I don't have any pics but you all know what a shower chair looks like. I'm getting old and the ground or a log just isn't cutting it anymore. I've got it set between two trees, one to lean back on and the other to rest my rifle against.

6'8" x 8", insulated, 7' walls, about 9' off the ground, 4' x 8' deck, urinal that drains deep into ground, propane heat, battery/AC converted power (for the TV tuner and monitor). Top 1/2 of the interior is painted black. Ceiling has custom wallpapering. Lexan flip-up windows (10" x 42") with full seals (to keep out the cold!). Built for comfort, built to last!

To be honest its more of a "beer blind" than a deer blind. Its about 300 yards from my house on my little 12 acres. Nice view down the food plot. Shoot a few deer out of it each year. Also have a few guys over during bow season to just sit and drink beers and shoot the **** and watch deer run about (no weapons involved).

View from out front:


View looking down the plot in mid september (rye is coming in nice!) Some perennial clover as well. 155 yards to the end (no prob for the Omega)


Room for 4/6 people:



Urinal in the corner (PVC fittings). Goes 4" into the ground into a pea gravel pit.



Storage shelves (for snacks). Still working on the camo ceiling wallpaper.


Also has ferocious guard cat:

Pictures of a couple blinds. The one with the brush all around it has been up for about 8 years and has been a great location. It is about 6' x 10' amd lifted about 12 ft. in the air. Insulated, lexan windows, oak paneling. The second one is a new construction for this year. Lifted the blind into the platform we built (about 6' off the ground) with the tractor you see in the pic. Hope it turns out to be a good one.

Nothing really fancy. 5x5, all pine stud interior, carpeted floor and window sills, Mr. heater to keep me nice and warm, and a nice comfy office chair that you can take a nap in. :D

My brothers and I built this blind two summers ago.







We added the food plots this summer. View from the blind. Planted in late Aug with WW, Oats, and Rye.

Wish I had a better picture of the lower part.

This shack, 6x6x7' tall, is on a 8 ft. elevated platform, AND on a wagon running gear. its portable. Can move it anywhere. Notice the 4x4s off the sides, for added stability.



Different shack we built, out of all plastic material, including the corner shelfs.

Another shack done last year, out of an old barn door. 2 sides are done out of that, the other sides out of reused lumber. 6x6, almost too big really.

Can't believe I'm going to post this. I just hope the wife doesn't read this cause it won't be the same when I tell her "I'm going to sit in church :)"
This was before I cut windows in it and put it in the woods. I did not take the tub with me either:D

4x6 two pedestal boat seats, carpeted, plexiglass windows and sixteen ft to the floor. These pics are from this yrs youth hunt.


Planted ravenna grass around it to help hide it.
