    Each panel is 52' wide so welded together it's 8'6" by 5' I wanted it plenty big for 3 people...

    we use this concept for about everything around our farm. we have dog pens, chicken houses, a green house and store our winter wood in them. only difference is that we use treated 2x4s as the base and then tack the cattle panels to them and brace with a few 2x4s at one end. 2 cattle panels will fit perfectly inside an 8ft 2x4 sqare. Then just cover with tarp and you have a decent shelter that will stand up to a big snow even but is light enough to be movable as you need to. honestly never thought about using one as a deer blind though.

    The 3rd pic in the first post of this thread shows where it's welded. You can see the soot from welding at each spot where the wire meets the base.

    My daughter did the camo.I think she did pretty good lol...the Windows have removable shoot through mesh with slide curtains for complete darkness... I'm gonna weave cedar in the wire mesh when I set it out, you won't see the tarp when [​IMG]
