This past weekend we decided to spend the money on a permanent blind and do it right – Go Muddy, or stay home! The local store had sold the tower and only had the blind. After making a call, we drove 100 miles to another store to buy both, but their blind was baddly damaged (apparently dropped). Fortunately they agreed to sell us the tower. The next day we pulled out trailer load to our hunting camp and were anxious to get it up. After two hours of more scouting and analyzing conditions for best permanent location – 360 visibility, deer gun, deer bow, coyote, turkeys, spring flooding, level ground, future food plot planning, strategic access under different wind conditions in the dark, through the snow, etc, etc …. I got my way. ;o) We were very impressed with the weight, strength and design of the tower. Assembly is definitely a two-person-with-skid steer-undertaking! It also helped to follow the directions closely and have the best tools for the job. Hardest part? Searching for nut and lock washers dropped in the tall grass. (Do you offer marriage counseling for couples who tackle joint assembly?) This blind is fabulous! Well designed, well built, sturdy, insulated comfort, but most importantly, it is ideally functional and offers us the best opportunity to observe and capture wild game of all sorts and sizes. We will add the blackout/camo screen package for the windows, bow hook and another Muddy chair. Looking forward to an occasional cat nap in our bull blind too!
