Well, I started this 8'x8' stand a while ago.. but we had to take a break for deer season, so I just got around to doing a little finish work on the inside. Now, it still needs a little bit of work, but it is already looking a LOT better.

8' x 8'
supported by 9 6x" x 6" x 12' tall beams
We added a solar charger (which we keep moving around to get the best sunlight), with 2 deep cycle batteries, a wifi camera (not the greatest but we are limited on power) and 2 cell chargers (USB chargers) as well as a 6' red LED light, all controlled by switches inside.

Very comfortable and insulated.

I have 3 feeders in 3 different directions and the camera can pan between all of them.

No, that is not me in the photo.. heh

Looks good. Question about the wifi camera....is it intended to get photos or video of each of the feeders? If so, what kind of range do you have to the feeders and what kind of detail can you get on the camera at each one? Also, what kind of signal is reaching there to enable wifi connection? Curious as it sounds cool!

Buckeye - The wifi camera is so I can log into it and watch for animals while I am stuck at work.. lol It is not great by any means as it cannot zoom in enough, but there are many times I see hogs or deer when I remote in, and it sure is better than having to wait till I pull the trail cams.

Thanks guys! Had fun building it, for sure. Even more fun sharing it with friends and visitors!

No sir, same property. I have a few guys that hunt out there with me on a regular basis and they were building all the other blinds, so since I only needed/wanted to build MY blind.. I figured to do it BIG.. lol

get you some moultrie game-cams and use the Sandisk Eye-FI SD memory cards (WiFi enabled)! (make sure your game-cam supports eye-fi, and many moultries DO have setting for them). Won't need to pull sd card anymore (auto-uploads thru wifi)!

Cool blind.
9 6x6's? what you putting up there, an elephant?
