Dont make the windows too narrow, your range of visisbility will drastically be hurt with small window opening. I knew a guy that built a house with narrow windows and there was a nice buck that came out basically under his stand. He could hear it but couldnt see it b/c of the windows, luckily it walked out far enough to where he could get a shot off. Needless to say, he cut the windows bigger the next day ;\)

I just leave openings wide enough that you can see below you but not too wide that you are overly exposed from a distance. I don't use sliding windows, but they are nice to keep the wind out when it is a really cold windy day, but I don't remember a day in several years in TN when it has been that cold. Plus, if they squeak, game over!

I made my windows hinged on the bottom and latched at the top. They fold down into the shooting house. IMO it is a liitle quieter than the sliders. Also single pane glass is much cheaper
than plexi-glass or lexan and will not yellow after a few years.

I have made sliders and hinged windows from the bottom, and I like the hinged ones a lot better. Just use one of those hooks on an eyeball things.
