Will be borrowing this idea. My son will be bow hunting for the first time next season. Will be good for him. Heck I might make money for me.

I bought it from Academy for $15/package and used 6. The base layer is basically camo burlap, then covered that with the leafy camo wrap. Takes 2 to get over bonnet and 1 around front.

Also where the supports cross we tied together with wire as they will hit together and make some noise.

I like it. Better than ground blinds.

We finished up our rendition this today. Like some of you suggested, we first wrapped the cattle panel sides and roof with black plastic.

The thickest plastic we could find was only 3mm so we added a brown tarp over the roof. We then wrapped the whole thing with poly-ethylene camo we found at Academy.

I added a door on the back side that is hung from a piece of 1-inch PVC pipe and that is attached to the padded rail with a couple of hose clamps.

I am glad I had my son and his buddy along when it came to time to insert the legs and lift the stand. Its not too heavy, but its awkward.

I have to say that I am very happy with the quality of this Game Winner blind. The directions were clear, and every part, nut, and bolt was labeled correctly. And everything fit together as it should.

In the last photo my son and his buddy are sitting in the blind...and they're fairly well concealed in the darkness.

Thanks again to Leddy for the idea and I apologize for hijacking your thread.

I have that exact same stand in both a double and a single. I'm wondering if putting black plastic over it first then camo to keep the rain somewhat off of you will make it too hot.

Looks like they redesigned the seat backs. It used to attach and pivot in the middle.....didn't give enough room for ones rump on the seat. Looks a lot better now, I took the seat completely off and just put Woodsey To seats up there.
