Last season was the first time I built my own box blind. Everywhere I looked on the seemed to want to sell me plans. So I decided to take some pics as I built it and this is what I came up with.

Did an octagonal blind that is about 6'-5" to outside framing. Have not built it but plans should make it easier cut it does have lots more cutting than a standard square blind. If you want it emailed please PM me your email and add "Octagonal Blind" in the subject.

Well did a set of plans for a (6) sided blind. They are very similar to the Octagonal except the number of sides. Comes to 6'-0 3/4" short side to 7'-0" to the long side. If you want these plans PM me and put "Hexagon blind" in subject.

Basic cost assuming all new materials and plywood not OSB. OSB will save about $40 per blind. (no paint is included either. This will give a general idea of cost for blinds as shown.

4x6 complete = $430
hexagonal blind = $400
octagonal blind = $440


I hope these plans help either build a blind or can be useful as a starting base to build by. I don't think I will be doing any more.

BTW if anyone builds from these plans could you send me some photos and how it turns out. I know they may not be perfect put hopefully not to bad.

HELP NEEDED: If you run into a question/clarification on the drawings please shot me a PM. I will answer as best I can in a timely manner. I will also fix it on the drawing for future plans I submit. There may be a few mistakes or something may not be as clear as it is to me. Sometimes putting on paper what is in your head misses a few things.

One clarification noted;
The angle for the octagon blinds is 45 degrees on short angle. ' / '
The angle for the hexagon blinds is 60 degrees on short angle. ' / '

Here is my new 4' x 8' deer stand I set up for hunting in the tall timber of East Texas. It was built by students within the Department of Agriculture at Texas State University for the cost of materials. I cant wait to stay dry and warm this hunting season.

I decided to use an old camping trailer as the base for a deer blind. It was all built with free wood scrounged from Craigslist--and it is ugly, but it gets the job done. We can tow it where ever we want on the property. Used a sheet of rubber roofing for the top and left over plexiglass for windows. $10 for the "extreme drought" brown paint. I think we already shot 5 deer from it this season.
