How do you make a hunting blind out of pallets?
Just staple roofing felt around the inside or outside of it. Then wrap it with camo burlap, screw some leafy branches to it (or pine limbs), erect it on an elevated platform and you have a shooting house instead of a ground blind. Add another stack of two pallets to the front side and now you’ve got a two-man blind.
Do pop up blinds spook deer?

Can you shoot through the mesh on ground blinds with a rifle?
says DO NOT shoot a firearm through the mesh. Yes, snipers shoot through mesh but they are far enough back from the mesh that any muzzle flash will NOT contact the mesh. The blind companies recommend against shooting through the mesh because of the fire hazard.
