Finished my low buck box blind over the weekend and put it out yesterday. All said and done, I might have $100.00 in it. Next one I build is going in the air!

That looks very nice indeed! I'm thinking of building one or two for my grandkids to hunt from; I want a little shelf on the windowsill for a gun rest or bipod.

Do you have any plans for it, or did you just figure it out as you went?

I basically just figured it out as I went. Framed the base out of 2x6's. Framed the walls out of 2x3's. Sheathed all 4 sides with T-111 and cut out the windows and door with a jig saw. I added a shelf in the front two corners with a notch cut in each one to rest your rifle against. Painted the inside flat black and did a redneck camo paint job on the outside with about 4 different colors from spray cans. The only items I bought were the 2x3's for the wall framing, the paint, and the hinges.

Killed a good number of deer in Alabama out of a blind that looked just like that.

I am going to the lease for the 1st time this weekend since I put it out at the end of turkey season. I am curious to see what all kinds of critters are living in it!

Looks great man. I had a friend who owns a porta john buisiness, and he discontinues all the "damaged" ones and cleans them real good. Take a clean one and cut the bottom out and build a better seat inside it with couple 2x4s and plywood over them and cut some windows out and it works good. Littl redneck but works fine and he aint out any money. Most of these places will give you the damaged ones for lil or no money at all.

Looks great. The next one you plan to build in the air is how they build them here in Germany. They call them "kanzel" which means "pulpit". <http://www.langmaack.com/jagdkanzel.html> You can use: translate.google.com if your browser does not automatically translate to English.

I have a couple different .pdf German documents that show how to build a kanzel and other type stands. Just have to look at the pictures to see how they do it.
