Ladies and Gentlemen, you have waited long enough to see what I had in store these past few months, well- thanks to an AT member who wishes to remain anonymous generously donated the plexiglass so you all could have this video, I have constructed a DIY "casper" blind Not only was I able to make this for under $100, I got it all on video...YOUTUBE VIDEO COMING SOON!!!!! Here are a few pictures to warm you up. We still aren't done 100%, but the construction aspect of the project was finished today. there are still a few things that I need to finish in order to complete the video...probably a week or so.

lol im going to try and answer some of your questions in one post...so bear with me. I thought about making it a full enclosure, but I think that kind of defeats the purpose...you can build a shooting house and leave it up year round and deer won't even look twice at it, so the portable one is the one that I went with. The reflections aren't bad at all, the panels are angled down to the ground, so sun won't affect the blind, most of these photos were actually taken while the blind was in direct sunlight. Right now it weighs around 25-30lbs at 4 panels and 12-15lbs 2 panels. I am trying to figure out a way to make it lighter, but still retain its rigidity...this is going to be installment videos, there is going to be a video that outlines how to do this one, and when I come up with videos on how to make it better, they will be up right away. The video itself answers just about all the questions you may have...its pretty straight forward, Ishow you the dimensions, how to cut, what to cut, how to get the angles, how to make it a mirror- even how to make the little bungee ball tent stakes that come with the original, and how to hide from the mob

What did you use on the backside of the panels?
August 17th, 2010, 01:02 PM
Hope nobody shoots at the deers reflection!!
August 17th, 2010, 01:26 PM
the panels are angled down, the deer woul have to be inches away from the blind in order to have a reflection...the blind only reflects the ground in front of it.
