Deer Stand Ideas...

We have a metal frame that we would like to make into a box blind...I've already got the front about like I would semi like it too look like but of course I will prolly wide up changing some things...but here is my rough drawing of it
- see the bottom with the 2 openings we are thinking about using the front end loader on the tractor to move it around that way..
- my real question is how should I do the side windows??? I've been thinking and thinking and thinking some more but I'm just not sure what way to go I mean I know I can pretty much do anything and it will "get the job done" but I'm still undecided...ANY IDEAS??? 2 little windows or maybe one long window or maybe a window towards the front
- the sides will be made of barn tin

Tell me and I forget. Show me and I remember. Involve me and I understand.

since you will be moving it why not put real sliding windows in it.and then tint em

Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky

I would make Eight 3/4 width windows (2 each side),,, 4 for sitting view 4 for standing view.
Nothing fancy just simple fold-down flaps. That's what I would do.
good luck ETD
