Let's be honest here....Jason, we all know you are an active member of the
"Slacker Club".

KactusKiller(Jack),
Seriously...Ask Jason what he calls his bow spots on the Christoval lease.

2. Rhymes with Flacker

I had a Texas Hunter Products 4x8 blind on a 5ft tower hit the ground a while back during some high winds.

I decided to fix it back up and make it into a bow ground blind instead. I was in the processing of moving my other spot so I figured I'd try this blind out at my new spot.

Jeremy helped with cutting off the tower and standing her back up.

It took me 3 weekends but I finally got all 4 corner post and the middle post replaced and sealed back up. It was an absolute rodeo getting it all lined back up for the new post. I'm sure happy I got it all done. It bout wore me smooth out. Lol

Here's a few pics ...

Before.



Fixed back up.




I took off the window tracks in the front so I could install a deerview horizontal slider instead.




And here's some pics of the blind setup at my new spot I'm calling "Pipe Line". It's in the "Y" of a big draw system and close to a pipe line. I'm really excited about this location and view.





View from the front of bow blind...I've never really feed any protein before but I decided to move in the protein feeder as well. I may throw in a few bags ever so often.




I added the darker tinted plexiglass on the left side so I can see down the draw.
View from the left side of blind.


I'm really excited about this setup. Never had a spot like this with this much of a view for a bow blind. I'll be able to see them coming from a long ways. Lol
Can't wait to see it all greened up there.
Anyways, just thought I'd share a few pics of my new setup. I'll get some better pics of it soon.

Nothing wrong with a 5 gallon bucket and a few cut cedar limbs. That's how I shot this dude as he walked down a trail 20 yards away.
