Part 2 of how to make an elevated stand for hunting, with details about securing the blind to the stand and making a ceiling or roof support using salvaged materials
all the pressure treated wood for this project was cull lumber from RP Lumber, and the total cost, not counting the old pop up I had not even been using, was $100.
Thanks for watching!!

That works, the problem with that is the ground blind will last about 2 maybe 3 years. The sun and wind dries the fabric and becomes very brittle. Then, when storms come thru branches from the tree come crashing down on it and rip the blind. I spent a lot of time patching up holes and tears until I replace two of them with wooden box blinds. https://youtu.be/Cpu-5r-xUXw, https://youtu.be/NAJtmpDRZ-E
I too want my Popup blind elevated. Too many snakes in my area. Great video.
Your center support for snow load is brilliant !
Be sure to waterproof the blind annually.
The best way to secure the blind for wind is to run paracord from the roof cross supports the the center of the floo
Try it in the wind.. Hook your finger over the [ x ] and pull downward.
That looks great!
Love the outrigger idea to hold blind tight
Lamp post great idea
Good luck this season
Looks awesome nice job!
R U Married? LOL
not really, I just pull the two pins out and the wood pole drops down into the lamp post and I set it in the corner.
That's gonna be in your way when you get ready to shoot
Im making one too
