I've seen a ton of threads around where others have made their own. Might try a search and see what turns up.

I saw a set made from wire shelving, they looked great and looked easy to make.

I've used electric galvanised pipes to build layout boat doors. They are easy to bend and It wil cost you a fraction of the price asked by the makers. You can cut and weld them also.

There is nothing better than hunting with friends and then crackin' a couple of cold ones afterwards.
