Hi everyone.
My herter s brand blind broke 2 leg poles in a storm last year.
Cabelas no longer Carry's it and has no real info where to get parts.
Does any one know of a company that makes poles.
I would think the gas to be someone.
I am not that computer savy and cannot come up with any info.
I can see throwing it out and buying a new one for a simple thing.
Thanks.
And I welcome any fixing ideas.

If you go to tractor supply they have fiberglass fence posts you can cut to length. Cheaper than the shipping online.

Thanks the great thing about sights like this is different ideas.
I found a similar pole but out of stock on hub blind.
I looked on u tube and found a video on pole repair it has the same lower leg piece and he drilled out the broken pole and glued the end in a new fiberglass pole.my pole has a pin thru it at the bottom just like his had.
Some times we or I just over think things.
Like the old saying KISS.
Thanks I will be back in bussines soon.

Update.tractor supply did have the correct 3/8 diameter pole .99 cents each.The depot poles were smaller diameter more money.

My end piece at the bottom of the leg is metal.
I put it in a vice with light pressure and heated it with my propane torch and pulled my pole out,then ran a 3/8 drill bit in the end to clean it out.
Cut the pole to length,glued it in then put a rubber cap on the other end.Like on the old carburetors.
Thanks again
