I've hunted out of a lotta pits. The best ones I've seen are from quirks welding in ville plate la. If you are in a setup where you only shoot one way-his one sided blind is amazing with all the builtins. I have two of his 2 sides blinds and love em. They are a little "tall" for short shooters shooting at divers or low flying teal.

Here's my two fr this year.

x2 on the blind Wayne referenced. It was nothing more than a typical concrete pit blind but the roof mechanism was impressive. One of those things you see and think "why didn't I think of that".

The roof was an enlarged section of garage door installed in garage door track. The whole shebang sat on a couple railroad ties resting on the sides of the concrete bunker when closed with the rear rails bolted to some angle iron set vertically in the ground, the kind you'd use to hang garage door track from a ceiling. You could pretty much install that contraption on top of any in-ground structure cheaply and easily with little to no maintenance.

Give Wayne a couple months to chew on it, I'm sure he'll engineer a much improved version that can withstand a bomb blast.

That pit we hunted would be very easy and cheap to build yourself (If the water table would allow it). If were setting one up on my own land and not needing to dig up a pit to move it, I would do the concretet wall pit. Dig a hole, drop your form in, secure it and pour. The geese were so close to us Hogman said he was scoping out their boot holesconfused2. Something wrong with that hogman guy. They could not see us at all. The roll top was perfect.

Good point.

Any structure you build in the ground that doesn't have a penetration or weep hole for water to enter can (and will) pop out of the hole it sits in if it's weight is lighter than that of the volume of water it displaces when the earth it's sitting in becomes saturated with water.

Rolling top is nice.


I was checking for excessive salt. If waterfowl has too much salt in their system they get cranky, and salt leaks out when they fly. Google it.

a small gas ran pump is easy to keep and toat around.. think you would save a lot of money going in that direction...

best case scenario is if the level is shot right when you build the stand it will never go under water... but chit happens

We sink the kids beside the blind while we are hunting.

As for pumps-my blinds founder water at least once a year. I have a couple large BFE pumps and it takes about 35 minutes to pump it out.

I do recimmend the sump box in the bottom. You get a lot of water in a blind with 4-5 guys and a dog getting in and our. The box makes it quick and easy to dip a 32 oz gator aid bottle in. It's too much extra weight to take a battery. Both of mine are 200 yards from shore in knee deep water.

I have seen the pics of your set up. I didn't realize the blind was 200 yards out in knee deep water. I bet them ducks have a great big old "Uh Oh" on their faces when the doors fly open. That is as nice a set up as I have ever seen.
