Default Snap Lock Blind

Myself and two hunting buddies pitched in and bought five of these blinds. We have the bases built and have two up in the woods so far. We got this one up this weekend. This is the honest truth, there were 4 of us working, we looked up and there were 3 deer standing in the field. Two of them walked across the field within 50 yards of where we were working.

I can't wait to get a shot from our new blinds.

One thing on those blinds is they can be very noisy inside when it gets cold hitting the sides of them etc . Buddy of mine had one he put carpet on the sides to deaden the noise . That's cool with the deer looks nice too

Default Another One Up Today

We are getting better at putting these things up. This one went up in about three hours. It overlooks a two year old clear cut. Gonna be a good spot.

Default Hunter's Condo

We got another nice blind in the woods today. I sure hope I get to spend lots of time in the woods this year. We will sure have plenty of good quality places to hunt.

Looks good. What brackets are you using to attach the 4x4s to the deck?

I have two of the Snap Lock blinds, 4x6 and 4x4. X2 on the loud factor. They are sweet, and definitely keep you out of the weather. I used pipe insulation on the window ledges to keep the noise down when laying a rifle out the window. Even the slightest bump was loud before.

Also, they take spray paint really well if you want to blend in a bit.

One thing to keep in mind, they go together really easily, but taking them back apart can bend/warp some of the slots.

Enjoy!

The one I built was constructed of pickets from Home Depot. The walls are framed with 2x4s and it has a metal roof.

Very nice. I tried to Google the price, but was getting some for $179 and some for $800. What is an accurate price for the 46?

I believe they were north of $700. We bought 3 at one time plus we found 2 used for a little less.

We put up the last two this weekend. The elevators are the way to go.
