platform blind

Reply
 
Im looking for some tips on building a 3 man platform blind in the middle of my large pond that I hunt. The problem that I think i will have is the blind posts sinking with 3 people in the blind due to bottomless mud. Any advice, plans, or pictures would be great!

2 platforms
use longer 4x4's and build 2 platforms. first platform can sit on top of the mud and keep everything from sinking further. Second platform just above water. First platform may not need to be complete. depending on the mud, sometimes just a frame around the post will do. If the mud is really soft, deck it with 1/4' treated ply.

Bottom
We used to hunt a spot with no bottom. We'd nail a board to two pairs of posts supporting the blind. Before sinking the posts we'd lay an old sheet of tin under the four outermost posts; length ways. Worked like a charm. Say like the ole cajun;'garonteed'.
