Default The Beast is Complete!!

Having broken my leg a few weeks ago I was forced to adapt. Most all of my sets are tripods nestled deep in a mesquite or ebony so for the next 6 weeks I needed an alternative. Started on this beast of a blind last week and have been hitting it hard ever since. Based the blind of off some of the plans found on here and it turned out great. To whoever shared their plans thank you!!! Blind will be transported and set up tomorrow god willing. Name:  IMG_5625.jpg

These are the plans I used. I will say that there is A LOT of room in this blind.

And run a fridge and a full range!! This blind is almost overkill. There is a ton of room.
