    Use them and like them. Very versatile and easy. Hide great. Wooden dowel rods it comes with are garbage, replace them with rebar. Suggest painting rebar so you don’t get gloves all rusty.

    We made one out of composite deck boards and conduit. Drilled holes in the boards and ran bungee cords through them. Killed a lot of birds behind that blind. It's not the lightest they way we made ours, but we mostly boat in to use it.

    Thanks for the info. I ordered one on line to use as a pattern and I will make some home made ones to expand blind when needed. No one in my area sells them. Got one on sale for $69.99. Thanks again

    I hunt with ducksinwv. I actually built the blind. I pounded flat the one end of the conduit and drilled two hole in it. I screw in a thumb screw in the bottom and leave it attached so when the top screw is removed the legs will swivel up. I use furniture fasteners to screw the thumb screws in. I need to come up with a better system for the legs. But these work so I haven't changed them yet.
