Ask the farmer if you can pay for a few bales ?

He may even be willing to move them around for you ?

We have made them for waterfowl hunting out of Hog Panels. We wired 2 of them side by side and covered with corn stalk/light camo burlap. We put chicken wire over the outside and zip-tied sorrounding natural material, ie.. cornstalks, hay, brush. We leave a section of the floor open to get inside. Just roll it a bit forward or back, slip in and put rebar stake back in and good to go!!!! If ground is frozen, we use cinder blocks to hold it in place for windy conditions. We have placed a dark tarp inside and use for deer hunting to cut down the wind and scent and to keep the rain from off our heads.

You can buy a couple of round bales for a lot cheaper than you can buy a blind. I've got a guy down the road from me here in TX that is selling round bales for $40. Drop 2 in the field and sit between them on a chair.

What Flags,Sheridan and Second Chance mentioned.....You could even buy some Square Straw/Wheat Bales and stack them up like a Shooting House leaving openings on all 4 sides or stack them around You a few feet high and sit behind them.

Ive seen people use the round ones in a triangle with about a foot opening between them. Put a sheet or 2 of plywood over them with square bales to hold in place and be out of the rain and snow.

That's a great idea. You'd also be very warm because bales make a great insulator keeping heat in

Default To big for me to haul in...

at my target range. I have a range where you shoot between trees, the trees are so close. It reminds me of a bowling lane with the pins setup.
I had one range one time where a deer came and rubbed one of the trees in the practice firing lane.
