Default Deer Blinds Near Harrison

Traveling North on 27 there is a place on the east side of the highway that manufactures custom deer blinds. Does anyone have any information on them or know the name of the people who make them. Looking for a custom blind to put on a platform. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks Grizzly.

All of the Amish around us now have phones along with an answering machine in their workshops/barns or just outside the house in a small shelter. They may be in the phone book. Last week I rented an excavator and a bulldozer from the Amish to put in a couple of small ponds. They also rent and use a bobcat on their farm.

Have you considered not putting a permanent bind on your platform and instead putting a safety rail/gun rest around the outside and then use a pop-up blind secured with tie-downs ?

The amish are on the west side of 27. The place on the east side (just north of the harrison exit) is a custom dock place that has tripod and platform blinds displayed sometimes.
