Default homemade stand help

Ok so this year i bought 2 groudn blinds one ameristep and the other is a primos ground max. Both of them collapsed and busted a hub because of the snow, I live in Northern Wisconsin so theres no way around the snow issue. So now im going to be building some light but sturdy homemade stands. Anybody ever build one or have some blueprints or whatever for me?? Thanks in advance.

No suggestion on homemade blinds but i do have one for your pop ups.

Buy one of those adjustable aluminum tent poles. Take the blunt end and make it even wider by wrapping a towel all around it and over the top creating "soft ball" and secure it with duct tape

Then each time you leave the blind, prop that end up against the center of the roof hub and the other end in the dirt. This will help keepthe roof up until you return next time.

I had my first one break also because ice and snow collapsed mine then just kept building on it until it snapped

Iv seen some made out of wooden pallets. Dunno how they exactly made it but maybe you can think of something.
