Windows in the deer blind

The blind on Salamander's farm where I intend to be hunting.  Kubota always sits on the left because it has better shooting.  I sit on the right where it is always windy.  I decided to do something about that this year.

Not very fancy engineering.  Pieces of acrylic sheet screwed to lengths of 2-by-2.  Then attached to the inside of the blind with hinges.  Sheets swing so they can be pushed up when needed.
The tamarack is pretty this time of year.


  1. Well that's not very manly of you, I have to say. You're supposed to suffer a little when you hunt. I suppose you'll be hanging some curtains next - please refrain from gingham and choose an appropriate camo pattern. (Good Hunting)

  2. DH, who last year built a timber frame deer "shack", (long story) was asking if I knew where there were some onion sacks. He buys onions and potatoes in 50lb sacks and saves the sacks since "they will be useful some day".
    So, have I seen any onion sacks recently. Yup, there are a couple in the basement, want me to bring them up?
    "Yes, please."
    "OK, here ya go. What are you going to do with those?"
    "Make curtains for the deer shack."
    He can see through the sacks, and they will move easily out of the way when he sees a buck sneaking up on the deer shack.
    What could I say? Lol.

  3. Good luck with your hunting endeavors!!
