LOL, I enjoy ice fishing, as long as the fish are getting pulled out of my auger hole! I hunted a ground blind once, the wind flap about drove me insane. They do work on young deer atleast, the two small does I saw had no idea I was in the blind, until they caught my wind. I always wanted to make a sled type wooden ground blind for the old man, he gets too cold to quick anymore.ORIGINAL: passin through
Oh! Ain't got that problem. We only had 5-6 good frosts last year. I'm more the iced tea kinda guy than an ice fisherman...sounds cold[:D]

Mine doesn't have all that much in the way of amenities. I built it for when the kids were young, and they weren't quite ready for a treestand. We've taken a few deer out of it. It makes a nice refuge from the rain and wind. It wouldn't take much to put plexiglass windows in it and heat it. However, our freezers are full before it gets too cold.
Mice ate the first set of curtains. The current set stays in a 5 gallon bucket and gets put up as needed. I weighted them so they don't blow around as much.
Since it's been up, deer and turkey seem to ignore it completely. I've had deer brush past close enough to touch and turkeys within a few feet of it.
