    Happy Thanksgiving All! Curious to see what most of you are using for windows in your deer blinds. I was leaning towards Deer view but seem their quality might be slipping according to some reviews online. So I'm curious to see if that's just an unhappy customer or what people have had the best luck with on here.

    We mostly have used plexiglass, but every so often we get some smaller windows out of demo houses or replacing windows.

    I make my own wooden frames and use the simple Deer View hinged window to keep condos air tight. The only quality issue I had was that one set arrived broken (not their fault), but they sent me a new set right away. YMMV.

    not overly impressed w/ deerview......i built octagon 2-3 years ago so have 8 windows of the deluxe hinge windows, so they are the framed ones, i would say 7 out 8 don't close "flush" and some of them super tight to frame and when mounted vertical, the rain hits the window and actually follows the window on the bottom as they all have a gap between frame and window and drip line is on the inside of the blind inside of either dripping on outside or dripping in the window channel and out the weep holes, my window sills all have water marks on the inside and likely going to be rotten.

    also would say if intend to run heater go w/ double pane and don't even bother w/ single pane.....and if i have learned anything after 3-4 builds of my own is i will only buy pre-fabbed stands anymore, so much happier. I prefer 360 hunting blinds, IMO nothing better out there and quite honestly after add up all the wood, hardware, time, etc. have price of one you buy.

    A lot of people don’t consider the time it takes to build one, even precovid, when prices were cheaper. It is nice building it yourself for the pride and getting it how you want. With todays manufacturers, you can get a blind in just about any shape or size you want. You just have to decide how much money you are willing to invest.
