No I haven taken any pics of the inside, it is 6 feet high and 6 feet wide, has a carpeted floor I installed an led light in the ceiling. The windows can be raised and lowered with one fnger and are completely silent, right now I have two chairs inside, the door locks. It is a 360 brand tower stand, you can google them. I am looking forward archery season.

Sounds like you need a hunting buddy out there.



I wont do any archery in PA this year. No time with my Wyoming antelope hunt. But will get out for bear at least a few days and then rifle season I have 8 days off to hunt.

Enjoy that blind it looks nice

You can also go the route of buying a blind like OT did. More expensive than building, but has everything ready to go for you and you don't have to worry about fitting windows and doors etc. Also it's made out of stuff that'll probably last forever.

Wood, if properly cared for, lasts a long time. But I would guess that blind of OTs would outlast most of us.

I've been hunting for nearly 50 years and have spent my share of time in open stands in rain, wind, snow and below zero weather. Finally 4 years ago I wised up and built this blind for my self.
It's 6'6"x8'. Walls insulated to R15, floor to R21 and Roof to about R30. The underside is lined with sheet metal to seal the mice/critters out.
I watched the free section on craigslist and got everything to build it for free. I did pay $60 for the sliding windows for it.
Best part is I trenched in plastic conduit for 110v power to it so it's heated.
I built it here at home and hauled it up to our property on my trailer.
It sits on a promontory about 13' above the floor of an old gravel pit where I keep a deer plot.
Here are a few photos of it.
Hmmm, I can't seem to figure out this forum software to upload a couple of photos.

Thanks Jake.
sometimes my wife comes out there with me.
Here's a photo of her in the blind.
You can see she's hunting hard.

Good looking blind Ultra. No electric in my 360 but I have a Mr Heater that will more than keep me warm.

Here's mine set up in my back yard. My daughter co-opted it for her tea parties. The carbine (loaded with Underwood 9mm+P+ 124gr Speer Gold dot bonded core JHP) is for use against any interloping black bears. They seem to think my back yard is a bear super highway, so dad maintains continuous overwatch whenever she is outside playing.
