I been putting metal on the outside, roll insulation, then 1x boarding and batting on the inside. I also wrap with plastic to seal them a little. It makes them really easy to heat and limits the smell that escapes. I get the metal cheap. I would be afraid that osb would eventually rot. The last two i built were on our property. I wanted them to last a really long time

Yep we were using osb for the sides but treated for the base/legs. We did the same and got the messed up paint to paint with and then went over with spray can spray for camo. Paint rock, deer view are the best. I will have the tinted flip windows in this one as well.

Thanks for the reply’s y’all…will post pics when we get it built and all.

Your other option is to build a raised platform and put a popup blind on it. Take them down at the end of each season. Never have a wasp nest to deal with.

Popup sizes don't match well with 4' plywood, so I just use PT 2x8's for the floor.

Problem is scent control. Main point besides comfort/kids etc of these is scent as there is no good option for putting the stands/access etc

Academy offers windows as well. Deer View is who I use but lead times are lengthy. If build another shooting house in the near future I will probably check into the academy windows.

They are pretty much identical to Deerview windows. I checked them out a while back in the Academy here...stopped in to get 2 one day and they were out. Got online to order them and they weren't available for pickup or home delivery. Only difference in them is Academy only offers 2 sizes (12x36 and 12x12) while deerview offers around 14 sizes in the same style window. Deerview is a little bit cheaper also (compared to the same size windows at Academy)

If the wind is wrong, don't hunt that stand. I have lost count of the number of times I woke up, checked the wind for my stands, and returned to bed.

Only time I hunt regardless of the wind, is when I am out of state, and the guide/outfitter tells me where to sit.

At home, on my place, I won't sit on the wrong wind.

There is no scent control other than hunt them when the wind is right no matter what stand you put up

I beg to differ…hunted out of a redneck blind and had deer surrounding us with the windows closed. Same with other blinds with the windows closed. You have to make a quick shot through when you open that window. Of course I try to only hunt when the wind is right but sometimes it’s tough when it swirls

May be one out there that is completely air tight but pretty sure you would suffocate if it was. Put a smoke bomb in one then see if any smoke leaks our that should give a decent representation for how air tight your blind is

It doesn't have to be air tight to prevent a deer from smelling you. And how many times has the wind switched while you were hunting? When it does, close the windows. Or at the camp the wind is out of the west, but where the stand is, you get there and it's out of the north. Crap happens. Make the most of it. Now sitting a climber is a different story. I will climb down if the wind switches if I know there is a good buck in there I am after. But shooting houses cover a lot of stuff up

Windows make 0 difference if it is not air tight. I can sit in a shooting house with every windows and door open and spook every deer if the wind is wrong. Climber or a box they smell you if the wind is incorrect period

Yep, deer are going to smell you from a shooting house on the wrong wind, every time.

I don't agree with this. Been surrounded by deer numerous times after the wind switched and never got busted with rhe windows shut.

No luck too it. All mine are sealed with spray insulation and sealed windows. I actually don't even have problems in the sportsmans condos I've got. It's not a good idea to hunt with a bad wind but switching winds are gonna happen.
