The Blind for 30 is done!

Over the last few years we have been dying to hang a set in the core bedding area of one of our farms. The problem has always been there really isn’t a good tree for a set so we never pursued anything there. Then one day the light came on. USE THE SILO! At first it was a funny what if conversation. Then another year passed watching tons of deer walking right past that spot and the frustration got the best of us. We took the bull by the horns and compiled all the necessary materials. We used old telephone poles to support the 16 foot circular deck we built inside. Next was the roof and after a little help from an engineer with design we used old power pole cross members and built a 16 foot octagon and sheeted it with metal roofing. One giant boom truck and a beautiful day later and the blind is done! Now all that’s left is the hunting plot that will surround it and we should be spying on whitetails from a fortress 🙂

  1. It was fun helping you guys out. I can’t wait for you guys to shoot one out of that thing!

  2. Haha, thats incredible! Talk about a feat of hunting engineering!

  3. That is Awesome! I want a Silo!

  4. That’s awesome! Who needs good trees when you’ve got silo’s, engineers, and boom trucks at your disposal?

  5. That is a great idea guys… cant wait to see when you kill a big dandy buck out of it!

  6. Alright, I need predictions right now…..give me the top 3 bucks you’ve identified that you guys think you can kill out of the silo.

    • Well at that spot there will be a 6 yo 170, a four year old 160+ and a few nice 140’s. And then you always have the what if stranger buck 🙂

  7. Alright, now this is just kick a$$ So be honest, were you watching bone collectors and T-Bone in that silo when the light bulb went off in your head? Weatherproof, check. Ultimate scent shield, check. Food plot, check. I’d say it’s only a matter of time until we see one of the white bros sitting behind another giant. Way to think outside the box.

    • I knew this was coming! The answer is NO NO No. We had already talked about this before that episode aired. It did make me laugh though when I saw that 🙂 That episode did show just how successful the idea can be.

  8. I have never seen that episode. I will have to check it out!

  9. ya’ll are rediculous lol good luck in that thing though!
