Default First Bow Blind Build

Well I built this back in September, and never got around to posting pictures. So here it goes... Off-and-on work on weekends and a few days during the week. Took me around a month to get it ready to go. Had to wait for windows to be delivered to put finishing touches on it. Went with deerview windows, they have worked great! Got the up & down windows a tad low. May adjust in the offseason. Took this cull buck at the end of the season for the first kill out of it. Had the bow, couldn't quite get the shot off. So took it with the rifle instead. Looking forward to some pig hunting out of this thing in the offseason. Its' 6' wide x 6'8" to front middle window. [plenty of room to take a nap ]

Looks good! I'm building a hexagonal blind now & hope to build a half hex like you did just a tad smaller.
