Your lucky. Looks like it just got warm, no real damage. More natural looking now.
The plywood was punky so not too much of a loss. The CCA lumber in the blind would have been a big loss…crazy prices!

I bet it was burning fast too. Always wondered to how fast a blind would burn with all of the dead brush on it.

Depends on how much diesel you pour on it.....at least that's what I have heard.

Agree, looks like a great low profile structure blind. The decking should be that difficult to replace. Good job with saving it.

As one who hunted in the days of heating with a bucket of charcoal, I can attest that dried willows will go up pretty darned quick, AND w/o diesel, Grif. Of course, diesel would add to the excitement.

To expen$ive. It’s so darn dry down here I ain’t so sure a hot temper, couldn’t get a fire going.

How about today? Records set near St. Louis and North, probably a lot of places. Over 10" in a few hours. Lots of places underwater this morning that were hard to believe.

This latest round of rain has everything back on track---funny how quick it goes from looking like hell to looking good.

It finally dried up enough to get our dirt work completed and field work done. We disced most of our moist unit and planted Jap Millet and milo…hope to get some Pennsylvania smartweed and wild millet to come on also. Still have some Nodding and arrowhead issues to deal with in one wet unit. On a side note, it is still dry in Carrollton and my persimmon tree has dropped all of its fruit. Crazy weather patterns.
