Round Bale Blind

Post by KsBow » Tue Jul 26, 2016 3:06 pm

Made a round bale blind. Palette, plywood, cattle panel, baling twine, prairie hay, and some netting. 63 inches high inside, 59 inched front to back. Oh Yeah, some burlap for the sides and some hinges for the door.

I placed the shooting window using a 59 inch bow. I normally shoot shorter than that, so it should be fine. I did add a square more on the vertical on the left hand side. Inspected it in place today and back was higher giving me a poor angle so I remedied that problem. Here it is in place.

Dennis, I had the wind right yesterday and got into it around 4:00. Till about 5:30 it was hot, with a slight breeze every once and a while. By 6 it was nice. I'm gonna like it when it gets cold. :applaud:

On the south side of the East Food Plot. They really like the triticale I planted.
