My buddy and I went up and set out the blind in preparation of our archery opener on Sept. 1st. We're almost up to the field and do our usual "poke the head and see if anything is there". Well, there was. A moose! Unfortunately, her calf wasn't with her which made us nervous. But she moved on eventually. Anyway, here are some pics of the blind going up.Posted ImageMy buddy packing up the camo netting and blind while I have the corn on my backPosted ImageBefore the blind goes upPosted ImagePic of one of the shoot through windows, pre-modificationPosted ImagePic of the window we made to increase the field of view.

:signgreatreport3kg: good luck.
You can hop but you can't hide. Yahi Bowmen. Its not how far you can shoot but how close to the game you get when you shoot. Sights we don't need any sights. Why waist time reloading when I can be making arrows.

Really good looking setup. Be sure and take some pictures from inside while you are waiting. Want to see what you are seeing.

You better take a video person along with you when you go hunt that blind. You have some great stuff there.

Rogere that to all. My buddy will be running the video since he won't be hunting until rifle season. Went to check the cam and put more corn out last night, and my blind was down. I'm hoping it was just the wind the other night. It got pretty breezy. I think I have it staked down better this time. 4 days to go!!! I took all week off next week, not only for deer, but grouse as well. :smiley-innocent-halo-yellow:

Let's hope it was only wind and not PETA. Of course if it was PETA, you wouldn't have a blind left. Good luck on the hunt. Great to have a whole week to devote to the hunt. How about your wife? Is she going to be doing any hunting from the blind?

I was thinking the same thing. We'll see on Saturday when we head up to put more corn up. She might go on opening day of fall turkey season but no deer for her.
