look at Illinois forums. crab orchard page 5 for lids.
After seeing that.... The pits I used too hunt suck! That's awesome!!!
Where is the brass pole ?
When we built our pit we discussed having a concrete top and decided against it. The ring deal looks good however when the geese get really wary we can touch up the exterior of the lids so there is no trace of a pit. Picture below shows son Kevin inspecting everyone's lid before he hops in. Even the ducks at time require special care on the lids. Lynn
Miss my Platte River valley.
I helped design the swing lids in the picture. They work great. Can be made to fit a wood top, as well. They are offset to avoid hitting one another when opening. They create a very safe opening when getting up to shoot because a right handed shooter must use his trigger hand to swing open the lid. Most of the time, birds don't know you're there until you shoot. They ride about 4" above the pit top. Cap

Lid laid flat, notice the wood screw hold the canvas in place
Lid cover folded over to the screw for entry into pit and or 1/2 the lid for 1 shooter
Lid folded over. The screw holds it in place
Ice behind the pit. Birds want to land in the big opening
where did you get the canvas at? How long have the covers lasted?
