in a bad car accident 10 years ago. I walk with a cane in each arm. I had not gone hunting in many years because it is just too painful and I cannot get around very well. My wife found your company on her computer. We came to your factory and looked at your blinds. We purchased 40 acres of hunting land last year and we got a blind from you. Both of us got a deer this year and we excited for next year already. Thanks for making it”

We really liked that your Blind is just like something we would make on our own...

“In my real estate business I see a lot of hunting property with a lot of different hunting stands and hunting blinds. I have built a lot of homes over the years as well. So, when it came time for us to add some more blinds on our hunting land, we really looked at them all. We talked about building our own but who has time any more for that. We really liked that your Blind is just like something we would make on our own but with the steel base. Plus, we can have all that we need for a Blind at 12’ for only $2,400 it makes the decision really simple. So, we need three”.
