    Last Friday we acquired two old truck sleepers to make into deer blinds and spent the weekend gutting them (hard, dirty work). Monday we ordered two 48x12 and two 12x12 Deer View fold up glass windows for each. The units are each 5'x8'.

    One is planned to go on an 8-10' tower, the other on a trailer. Each has a locking door.

    We're a 62/59 couple and I love that she likes sitting in the stand with me (unlike my first wife). We'll be comfortable, regardless of the weather, with a heater and swivel/tilt office chairs.

    The adventures continue.

    I was just thinking and planning out two stands for next year. I want to make one close to the house, for a tree house/deer stand for my daughter and I want to put another box stand where I hunt.
    the links that I found helpful so far are
    A DIY guide on building a box blind - hunting blind, deer blind
    Anyone build their own elevated box blind?
    Elevated Deer Blind
    Need help with an elevated hunting blind

    If anyone has anyother helpful links please post them, I am finding a lot of rifle, but I am getting stuck in planning the openings for archery.

    Those Deer View long fold back windows can be mounted vertically for archery.

    If you have a place near that buys up warehouse fixtures pallet racks are cheap. A pair of 14' x 8" x 2ス' racks with stringers cost me $100. Basically I built a garden shed and but it on the pallet rackes. Locked the stringers in place o nthe uprights with bolts and anchored the building to the stringres with L shaped brackets. Very sturdy and quite (a have a little boy that likes to move around a lot too)

    I have a little over twenty acres in Pennsylvania behind my house. When I bought the place my neighbor already had a deer stand in the prime location and I let him keep on hunting there. He passed away a few years ago and I am finally getting to hunt there. I decided I wanted the deer stand of my dreams and I have got a good start on it. It is 16 feet high and 8 foot square.

    How do you anchor that to the ground?? Just curious as I am planning one with similar pallet racks.

I've got a basic plan but any input would help. Thanks, Josh
    Wilkesjb10... I did the same thing recently. I built a 4' x 8' box frame using 2"x6" PT frame and then 2"x4" PT joists. The flooring was 3/4 CDX plywood. The walls were basic framed 2x4 framing studs and were 6' high to allow me to stand up and stretch. I have a 30" wide door in the center on the back side. There are shooting windows all the way around the hinge up to provide shading and protection from rain. The inside is carpeted with black executive back office chairs. The roof is a brown Ondura that has about 14" overhang front and rear... not real noisy during rain like tin would be. I did use the Levolor brackets and used 12' PT 4x4s for height. The windows are 14" in height (only planned to rifle hunt out of). I painted the bottom of the 4x4s with exterior green paint. To anchor the stand I installed forged eye-bolts through the levolor brackets and linked chain coming to a center point underneath and then used a huge camo ratchet strap (30k lb I think) to a 4' hurricane anchor sunk in 800 lbs of concrete.
