MM77, we use a sectional overhead door panel and the rails to make our blind covers. Use 2x4 posts at each corner extending just over head high when sitting, mount a door rail horizontal on each side, and mount door panel where it will roll to front or rear. Put your fastgrass cover on top of door panel. Gives good cover that can be positioned where you want it and also good rain shelter. (wish I could send a picture but not computer smart enough to know how!)

Well, Well, Well,


I can say It has been an exciting few months since I last posted here. The wife and I have a new edition to the family, (baby girl) So, posting blind pictures has not been priority.
Also, the camera has been with the wife, to take pictures of the baby. (you know how that goes) I only have these two updated pictures. We are almost ready to start Brushing/Painting. The inside walls are almost finished. We really have come a long way, and we're still not done. I hope BOW season doesn't get in the way. I'll be back to post more!

Mallard man, maybe getting the blind to open on little wheels. On the back of the blind maybe put 2 2x4's on the ground at each corner, then at the right angle put 2 more 2x4's going to the top corners and nail them on. Then figure out how to make it so you can put a retractable roof with little wheels that will roll down the 2x4's on there.
