Hello Mike, thought I’d pass along a few pics of a couple deer blinds we made out of old swing/play sets for kids.
Start with the wooden frame of an old play set, similar to the picture below. The old sets we used were both headed to the landfill. You can often find free ones in local papers or on Craigslist.
Add a few sheets of cheap plywood sides and roof with screws, match the paint to your hunting area and they’re ready to go. The blinds are great for scent control and offer a steady shooting rest. Add a comfortable arm chair and you can sit and hunt all day. Good luck and safe hunting. –Kclap from VA
