I've got a (probably) stupid idea

#24
Tons of options for custom mounting or building one from scratch, thought Creamer was to the point of defining how to modify his current blind.

So, are you open to ideas on how to resolve the root cause or are you looking for thoughts on how to modify a blind?
Resolving the root cause...so change my weapon to fit the blind? I was looking for ways to modify what I have to fit what I need, and I think the idea of building a short frame up off the ground is the best idea I have seen. All I will need to do then is customize the shooting window a bit to be sure I can sneak an arrow out of it.

No no, lol, that's not what I meant. The weapon stays, it was the cause/change point in the situation. Because the root cause is understood, I was at the next point in the process of understanding root cause and impact. I read the OP as you already made up u're mind to modify. Some great, out of the box design ideas have been presented that don't go down the path of blind modification and are best fits if they are options. I thought you already ruled them out and we're on the modification path. I too wouldn't hack it up if I didn't have to!

I definitely plan on trying the elevation idea to avoid cutting up the blind. I was hoping someone here would propose a good solution and that was it. What I need to do is prop it up, get inside it, and see how my shooting windows will work. In my head, raising the blind will give me the limb clearance but my shooting windows probably will be too high to work. Hopefully I can modify them without doing too much damage, so we'll see. I wanted to try this over the weekend, but the wind was going to make propping it up a nightmare. I've got time. lol
