It's that time of year, saw lots of people clearing leases this weekend. If your blind has a tin roof, make sure it's on good or strap it down. Guy in front of me east of Goldthwaite on 84 ripped the tops off his . Fortunately I saw it coming and didn't catch a grill full of metal.

I have a huge blind to haul to the lease soon. When I picked it up and brought it to my shop the wind it caught was terrible. It is 8' long, 6' deep and 6' tall. I learned that when I take it to the lease I will be taking all the floor, walls and roof off and transport it as just the frame.

Built a number of 4'x6'x7' blinds with tin roof. Have to make 200 mi run on I-20 to get to lease. Load blind on trailer so that side facing truck is the one that I've bend over the tin and screw tin down so that the wind will not get under roof. Never lost one yet and run 65/70 all the way.

An idea. We built our blinds in sections. With 24 bolts the roof walls and floor all come apart and can stack flat on a trailer or even pickup bed to haul.

Just look back at Rab's threads and his loading prowess. The bar is set pretty low. He does manage to get it there though.

I'm picking up two from Stompy next weekend. Wasn't nervous about the 70 mile transport until I read this thread. Gonna bring lots of straps, screws, a couple of drills with charged batteries, just in case.

You get that new trailer up and running and I'll let you school me Sir. We'll get it moved to the lease no problem. Those guns of yours can handle the 2200 pounds I bet.
