    Going to build one around 12 ' long or two 6 footers from square aluminum tubing and wanted to know if you guys would know where I could get some camo material like they use on the commercially made A frames.
    I have a few ideas but wanted to know if the material was available and if it had some veg straps on it.
    Thanks
    Terry

    Ebay is where you get the deals on camo cordura nylon. You,ll have to sew your own straps on if you go that route. The straping also can be purchased there.

    I have a 5'x30' length of Natural Gear 600D Cordura I would sell you. I bought it for a project that I never got around to doing.

    I made a homemade A frame a last year, we used wind blocker material and then just hung light gauge chicken wire over it and zip tied grass to it. So far its worked great! IMG_1812.JPG IMG_1813.jpg

    Is that a permanent setup or are you packing it in each time? The hide is awesome

    Looks great. What did you use to build the frame with?

    its portable, I usually just grab some sicks and a little extra brush (like in the picture) when we drop it to break it up a bit extra but honestly it works just fine without doing that too. its light enough for two guys to carry easily but it also fits in the back of a truck with the bed down so usually we just do that.

    the frames all made out of 3/4 conduit, I didn't take any pictures of the frame when I made it but this is what I used as a model and mines basically identical just with a door at one end and a cross bar at the other
