That's sweet. Should be a little cooler as well. Barrying them will help with sound a d scent control.

I know he said in the build post $335 but I don't know if that's all 13 blinds or per blind

The first group of hunters sure liked them this past weekend. With the 3 window set up, we set the blinds in an east west configuration to the feeders or water troughs. Then we can hunt most north or south winds ,by keeping downwind window closed and we cover them with a jacket or something to cut down light.

Educate me. What do you gain by burying the blind 16" vs. just sitting on top of the ground?

RTP, we lower the blind into the ground for several reasons. It's amazing how 18-24 inches lowers the profile of a blind from an outward visual appearance. It makes them a lot easier to cover with brush. From a chemistry standpoint, I have always heard that most odor molecules are heavier than air, or "stink sinks". If you are sitting in a hole any odors are likely to stay in that low spot with you. Sound is also greatly muffled by being partially buried. Shooting from that angle is actually shooting slightly up instead of the normal down shot. Don't know if there is any advantage to that.

TomKat, the rental on that mini excavator was $670 for the weekend. For 13 setups, that amounted to $51 per hole. In August, that sure seemed like the thing to do.

Do you have any pics of the back of the blind?

If the blind is buried, how does the door open to get in...?

In one of the build pics you can see where the door bottom is about 20" from the bottom of the blind. Once you set it the door is a couple inches above ground
