What are your best ones you have and the stories behind them? I'll get a few started

Bed & breakfast - closest to the house, easiest to hunt and you can wake up later.

Pudding - first guy that hunted it had a blow out

Beer blind - had a few while it was being built

Little house on the prairie - sits up ontop of a hill overlooking the pasture

Way down yonder on the chatahoochie - only blind near a creek on the property

Death march - two portly fellows tagged along on a "death march" while scouting for where to put a blind

Normandy - sits ontop of a cliff with a large sandy area below

Same here but counterclockwise. 1-2-3-4-5-6-7. 6 and 7 are my favorites. Scenic, high elevation with views of the countryside.

Here's a few from the lease I just got off of. The place came with feeders and broken-down blinds from a previous, bigger hunting operation run by the LO. Most of the feeders had numbers on them.

Blackjack (21)
Funky Shaft
Child's Play
Tequila Sunrise (faced east)
Back 40
Horseshoe Bay
Jungle
Mi Casa
Lucky13
The Creek

& Barely Legal (#18) (Disgusting name for a lease of fellow church members. I was shocked when it came out of my mouth when we were trying to figure out what to call it.)

brings back some fond memories from when I was a kid hunting with my dad and a bunch of his buddies.

Shakey's Pizza Parlor, shortened to Shakey's ... guy built it with left over 2x2 and interior paneling, 4 walls and a roof, no floor, sitting on the ground without a chair, very unstable. The wind shook it to high heaven and when you put your gun out the window the whole stand would shake and make a lot of noise from the finish nails pulling against the paneling. (west of Llano)

the birds nest ... was a old tall tower (probably 20 feet to the floor) that was left by previous hunters, sitting up on a high ridge and you could see almost the entire 800 acre ranch. My dad used to say it was so high, that if you fell out of it, a bird would build a nest in your arse before you hit the ground. (west of Llano)

brush pile ... old cedar brush pile that we hollowed out the middle of and put a folding chair.

platform ... huge old live oak tree with very long branches running almost parallel to the ground, we built a platform, about 8x10 to hunt from. (top of White Bluff).

cottonwood ... was actually a sycamore tree, but everyone called them cottonwood in our area. Very tall tree that the limbs formed a pretty good ladder to get to the top where it forked. nailed a couple of 2x4 across the fork and 2x6 to sit on. the seat was probably over 20 feet high and when the wind blew, the whole top of the tree would sway 4-6 feet. I killed my first buck from that stand in about 1964 (top of white bluff).

My how times have changed. Growing up my Dad was on a lease for many years (1950s) around Lampasas. They somehow found old junked trucks and cars - they would haul them out to the lease and set them on the ground and use as blinds. You would sit in the front passenger or driver seat and roll the windows down and hunt. I remember sitting in them in the dark and mice were running across my legs -

"Towering Inferno" - Uncle had an office chair bolted to 2x4's way up at the top of a mesquite tree (about 30 foot up.) He would smoke cigarettes while he bowhunted from that stand. He had a 24' extension ladder to help get him up there.

"The Bee blind" - Blind was taken over by "possible" Africanized bees. He still ain't got rid of those pests!

My first buck was taken at age 13 while hunting a place outside of Crockett. The stand I was hunting was called The Penthouse Condo. A tall oak tree with a 2x4 platform about 20 feet up. It worked lol.

Just my .02,

Out in Arkansas we hunt public so we don't name blinds, we name trees. We got the big tree in plot 3, the medium tree in plot 2, and the good luck tree. We call it good luck tree because there's a 50% chance you fall while trying to hang your stand. We have the most pics of big deer there though so it's worth it

Hunted a members ranch a few years back...... as we are driving to the blind he says “be careful when you climb up in the stand, a ringtail cat lives in there”. This blind was/is about 20’ in the air with no windows.

The next evening we are sitting at his house and I say you should name that blind......


The cathouse blind


His wife didn’t like that, I was at his ranch several years later and he was calling it the cat blind, LMAO.
