Jim Orth needed a simple blind for hunting Lake St. Clair. A staffing recruiter and outfitter from Michigan (detroitducks.com), he runs clients on the 430-square mile lake mostly during weekends. When the weather turns, it can pose some extraordinarily harsh conditions, but Orth hunts a shoreline that blocks the wind and public boating access is close by, so it's not as risky as making long runs on open water.
His boat blind frame is made of 2" PVC pipe, making it lightweight, inexpensive, rustproof and easy to build with simple tools.
