Gonna build a few blinds to pay some unexpected bills. What size would be better. I know 5x7 is odd ball for materials but seems a little extra room wouldn't hurt.

5x7. Bigger is always better. I hunted out of a 4x6 last season and it was a beating, was def a one person blind. Just my .02

5x7 is much more comfortable,allows the "lean back" action.

5x7 of your choices. My dad just bought an all seasons 5x5 blind and it seems like it has lots more room than my 4x6

I hunt regularly in a 4x6 with 2 people and never felt cramped or uncomfortable even with 2 office chairs but 5x7 would be nice as well.

Years ago I had a 4x7 shipping container, it was like a blind and a cabin in one. 2 adults can easily hunt out of it, if only 1 it will have all kinds of extra space.

Bigger is better but not if it's too heavy and hard to fit in a trailer or pickup truck bed. That's why I like light weight 4x6 designs.

Light weight is good, two person erecting. I made mine so that all sides and roof were separate and erected in the field by one person even 10 ft elevated.

5x7 is a great size, especially if you are hunting with kids.

Weight is really my main concern....Would like to try fiberglass eventually...

Most of my guns have a 26 or 28in barrel which is hard to get out of a window in a 4' blind. I build mine 7x8 for my long guns and always have at least one kid with me. I've built some 8x8 which is what I'll build them from now on just to minimise cutting.

We hunt 4x6's. Makes more sense in materials heh. We do ours a little different than most though. I build them deeper instead of wider. When 2 people are hunting I like it better to sit behind my kids/wife. this way I dont restrict their shooting at all. It makes it harder to have 2 shooters in the stand, but we rarely have 2 guns in the stand without 1 being a sidearm
