Depending on the size of the box and height of the tower, it is going to be tough to find many blinds in that price range these days. Fiberglass is the lowest option. T-Box, Dillon, Big Country, etc will be the lower end.

I have towers and plenty of metal to make some if the ones I have don't work. Just need the box. The four we're replacing are old sheet metal blinds we bought about 20 years ago somewhere in Junction then moved them to Three Rivers or Simmons City and all the top are rusted out beyond repair.

There were a couple of dealers in Hallettsville that had good pricing about 6-7 yrs ago when I was looking for fiberglass blinds. One just north of city limits and one in the middle of town. Call Mumme's in Hondo and talk to them to see what they can do for you on buy of 4 blinds at one time. Call L&E and see what they can do also.

Im 20 minutes from L&E in George West, I checked there and they average about 3k a blind. Might have buy two from L&E and build the other two.

I really like my Dillon fiberglass blinds. I have replaced 2 wood blinds that have rotted with Dillon. One is in Missouri that has 45 to 50" of rainfall a year. Been going strong for 6 years. Last one only lasted 3 years.

Sportsman Condo is another good blind (I have the SC2). There are one piece molded plastic. Will never rust and I believe a little cooler in the summer than metal. I have one that is under a shade tree overlooking a 2 acre food plot, nice draw and feeder.

Lastly, Redneck is a good blind. I have one that is 7 years old and still like new. A little faded on the south side, but just like new on the inside.

All three of these are within your budget.

May exceed $1500 if you choose the 8' tower

I think your best chance of staying around $1500 or $1750 or so is a Dillon 4x4 on an 8-10'. Think those other brands are going to be north of $2K as I've pretty much priced them all out myself over the past 1-3 years. Good luck to you.

Same thing I saw on prices, we are probably going to settle for 2 ranch kings or something similar and build two, I built some over the past years out of 100% treated and they're are holding up very well. I'd prefer to hunt out of the ones I built especially when shooting distance and are much more comfortable. You get what you get with the others, sometimes window height isn't right and very little area to rest the rifle on.

You can get a little buck with a 4' tower under $1500.00 ?

If so, please let me know.
Thanks, Larry

Sportsman condo is in that price range, about to buy my 3rd.

Best deal out there, IMO.

If I remember correctly I purchased my Little Buck Ranch King at Ellusive Wildlife in Conroe for around $1500. May have been a bit more with taxes

Saw these guys at the Hunter's Extravaganza this weekend. Blinds were around $1000, but options can add more. I talked price a bit with them and looks like a blind with 5 windows, roof vent, and 8' tower will run about $1900. The blind itself looks like it will last years.

I had built a 8' x 4' blind on 10' tower a couple of years ago and spent about $1500, so the $1900 doesn't seem like a bad deal.

Yep, same here. And they use Deerview windows in those. Very nice blinds.

Thanks Titan. I want to get a new little Buck with the 4' stand. My dealer wants nearly $2000 for it. My wife says no!

Just bought three 4x6 Big Country Blinds without the base and they were under $1500. I like the windows and doors but the shelf needed some adjusting. Other than that, seems like a good blind.

We bought ours in Cross Plains, maybe 2 months ago. Was thinking the standard 4x6 was around $1400 and the hexagon shaped one was just under $1600. Maybe they went up when it got closer to hunting season confused2

I can sell Dillon's 4x6 close to that 1500$ mark.
