YognautBlueerat: I agree with 4KawasakiRider4, you could have bought one, but you'd miss out on the fun of building one with your dad. :D
nightsniper101: Thanks!!! it was a fun project to build. we dont move it around, we find a good place and leave it there. we dont take it out for the winter or anything.
4KawasakiRider4: awesome looking blind, but i have to ask, with the money you put into that blind, you couldve just bought a light portable blind. not trying to bash you in anyway, but i figured it was just cause it would be a fun project, but anyway id hate to have to pack that thing around.
nightsniper101: Thanks!!! i was gonna go with a metal, but the rubber is alot quieter in rain and snow. my dad has had rubber on his for 12 years and no problem. but your right, metal will last way longer. all of our roofs are metal.
giodazip: I also like the paint job, it looks 3 dimensional, and matches the surroundings perfectly. Good job overall, the only thing I would change is the rubber roof. Here in NY it would only last 1 season, better off w/ a metal roof.
rjryan64: good job man
nightsniper101: of course you do, no fun sitting in a hard chair.
nightsniper101: Thanks!!! i'll try to figure it out, i didnt make any plans for it, so i'll see what i can do.
MrLittlecheeks: Hey there, great job on the blind. Wondering if you could send me the dimensions and steps to buidling this, like how many sheets of ply wood, 2 by 4's etc. It's the exact size I'm looking to build. My e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks alot!!
nate dawg: Really nice paint job.
nightsniper101: it keeps it quiet. i dont have any problem with mud, its short carpet thats easy to clean and its just laying there so i can take it out if i want.
nightsniper101: i only use it nov 15th-30th. it would work anytime of year, i want to use it for something else.
thejailbreaktuts: carpet floors a bad idea cause its muddy
thejailbreaktuts: would only be good for winter
nightsniper101: thanks!!! yeah we have alot of fun.
comfycanadian: good job, hope you and your Dad had fun and have even more fun hunting together. My son is only five but we'll be doing the same thing in years to come.
nightsniper101: it was fun to build.
lewandlo: looks like a fun build
jlmw1966: Nice blind thanks for sharing.
nightsniper101: awesome. pretty good hunting over there.
nightsniper101: its about an hour from there.
MrAdrenalineDude: where is that last picture because it loooks about where we hunt, is it near hurley wisconsin?
MrAdrenalineDude: hey where is that last picture located because it really looks around where we hunt? we hunt in hurley wisconsin, is that around there?
nightsniper101: thanks, it was fun to build. yeha that would work good. i dont use them much so it was easy to make and i had the stuff there. i have to fix one of them now because the bear broke it in pieces.
Shawn Wilson: thats awsome man kewl paint job....you know what works good for window openers...the hydraulic lift cylinders of a car hood or the back of a van hatch...then they open by them selves and make now noise cause they open slow and smooth...
nightsniper101: i dont have any problems up here. we've had one for 12 years and its the same as it was when we built it. we dont have any problem with anything in them, theres a few spiders but notin more than you get in your house.
HuntSports: I've built'em like that years ago but always only lasted a year or two sitting on the ground, plywood door warping etc. etc. Spiders, snakes and rodents made their homes ? BigDaddy
nightsniper101: im pretty sure it was 3/8'', its just regular plywood for the walls. the floor was either 1/2" or 3/4" treated plywood and treated 2x4's
allmopars: nice what size plywood and type did you use? Im planning on building one within the next month or so.
nightsniper101: thanks!!! we got it off of a big under ground water tank, that was the roof. around 180-200 for everything.
Shaggychurchshoes: wow, that was pretty cool...where did you get the rubber, and how much did it cost?
nightsniper101: ya, it worked really good.
Fearyourgovernment: nice! I'll bet that worked pretty damn good
nightsniper101: thanks. ya we've made a few but, were hunting in thick woods so we dont use them much. the ground blinds are alot easier to get into also and less work to build.
nightsniper101: thanks. if you can find rubber roofing, it will last for ever. my dads had his out for 10 years and no leaks.
SportHunter4Life: Nice blind man. I need to fix mine up when I get back. Maybe next summer. Bastard leaks but I kill deer out of it every year.
OutdoorEnt: Love the chair! That's a great blind. Even if the hunting is crap you will be dry and warm. Better then we can say at OutdoorEnt!
nightsniper101: thanks!!! it was fun to build. i hope i get a big one.
nightsniper101: thanks!!! lol ya it works nice, haha ya i'll try too. i hope so, just put out bait yesterday and ill put the camera out when they start hitting the bait.
nightsniper101: thanks!!! ya, it keeps alot more heat in, its pretty air tight minus the windows and a little on the door. my dad painted the trees.
nightsniper101: thanks!!! oh ya there's room for another one. it 4 x 8 x 6 high.
nightsniper101: thanks!!! ya i have a mr. heater just didnt put it out yet.
