its interesting but what about portability?for the price and all the work i would just get a commercial made blind.however there is that satisfaction of doing it yourself.good luck with it

well i agree its not something that i would want to drag in and out everyday but place it for the season will be easy enough. only 65 to 70 lbs im guessing. and im sure if i were to look a little harder i could reduce cost i mean the camo burlap on the outside came from gander mountain.
but it did goes together pretty quickly 3 hrs maybe and i was expiermenting

thanks for the reply
chris

Chris you got a great idea with what you got there. The only thing cheaper is made by Ameristep Ameristep®- Hunting Tree Stands, Ground Blinds and Accessories which I use a Doghouse blind because it's portable.



If you have private property that you can leave your blinds in, the hog wire or bull wire method was in an artical in Buckmasters magazine this months issue showing a 3 sided using two 4' sections and one 8' with a section cut away for your window.

You can put a panel across the top with a tarp cover then bowtines to keep rain out or fully enclose with a door access, but use natural bowtines each year or as needed for that fresh smell etc.

Love your rifle choice as well, good caliber.
