    Wheelchair accessible hunting blinds.

    Have blind, will travel A buddy helped me build this 6x6 blind on an older 6x10 trailer a few years back. I had it at a guys farm the last couple of years and didn't use it last year. I moved it to another farm recently, did some repairs to the trailer(replaced rotten boards on the ramp up the back and the floor) and got it put in place. I'd like to brush it in a bit more but it'll do for now. It'll be a good ML and rifle stand, and deer cross this field all day. I had two does come out while we were brushing it in at 3:00.

    What the deer see.


    What I see. I trimmed the cedar limbs back on the left side after I took this pic.


    View from the rear.


    And here are a couple other blinds that properties and clubs have built for our hunts this year.

        Nice blinds. I wish I owned some land to put some like that out on. I've been using Google Earth to find possible public hunting land.

          Awesome! I wouldn't mind sitting in a blind with that view.

            NQ, I'd much rather be sitting in it in the big deer country of Alberta.....with my Lil' Buddy heater blasting away

            The good thing about it is if I don't have any luck at this setup, I'll hook to it and move it.

            The 32" LED and 5.1 sound goes in next week! I'm still hooking 700 yards of drop cords together.

                  Great job. What did you use to take him?

                    Thanks, Scott! Even though it was a few years ago and a tiny buck (rack-wise), I think I'll always love the pic...

                    Shot him with a Remington Sendero in 7mm Rem Mag, using a 175 gr. Sierra Game King at about 3050 fps MV. Was literally the last minute of the last day of the season and I saw him walking across a field at about 75 yards. Stopped the Jeep, loaded the round, and shot from the door (open window). Dropped him in his tracks with a high shoulder shot. I like to drop 'em like that because trackin' through vegetation ain't easy or necessary! On that farm in eastern WA, shots to 400 yds are possible, so I used the Sendero. It's just plain good. Like me!

                      Nothing like a pic of a buck in the snow. Good job on taking him from your mobile blind. Deer around here, except for the backwoods mountain deer, don't pay much attention to a vehicle. I shot an 8 pointer at 8:30 one morning walking from a patch of woods to a cornfield in front of me to bed down for the day. He was 10 yards out my side window and could care less about the van.

                      I too prefer the high shoulder shot. It'll drop 'em every time. Although I shoot a little less recoil than a 7 mag

                        I think my favorite deer rifle might be my 50 cal T/C Hawken. I think it kicks a tad more than the Sendero, but that's not the reason - it's the traditional elements!

                        I think one of my 6.5 x 55's may prove the 6.5 to be about the "perfect deer round," but I haven't hunted with one yet... Too many choices!!!

                          I LIKE having lots of choices. I have a Rem Sendero 300 win mag(the Buckmaster's gun of the year from several years ago) and a 7mag but almost NEVER shoot either one. My deer guns of choice now are my 243 wssm to reach out there, and my little Rem model 7 7-08. Compact and topped with a Leupold 2x7 makes it a great woods rifle.

                          I sighted in my CVA optima ML last week and with 150 gr of powder, she packs a wallop. Kills on both ends but accurate.

                            Your 7mm-08 is an OUTSTANDING deer round!!! The 6.5mm-08 (260 Rem) is ballistically identical to the 6.5 x 55. Folks seem to love 'em all!!! Low recoil, moderate (meat-saving) velocity, and they Git 'Er Done!

                            I've used a 243 Win with 100 gr. Hornady's at 3000 fps MV out to 204 yards on whitetail does. (Lighter, faster bullets destroy too much meat at closer ranges.) While they did kill the deer with one shot each, my personal opinion after forensic examinations is that I want something heavier and bigger caliber than 6mm for 200 yds or beyond, especially on bigger deer. I'd be comfy with the 6.5 x 55 a bit past 300... JMO, YMMV!
