About Us

It was a cold, wet, winter’s day in the woods waiting for the perfect deer while leaning back against a downed tree asking myself “Is all of this really worth it?”

Hi, I am Stan Nitzel, Owner and operator of One Arm Bandit Deer Blinds. As my hunting partner and I were riding home that day in 2008, we began to discuss how to improve our deer hunting experiences. We bought pop-up blinds yet still froze and the objects of our “deerest” affections knew we were there.

That’s when we began to develop a new kind of hunting blind.

We discussed how it needed to be insulated with modular walls that could accommodate different types of windows to meet the needs of different styles of hunting like riffle or bow.

These conversations were the birthplace of One Arm Bandit Deer Blinds.
