Mobile Box Blind Hunting | The Story of “Gnarles”
Mark and Terry Drury grew up hunting together from the time they were kids. As Drury Outdoors evolved, they needed to produce more content so they quit hunting together. Now, after a decade, Mark and Terry go on another hunt together out of a Muddy Bull box blind. In this action-packed episode, watch as Terry ends the story of an Iowa buck known as ‘Gnarles.’ This harvest is only testament to the ability of the Drury brothers to integrate a mobile box blind hunting strategy into their tactics.
The Drury brothers first revealed their mobile box blind hunting strategy in the last #MuddyMoment. Mark employed the strategy to connect with a buck known as “Danger”, a 217 2/8” whitetail!
From #MuddyMoment 4 | Mark Drury Goes Mobile to Harvest a Monster:Based off of trail camera data from numerous cameras in and around danger’s core area, Mark Drury made a move. Mark identified the stand site that he needed to be at in order to kill this buck. However, the location revealed one significant problem. The trees in the area were small and did not present the option for hanging a tree stand. It also happened to be smack dab in the middle of Danger’s bedding area. This meant Mark had to get very creative.
Throwing the traditional box blind setup out the window, Mark devised an elevated sled design for his Muddy box blind. This sled would give mark the ability to be mobile, and slide the box blind into place. After the box blind was set up, and some Intel from a recent card pull, Mark went in for the kill.
Since the harvest of “Danger”, Mark has now perfected this mobile box blind setup. He now has the box blind fitted on a custom stand and mounted on top of a small utility trailer. This allows him to use the box blind wherever it might be needed. It also allows him to hunt with all of the advantages the box blinds offer over traditional mobile tree stand or ground blind setups.
