Default Disappearing Ground blinds

A couple of weeks ago, I posted my mass production ground blind process. We took 13 of the new blinds to Water Valley this weekend and buried and brushed them in. We had a lot of excavating and construction going on and had big help from Bone Thug and Kings X. It was hot hard work but we thought you might like to see some of the work and results.

They're water tight and a snakes cannot get in these. Bodey built a great blind and put in good windows.

Well color me a fan then. If a snake got in one by any means it would become a high dollar snake aquarium and not a ground blind...

We buried them 16 inches into ground then piled the excess dirt around outside. For a snake to get in ,he would have to dig down thru about 24 inches of packed dirt. We really like the dirt floor for quietness and nothing can hide there. Doors and windows are pretty tight but maybe a scorpion could enter.

Siding is waterproof Hardee backer board and all seams are caulked and waterproofed. In an extreme flooding situation the ground could get saturated 16 inches deep and some water could rise from dirt floor within. I would play those odds in West Texas and if if ever did get that wet, I'd just say Hallelujah.

If water gets in just throw some dry ready mix in it. Instant floor.
