Archery Hunting Blind

I love archery deer hunting but never really liked any of the hunting blinds on the market since they are mostly designed for gun hunting. Usually because the window openings are horizontal and for archery they need to be vertical. I pitched the blind side walls out so they wouldn’t interfere with drawing your bow back. This design gives the archer more interior space.
As I began to put this design down on paper..I realized I would have to make a jig to put the octagon shape together since I’m a one man show..

Once I made the top section and bottom sections it was easy to assemble the frame together

Now that is Different for sure. Has to be quite a job to move it.

I was thinning the same as Scott. Does that thing get super hot inside? The only blind hunting I’ve done was out of a duck blind.

Looks great. Now you just need a food plot around it. Got any pics from the inside?
Also be careful getting in it after its been vacant for a while wasps love building nests in mine

Wow! This is very creative and nicely done. Nice work. How much does it weigh and how difficult will it be to move it?

Thanks guys for the response…its not hard to movev around the farm – I load it in my front loader with two snap on heavy duty straps and take it slow. It does have a one acrefood plot where its at. It weighs 300lbs. A good friend hunted in it this year and just fell in love with the design. I actually shot anice buck the very first day I sat in it. It is worm inside and the smoked glass will fog up if you run a small propane heater during the cold winter days. If you clean the glass with shaving cream it prevents the glass from fogging

Great idea to design your own blind to solve a problem with the bow. Your design will stay hidden from radar too. It looks pretty stealthy.
