What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

The Story

Let me share a story of what sparked the idea and design with you. It was October 1, 2011 – the opening morning of archery season. I was sitting in my lock-on tree stand twenty five feet up and I was watching six deer working their way down a trail to feed at a group of pin oaks. This was located about fifty yards from my stand and I had the perfect set up. Two weeks before this, I spent time scouting and found two separate areas where the deer had been feeding on these pin oaks. There was also plenty of deer scat and tracks around these trees. This is what’s called a “hotspot”. I set lock-on stands up on each hotspot based on the predominant winds and left them alone until opening morning. That’s when I would decide, based on the wind direction, which hotspot I would hunt. This was public land, so I was not surprised when the more mature deer held back and let a young, year and a half old scrub buck walk ahead. He got right in line with my deer stand, he looked around, and then to my surprise, he looked up and straight at me. Oh man. I was standing still and with my shoulder against the large pine tree —but I had no branches around me to break up my silhouette. The branches didn’t start until the very top of my tree so I knew I was busted. Of course, on public land, pressured deer are more skittish by nature so he stomped the ground and the rest of the deer made their way to see what he was looking at, but stayed out of shooting range. They all started snorting and did not stop until I finally threw in the towel and left very disappointed and frustrated. This has happened to me several times, and I always assumed that it’s just part of hunting. Additionally, there is no telling how many times deer have seen me and then slipped around me just outside of my view. Well, despite my love of being in the great outdoors, and as much as I did not want to feel enclosed, I decided that if I wanted to increase my success in the woods I was going to have to buy a hunting blind. Of course I didn’t know it at the time, but I believe 100% that this was God’s answer to my prayers. When I got home, I began my search online. I knew exactly what I needed it had to be out there, but it wasn’t . And THIS is how the HotSpot™️ hunting blind was born. Whether you’re hunting out of a lock-on, climber, ladder stand or find yourself needing a ground blind, the HotSpot™️ 4-in-1 is the tool you need to keep your hunting options open. Read on to learn more about the HotSpot™️ hunting blind, how it works and how you can be a part of this exciting journey. 

 THE 4-IN-1 HYBRID BLIND THAT KEEPS YOUR HUNTING OPTIONS OPEN 

 If you would like to start your day with an early morning flooded timber duck hunt, and end your day with a deer hunt with the options of ladder, lock-on, climbing stand or ground blind, the HotSpot™️ is the only single blind on the market that can keep your options open. Maybe you decide at the last second to try the young oak CRP land you’ve had your eye on -- then you want to set up the HotSpot™️ as a ground blind. For the day hunter that travels deep into the public land, the HotSpot™️ is a light 6 pounds and quiet to carry. With it’s carrying case with additional external pockets, there is no need for a backpack. It is quick and quiet to set up; less than six minutes. Keep your options open. When you find a hot spot, you’ve got what you need to hunt it. For the private land hunter, leave behind the blind set up for a couple of weeks. Ladders, you enter and exit from the front of the blind; lock-ons, you enter and exit from from the side wall. Climbers, leave the blind in the tree and climb out from under it. Duck hunters, set up a lock-on and stand right at the water line. Turkey hunters; leave your blind in place on your best turkey hot spot. For the outdoor enthusiast who has to spend most of their time indoors because of work, the HotSpot™️ is the blind that keeps them concealed and helps shield them from the elements while still being outdoors with an open front design and wide, infinitely-adjustable windows. This also allows for a 360 degree horizontal shooting range and a 180 degree vertical shooting range; something no other blind can match.

Risks and challenges

Pirates, iceburgs or a satellite falling from outer pace and hitting the freighter on the way; there are always risks!

The key challenge to HuntWorks Outdoors right now is the funding of the initial production run. We have worked out an agreement with the manufacture and by raising the funds from this campaign we will be able to accomplish that.

**We cannot ship to California.**
