I hunted duck & Geese for 40 years before hog hunting so this blind looks a little like a duck blind. This blind is elevated 8' off the ground. Built this blind singlehanded. The 4 legs are landscape timbers, the floor has a 2 x 6 framed floor. The floor is strapped to 2 trees using ratcheting tie down straps. So far have killed 6 hogs from this blind. I lowered one side low enough that we can sit up there in lawn chairs. Used mostly for night hunting. Supports 2 adults easily and is very stable. Has a stairway going up and down for safety and comfort.

One person tree stand with wrap around curtain to keep hunter hidden from the chest down. Made of 2" PVC
and strapped to the tree. The 2" PVC also supports the rifle when making the shot.

Looks good. If it gets the job done, what's not to like, right ?

Comfort means everything. As long as you're comfortable you can sit for a long time, and be still and quiet. Being still and quiet goes a long way toward not spooking game. Having the cover of the blinds walls is a big help to hide any movements. They look great to me.

If you are happy, that's ALL that matters. Plus it has good history now with 6 hog kills from it.

No plans but plenty of mental planning. Sawing and cutting was done at the RV resort. It was hauled in pieces in my Ford Focus to the leased property. Full sheets of plywood were dropped off with a pickup truck. The blind is a
"modular design" with minimum cutting. I actually found inside storage for the blind for the off season.

Like I said, I built and erected the blind singlehanded. It took some thinking but it got done.
