Redneck Blinds

Recommended Posts

Just ordered our 3rd blind. I can’t say enough about these blinds. Ergonomically setup perfectly for easy viewing, keeps you dry, outta the damn wind and warm as all heck with a buddy heater. Helps with scent control too.

Another plus is zero maintenance. No painting, staining, bees nests, squirrels or anything else messes with them.

These have been fantastic for all day sits. I’ve froze in tree stands since I was 14 and now it’s nice to just relax and not worry about staying warm. 

This one will end up around our newest plot. 
 

Yes they are a small fortune but well worth it imo. We’ve taken a good amount of deer outta them already and a few nice bucks. Yes you can build one but I’ll tell ya, you ain’t saving much.

Just an fyi to any of you guys who might be getting cold hunting these days.

They sure are nice looking, but too rich for my blood. 

All depends how ya look at it. These days it cost about as much as 6 grocery trips to walmart 😁

Heck you cant buy a decent lawn mower for that price.

Lol, pd 15k for a mower this spring, but that's how I pay my bills. 

As far as Walmart, I stay clear of that store as much as possible.

I think our club is picking up a Muddy or Redneck This Spring with the Archery windows in them. I certainly cant justify the price of one, When I can get lumber for free. Also not sure how it would get installed up on a platform with any elevation like we want. Maybe the farmer can help us there..

Rough idea how much the platform you built costs?
I am getting old and cold..lol

Don’t recall. We bought 5 16’ft pressure treated post and I believe the rest we scraped together outta existing wood my dad had laying around.

Railings and supports we cut down some small trees to use.

We went with a base of 10ft. @LET EM GROW We used a few ladders as a ramp and a 4 wheeler on the other side with a wench and we guided that sucker right up as we climbed the ladder pushing and guiding it. Went smoothly.

You kept the blind bottom perpendicular to the ladders? Or pulled it up the ladders on its side?

Right up the ladders on its bottom. Zoom in and you will see one tow strap around and one over. We then connected a clamp around  both straps and connected the wench cable to it and slide her right up into place.

I rented a boom lift to get mine up on the platform.  The rental was around $300.  I used it for a few other quick projects while I had it here too.
