Building a shipping pallet hunting blind – Part 2

So this week I only had six hours at the cabin… Had an Octoberfest to go to that night and needed to take care of some business in the morning…

When I got there we went right to work. After having our trailer tip several times last week we improved our trail. We removed some of the high spots and filled in the low spots. As this is a new wing on our trail system it is still very much a work in progress.

After the trail improvements we brought the tools and building materials up and started. First we framed the roof and added bracing. After we installed the pallets on the roof.

These pallets came from a winery and were heavy. The structure had no problem supporting me on the roof so I hope it holds up.

lastly we installed tar paper on the roof… we will be laying some branches up there to help keep it in place…

So for the well under $50 we have a nice ground level hunting blind to keep us out of the weather… maybe next year we will add a raised on up the hill… maybe…
