I have these towers on my farm on two plots. What blinds would you all suggest that I could put on this, that would allow me to be comfortable and be able to stand and shoot.

Any suggestions will be very appreciated. Thank you!

Occasionally the right spot doesn't have the right tree. My son had this situation last year so he set up a cheap tent blind, brushed it in and rapped a ghost blind around the front. When the wind was right, he said deer would walk past and never look his direction.

I looked up your setup. 48" square platform will make it tough to find a blind which you can stand up and shoot from unless you are willing to buy a blind which overhangs the edges. Barronnett blinds are very nice and we have a nice selection of them. I have been impressed with their quality. As stated though, most are larger than 48" platform. You might have to build something. Not sure how much weight it will sustain. You better build it light.

Like Phil said, you are limited by them only being 48" wide. The Barronett Blinds are awesome for guys our size, but you may not be able to find one with that base. I have had Primos (pre-Double Bull), Ground Max (pre-Primos) Barronett, and Ameristep. All were decent blinds.

I plan on building it a bit bigger than the platform just to for tie downs to stretch the blind. You got a link I can check some of these out?

This is awesome!
