Was thinking about getting my deer view windows tinted. Was thinking about mirror tint so it reflects the trees, grass, and other natural surroundings. Anyone ever done this or seen it?

If they're glass, tint will work. If they're lexan the tint won't stick. You can get new lexan cut that's already tinted, and it's reasonably cheap, but I haven't seen it mirrored. But as far as the mirrored goes, 1. it won't blend into your blind when they're closed, and 2. it'll be more noticeable when they're open. I'd just go with regular tint if it were for my blind.

I have the camo screens on one of our blinds with deer view windows. Nice.

Wife made me some camo curtains for the windows. Need to make sure the bottom is on a rod so that they don't flop around. Slide open just enough to see out of.

Shade cloth normally used on green houses works pretty well.
We use electric fence wire stretched above the window and tie it on with small tiewraps.

Also hang a piece from the ceiling in the middle of my 4x8 blind between shooters.
When we have a sounder hit the feeder hard and heavy, it keeps the hot brass from left shooter off of right shooter!


Cheers,

When the sun hits the mirrored tint it will stick out like a sore thumb.

Use curtains, not tint. Deer can still see movement through tint.
