    With season closing in, I thought I'd try and add something and do my part to help pick up forum activity.

    I bought this trailer last winter at an auction for $5. After a little frame repair, started building up. I cantilevered the sides and front to leave room for drawing a bow, it also doubles as a nice bench.
    Obviously I like lots of windows in a blind. They are all tinted and the deer cannot see in unless very close. 4 of them open. The blind is weather, bug, and scent proof and very quiet.

    Yikes!! Might as well throw on some gutters, downspouts and a window AC and call it home :)

    Looks awesome...wish I had your construction skills!!

    That looks fantastic, put some new wheels on it, paint the trailer and people would think that came from a manufacuter, could slap a 2k price tag on it and someone would buy it. Looks really really good!

    Looks nice and will be very comfortable to hunt out of. That's a lot of windows, might want to get some of the screening material and cover some of the windows to hide your movement. My blind is on 8' post and I had to cover the windows because the deer was picking up movement inside the blind. They are a little curious of it to start with and as long as they couldn't see me inside they were fine.

    And it's found a temporary home. I built this blind for this spot because swirling wind makes a tree stand set up impossible. [​IMG]

    That’s awesome! I’ve been looking to do the same thing with a small trailer. Looks like you built it to last, should be hunting out of that thing for next 20+ years.
