Default Tank blind

Trying to decide on how I want to do the window. I know I only want one window in the front of the blind. I was thinking something like this. It's 36" from floor to bottom of the window. The window itself is 30x12.

Are you going to cover the window with mesh?

Why only one window; less light? I'd suggest two or three vertical windows spread out as opposed to one central window.

What I will probably do is make mesh curtains that I can slide and make a slit to shoot out of. This is the spot I'm putting that's why I only need one window. Also after I frame it in it will shrink down some.

I'm no professional by any means but here is a progress picture.

I've hunted in one and I think it would be wise for more windows for ventilation if needed but in proper position so not backlighted. Some times deer patterns change and you wouldn't have to move blind

Or NOT.

One window is the only way to go if you are bow hunting from the ground. I have hunted groundblinds for years and you NEVER open more than the smallest window you can shoot out of. this blind should work great Arrowslinger.

Less light and less chance they will see movement inside the blind. Also less air movement means less scent to get out of the blind.
