Pit Blind Roll Top Question

Postby woodsedge » Thu Mar 21, 2013 1:35 pm

I'm installing a roll top on my pit blind. I don't plan to roll it back when ducks come in but instead simply leave it rolled back a foot or so and use the Gibson's Duck Blind Covers I already have as front or rear cover (depending on which side of the pit I'm shooting out of). I want to be able to simply stand up and shoot instead of having to roll back the roll top and flare the ducks.

My question is should I go ahead and make the roll top the actual width of my pit (4-feet wide) or make it narrower than the actual width? I don't want to have too much overhang on either side but it would be nice to simply roll the cover over the pit when we're not hunting to keep out rain/snow etc.

Any input welcome. Thank you.

Don't like roll tops.
It makes it to where you can't hunt 360 degrees and limits you to 180.

I hunted out of a pit that had 1 section of garage door over the opening. The tracks had stops built in so it would not fall off.
