Portable alum blind

Postby darcher » Sun Dec 16, 2012 5:44 pm

If you live in western Montana, and want an aluminum, portable blind, get in touch. I will weld it up for you free (Well, maybe a six pack). I have a mig welder with an aluminum spool gun. I have a small project in the months ahead. I have a portable one-man puppet theater in the shape of a big tree trunk. (Stump The Storyteller.) I even have bark cloth that goes around it. I gave performances to elementary school children, but I found that my shoulders just don't hold up so well. A while back I looked at it with new appreciation. Just add some bicycle wheels on each side and it will make a great cart and portable blind for next year! So, if you buy the aluminum pipe and have a design, get in touch. I can build a simple, portable design using wing nuts for quick assembly or help you design something crazy like mine. I'm already getting bored this winter.

Dude, no offense but I don't even know what the heck your talking about. You mean you use a cloth and aluminum stage prop tree for a hunting blind? Are you hoping to bag a five foot Daffy Duck character? No wonder your always complaining about not being able to get the stuff to your hunting spot. Buy yourself a pair of brush trimmers and cut your own blind into a bush on the edge of the river.

I just sit behind a bush and don't move. Works every time.

You guys are a bunch of @******. I made the offer to weld someone a blind. Hunters use them all over the country. The little puppet theater is made of aluminum. I will transform in to a wheeled decoy cart and blind. You are right. Around you mighty, duck slayers, I am pathetic, but it doesn't change the fact that some of you are real @******. For the record, I am a retired school teacher and love working with children. What you missed was the offer. FY

I actually hunt in areas where there is little to no cover and was just thinking about that. What if I had a portable blind I could bring out here. I'm just confused on what exactly you would be trying to put together.

How could a guy not kill any ducks this year? My spots are covered up with thousands upon thousands of birds right now. 21 greenheads is easy pickings this year. Drop that stupid scull boat in the middle of a barley field and hunt out of that if you have to.

LOL. Like you have had any problem killing ducks. The invite is coming. Gotta get the wife and some family hunts taken care of. Will be in touch soon. And I kid you not, if I said 10,000 mallards I'd be lying. I can't count any higher. I had to resort to shooting my O/U so I don't limit out in less than 5 minutes. :biggrin:
