Of course, you don’t want to set up your hunting blinds where there are no deer passing by. You want to set it up in places where deer are known to frequent. You’re gonna have to scout the area thoroughly first.

Step 1 – Secure the foundation of your deer hunting blinds

You can use tree trunks to secure your blinds’ foundation. Tree trunks are very sturdy and they’re easy to set-up. The trick here is to find a group or cluster, at least forming a 4-sided floor area.

Step 2 – Secure the walls and roof of your blinds

By using a Paracord and wood laying on the forest floor, you can create makeshift wall/ceiling for your blinds. This is the most tedious part as you’ll be selecting wood to fit the structure. Don’t use nails. Once you have these walls up, it’s time to add layers of leaves and wood.

Step 3 – Use Material Laying On The Floor
