Using Ozonics In A Ground Blind

If you hunt with Ozonics in a ground blind, there are a few things you should know. First, if you have the Ozonics HR-200 be sure to set the unit to standard mode. Boost mode should only be used in the treestand. The HR-150 is perfect for ground blinds.
The first thing you want to do is check the wind. Mount your Ozonics above you in the blind and aim it toward a downwind window. Ozonics has a special rod attachment made specifically for this purpose. When mounting your unit this way it will be oriented upside down. This will not affect the performance of your Ozonics.
Where you put your Ozonics in the blind depends on the wind speed. If you have little or no wind, we recommend putting the unit as close to the downwind window as possible. If the wind is around 10 miles per hour, place the unit around 18 inches from the window. For wind speeds higher than 10 miles per hour, place your Ozonics as close to the center of the blind as possible.
You want the unit to emit ozone in the direction your scent is blowing. The ozone should be leaving the blind and eliminating your scent as it exits the blind. If you are encountering the strong order of ozone in your blind, move the unit closer to the window. You should only smell the ozone once in a while.
Hunting with Ozonics will allow you to hunt your favorite spots more since the wind will no longer be as important and you won’t have to worry about blowing your hunting area out with human scent anymore.
When using your Ozonics HR-200 in a treestand, you will want to use the unit in Boost Mode. For ground blind applications, simply turn your unit on. The default setting is regular "ground blind" mode.
