My father and I read about these on here I decided to try it and see what its like didnt see any with pics so here it is guys save yourself $39.99 from summit we used camp cloth material a sewing machine and metal grommets. We also added some soft foam around the bottom for some weight to keep it hopefully from blowing around to much on the bottom but as u can see in pics it really covers you up alot. We are gonna sew some pockets on the inside to store things in were also gonna see how hard it is to sew some velcro straps on the bottom to lock it down at the bottom once ur up the tree . Gonna see how hard that is to do in stand before we sew them on . It measures 5ft by 4ft but u can change the measurements to fit what u want has 4 metal grommets along the rail held with zip ties hope u guys like it

Did something similar with our ladder stands. Bought the $15 camo material, cut it in half, overlapped about 15" at the front and wrapped it around the sides. Secured with zip ties. It could be trimmed a little better, but it worked fine. Me and my fiancee killed two does out of it on opening day. Here's a couple of pics of my fiancee (TNNewgirl) after we put the material up. And yes, that's one of those $98 2 man ladder stands from wally world!

Funny, I just made one this weekend before I saw this post. I used the $15 see-through fabric with the leaf cutouts.

I took the pads off the top half of the stand, zip tied the fabric around the front and up the angled sides. Then I put the pad back over it to help hold it in place.

I intend to use just the top half as a ground blind, but I'll have the seat adjusted very low so only my head and shoulders stick out the top.

If it works well I'll also use it as a portable blind for coyote hunting.

I've killed 3 out of mine since rifle season started this year...good luck.
