I made something similar for a bow blind. Got the idea from DaisyBell's post: http://discussions.texasbowhunter.co...ht=cheap+blind It's a great idea for a quick weekend setup. Unfortunately I tried to make it my blind for the season and (probably because I cut shooting windows in that same material) the wind tore it up. I'll try and post pics later.

Hmmm, I may have to try something similar for a simple portable duck blind for the marsh.

I did something simular around my Tripod. I setup the tripod in the middle of a small tree that had some cover but really needed more cover. So I mad several pieces all around the tripod and attached it to the tree and made it go over the top of the tripod as well. Then I draped army surplus camo over it and then I cut holes in it for shooting windows. It works really well and the deer don't even look at it. When the leaves was still on the tree it was hard to even see. Now you can see it but it is hard to see if anyone is setting in it or not.

BT32 - so that explains it! I went over there the other morning before we left to see where its at (great location, btw) and saw this mass of chaos up in a tree. When I realized it was your stand, I thought maybe a huge gust of wind had blown your quad up into the tree. I sat there and studied it through the binoculars for a little while trying to figure out what was what. Makes perfect sense now. Good luck next week.

Back to the original topic, the pvc got me to thinking about the tent frame I have for an old Eureka tent. It has aluminum shock corded poles, it's light weight and it's easy to set up. I may try to use it as a ground blind by draping camo material over the frame.

I like the concept behind this project. I do think the nylon rope is not needed and it would also need some cross bracing on the top to help hold up the netting.

Yeah, when the leaves was on the trees it was invisable. Now it looks like a huge missle toe.

Deers do not even look at it....

I have a bunch more PVC pipe and fittings, if you want to use it. I used 1 1/2 pipe because it does not flex as much. I think it will slide right over a T post as well to make it more sturdy and the cows won't push it around....

That's another interesting approach. I was thinking about the tent from the standpoint of instant portability but if I was going to put in a permanent blind your idea sounds a lot better. Thanks for the offer on the PVC btw, but hold onto the PVC for my sake.
