I've done it before, but with the windows open on the pop-up blind it didn't hold heat too well.

If they can smell the propane they can smell the meat eater in the blind.
I suspect propane burning does not scare deer at all.

A question on a related note: Are there any concerns with carbon monoxide when using one in an enclosed area? I'm thinking about building a wooden box blind for late season firearms hunts someday, but don't want to kill myself if the blind is too airtight.

We use them all the time in box blinds, although we also usually have at least the main shooting window open

Go to local hardware store and buy a 2-3in vent and put one near floor and one near ceiling and you will be fine have been using heaters in my sturgeon shack for years and never had any issue and that's air tight with no windows open. If I sit in a enclosed stand most of the time I at least have my highest suspect window open just so its less chance of noise if one puts the sneak on me
