I am going to make modifications to my blind this year. I am going to put swing gates to shoot out of this year. Hopefully help with conceal better. Before I build them has anybody built some Before. Pics would be great.

I don't have any pictures but build your gate frame, then weld or if wood nail bull panel to it. Cut out the size hole you want, then cut a bull panel about two inches bigger than the hole so it rest on first panel. Wire the bottom to hold it in place. Have this on all my blinds and it works perfect

have you ever hunted much out of a blind with flip doors or a roll top pit? they do conceal you...very well. But, if you are shooting at birds without their feet down and wings back, they gain 10-15yds on you before the first shot is fired depending on the wind. we have just went with framing out individual holes on our blinds and brushing that area very well with smartweed or reeds so that when you hit it standing up out of the hole, your gun or arm doesn't hang like it would with limbs. This has helped a lot with getting rid of the open hole appearance of a duck blind.

For a flip cover, I got some conduit and bent it into a rectangle then tacked it together. Zip tied a welded wire mesh to the rectangle. Then used conduit holders that were a little oversized to mount it to the front of the blind but not be too rigid when we flipped them out.

Worked great and only cost a few bucks each.

I am going to construct a flip cover that I can detach if I don't like it.
