Well the wife and I made a trip yesterday to my little deer lease in Delta co to get the box blind straightened up and wasp free for my son and I Saturday morning..... Low and behold some low life piece of S*** decided they needed my blind more than me and stole it. Last year they got my feeder and trail camera, and now my blind. I officialy have nothing now. I plan on contacting the warden today but it won't do any good, I imagine. Either way, my son and I will be there Saturday morning sitting somewhere and trying to make the best of it. frown

Good idea contacting the GW, for all you know, someone stopped, or dealt with someone hauling a blind that fits your description. Likely the same ones that hit you last time.


I have used 11-12 sq. bales of hay before, with a sheet of plywood on top, not nice, but gets the job done.

I hate thieves!

back in the day, we didn't have blinds, just used brush pile or some other type of object like a bush or cedar tree to break up your pattern. Hand toss some corn, not perfect, but will get you started.

Sorry to hear this. I would take the time after the morning hunt to build a brush blind with your sons help. Nothing would mean more to me than to kill a deer in a blind that was had built and the time spent together to build it.

You can still make an awesome memory with your boy. Hoping for the best for your family.

I agree. I think what bothers me the most is that dad and I built that blind from the ground up and both my son and daughter had their 1st hunts out of it. Oh and my wifes 1st hunt was out of it as well and I took my biggest buck that day.

Just go out and make some memories with your son and don't think about it. Then make some plans to build a new blind and let your son help. My opening weekend hunt was cancelled due to my step-father's passing and then every other weekend hunt is decided by my wife's Alzheimers.

Have a great weekend hunt and I hope the thieves get crushed by the blind they stole.
