Elevated Deer Hunting Blind (6×8) – Full Tour!



Follow along as I explain some of the methods I used to build and elevate this shooting box/deer blind. Some ideas are mine, some are borrowed from others. I can’t wait to hunt out of it!
SORRY FOR THE SHAKING IN THE VERY BEGINNING AND END! I WASN’T AWARE UNTIL LATER ON.

What do you think?

  1. Beautiful blind and great job salvaging building materials.
    I built a couple of two story blinds last year.
    Only thing I found was the deer didn’t like the netting or burlap because the wind would blow it causing movement.
    I stenciled the legs and outer walls with silhouette trees and leaves so it would blend into the fall canopy.
    Thanks for posting, I need to add that urinal, brilliant lol

  2. The truth! Love your style and functional ideas. Deer don't know if it's a new 2/4 or a used one. Nice blind. Food plot too…. You looking for a hunting partner……?

  3. deer can smell the pheromones in urine but hearing is probaly their best sense IMO from what I was taught years ago in the hunter safety course lol but its moreso about colors they have excellent eye sight and can see any color in black, white and UV spectrums

  4. Thanks for the great ideas, going to build a 6X8 blind for another hunting property in the mid-west where the weather can really get nasty, as in the recent tornados that destroyed lots of Kentucky. Prayers for the families that lost loved ones.

  5. Urine smell doesnt bother deer. I’ve peed deliberately from my climber within eyesight of deer wind in their favor to test their reaction.
    Needless to say I learned it doesn’t bother them. I’ve proven it several times for my satisfaction.

  6. I agree with you about human urine. I believe it really peaks a deer's curiosity. I'll actually urinate on rubs. I get at least 2 deer every season. one bow and one with a gun. I'm 66 and have been hunting regularly for 30yrs.

  7. Now thats my kind of shooting shack. Mine is only 4’x8’ and not elevated but where it sits it doesnt need to be. The field it overlooks is 500 yds long but most of the deer traffic is within 300. I need to add plexiglass to my window to keep out the cold

  8. I LIVE IN NW WISC. GREAT IDEA WITH THE STEPS. SNOW ON WOOD STEPS ALSO CRUNCHY/SLIPPERY. I HAD TO FINALLY PUT SMALL MESH CHICKEN WIRE ON OUTSIDE OF BLINDS CAUSE THE RED SQUIRRELS CONSTANTLY CHEWED HOLES IN THE WOOD WALLS AND NESTED IN THEM. WHAT A STINKEN' MESS TO DEAL WITH. NEXT BLIND IS GOING TO HAVE METAL ROOFING MATERIAL FOR WALLS.

  9. I've built about a dozen hunting blinds and sold them over the years. But finally building one for myself. And even after all the blinds I have built, I got new ideas from this video. Thanks alot. I will share my build when I get it finished.

  10. In my experience, urine brings the deer in. Dad always said bucks can detect testosterone levels in the urine (from a man) and it brings them in snorting and stomping thinking another male buck is invading their territory. Every time I've taken a leak, I have gotten a buck.

  11. I built a 6×8 ft two man stand 12ft tall. Similar to yours, 2 yrs ago. I like some if the things you did to your stand. But we don't have certain issues in our georgia area. Mine overlooks a half acre plot with corn feeder. Tks for your informative video.
