SO, I didn't like that the good blinds were 300 to 400 bucks, I decided to make one myself... about 120 bucks for what I came up with...

http://www.vtarmynavy.com <--- you can go there to get deer blind netting it's roughly $70 (+ S&H) for a 7'10" X 30'
I believe it's cateragorized as camo net / netting

take some 2"x2"s make two 6' squares, run four more 2"x2" beams inbetween the two. and you have the outline to an outhouse... =)

But then you can lay your camo netting out, And roll and attach ( I use staples ) the netting to your frame. Wide side would be rolling, you will figure it out if you try this!

NOTE: I also add extra support in my frame. I have made them without x-tra support, but would not recommend it!making a triange brace in the corners works very well. I am soon to begin construction on another blind. Anyone interested in me posting some pictures?

( I make my blinds seven feet high, Feel free to experiment, although 7 is a great height for me. )

WOULD ALSO LIKE TO NOTE: this is a two man setup.

You can also make the frame out of pvc pipe and ziptie the netting to it. It makes it alot lighter but you better have it tied down in a heavy wind.

FYI Cabela's has pop-up ground blinds that can fit 2 people and look just like the Double Bull blinds. Two versions the most expensive one is $200 I believe. I bought mine Ground Max Predator Den with predator camo from there and paid around $130. Has the zip out windows, mesh screens, zip open half roof, and comes with a carrying case you wear like a backpack. It's rated 4.5 out of 5 with 44 reviews at this time..... I am happy with it and it only takes seconds to set up.

i found one of the simpliest things to do is go to the co-op and buy some hogwire and t-post. build your deisred size of blind. lay a section or two on top, cut out your shooting window on the sides. put in brush through the holes in the wire or netting around it. you might have 40 bucks in it total, and is very easy to take down and move somewhere else
