The only issue is the paint. I guess the Terrell Co summer sun is just too much for it. Im thinking about dumping some cash on about a dozen cans of rubberized undercoating... spray the entire thing then krylon over it. That stuff has held up well for years out there on some of our feeders.

Going to head west this weekend and pick up the blind. Welded some pipe skids for her today. Going to cut the wood tower off and mount her on a sled type base so shes easier to move around.

Got her legs chopped off, loaded, and back to the shop this weekend. That west Texas heat and wind does a number on paint and wood!

LOL! Would be cheaper buying one of the commercially available metal or polymer ones for sure.

Safe and sound on the lease in Blanco. Will let the paint dry for a week or so and then hit her with some Krylon camo.
