    Making it myself I will be making my own shooting windows and it is way oversized so movement will be easy. Any advice on the windows would be greatly appreciated

    Post pics of your process! interested in what you're going to use for the "bones" of the structure.

    Maybe real thin pvc?

    I and many others would more than likely suggest the "Primos Double Bull Deluxe Ground Blind, Truth Camo"
    The Double Bull Deluxe is one of the best deer blinds on the market designed with the great materials to blend perfectly with your hunting environment. Unlike other blinds, this 2 person ground blind offers a 180g front silent window that allows you to adjust it to a better height to fit your shooting position. To add to its profile, the Primos comes with stakes that let you anchor the blind to the ground to prevent it from moving with strong winds.
    There are some minuses - The blind is quite heavy and the buckles are not correctly sewn.
    On Amazon it's $254.99 - $3,597.99

    ave you ever looked into the rhino blinds? I think they are better than promos but yes primos blinds are a great option. It’s worth the look. You may switch over

    I highly recommend against Rhino blinds...mine didn't last a season without broken poles. Then they didn't honor their warranty and charged me $50 for more poles. Next season same thing more poles broke. This was under my normal conditions which include snow during the season. It can snow here in October so a blind needs to be able to hold up to that. Rhino does not IME

    I've had Primos Double Bull Deluxe left out in way worse conditions with no issues in many seasons.
    If you live in Southern states with no snow then buy whatever you want, but if you live North of the Ohio River you better buy a Primos Double Bull or maybe a Baronett Ox blind.

    I guarantee I see more snow than you do and I’ve never had a problem with them. I live 40 miles south of the Canadian border but you are right everyone has an opinion. I just put a 2x4 from the ground up to the center of the roof when I’m not in it. You can build a blind with plywood and 2x2s for cheaper than either option if we wanna get technical about strength

    HME Executioner 350. If you have a Dunham sports in your town you can pick one up for $99 regularly $179.
    I like it for the panoramic windows.

    Have you tried the barronett ox blinds. Have had a big Mike set up for 4 years. The chipmunks finally tore it to shreds. Bout the ox4 and it may be the most well made blind I have ever seen. My dad liked it so much he bout the ox5. It is huge. He put in a big chair, table, and a huge cooler.
