Excellent work and excellent idea, it appears to be very well thought out.

I think that may be my #1 after the season project, I have a spot where that set up would be deadly.

I would say between 75 and 100 pounds.All the frame is made of is 2 cattle panels and 18' of 1 1/4 angle.Even with the hay 2 people can move it easily.

Ever since seeing this AWESOME blind I've been waiting to build one. I have almost everything I need to build it but I'm thinking of adding windows with shoot through mesh that lower from the top of the blind that I can airbrush to match the hay pretty close and the full closing windows raising from the bottom in turn giving each hole 2 options for windows. I had some teflon tubes cut for the window hinges for quiet operation, anything different we need to try on this build?
