    I've looked into their product/web site but that's as far as I've reached. I plan on making some permanent stands this summer in an octagon shape so no blind spots or corners. I've considered some of the widows that home builders use that slide up and down and are double panes. There's a small road side budiness near my farm that buys and sells windows at a decent price. The key is finding the right sizes for my particular build. I do believe that Deerview will customize windows to your particular blind but I've yet to inquire on the cost. Kinda afraid to! Lol. Those that have used Deerview in my area and up north have been pleased with the overall function/durability.

    I have them in my blind and only used one year and have no issues with them. They are the hinge window and are light weight and affordable. It took awhile to get them because I understand they are a small operation and they are made per order.

    I guess I’m looking for the differences in the economy vs the deluxe
    vs the slider,etc. The prices,considering the cost of a pre-made complete blinds like say a Redneck, aren’t too outrageous. I just can’t figure out exactly which ones I want to use. Their website doesn’t show very many detailed views of the windows themselves and their construction. Plenty of photos of home made blinds but it is kinda hard to see how well the windows actually fit and function.

    I am planning on building atleast one permanent blind this summer with more to follow. And plan on making it octagon aswell. My plan was to have some plexiglass cut and then use toggle clamps to get a good seal. Put some stainless angle across the top and bottom for a drip edge of sorts.

    But that may all change when I go to build it!

    I used sliders from Menards - 48" wide and 24" tall for $64. It was important for me that both sides would slide. Most sliding windows have one side fixed. Downside is these are single pane - thus fog up faster in cold weather if you try to use a propane heater. Next time I may spring for dual pane glass.

    With the large windows you get a great view. however when the deer start piling into the food plot I use thin plywood sheets painted flat black in various widths to lean against the windows to hide behind.

    Bow killed a 152" 10 pointer out of it.

    I just received the shipment of my deer view windows. Some might remember that a member was selling 2 elevated box blinds about a month ago. Well I bought them. Ordered 8 hinged deer view windows to go in them.
    Look like really good quality. I got the grey tinted and camo'd, hinged. Bought 6 3'x1' and 2 2'x1' . Think I'm really gonna like them.

    Shipping wasn't bad. Weighed 27 lbs. Somewhere around $1 lb. No taxes.
