Default My 8Ft Cable Spool Blind

Made this blind to take my daughters hunting with me this year. Got them a crossbow for Christmas, so now they can sit in the blind with me. Still need to brush it a little bit, so not completely finished.

Greatness!

I ve been wanting to use a satellite dish for a roof on one of my hay ring blinds.

I have been looking for spools to use as bases too.

How did you attach the roof to the spool?

Was going to use the rubber Jeep hood latches, but with the weight of the dish it isn't going anywhere. I also put a a ring of great stuff foam where the the dish and top of the ring meet. Have the latches so might add them later.

Very nice. Big enough to sleep overnight in.

Make that floor quiet. You're gonna be moving a ways to view all that blind offers.
