Sometimes, it is just easier and cheaper to make your own ground blind/stand to hunt from–and DIY Sportsman posted this tidbit on how you can make your own stand from a regular six to eight-foot ladder:
Sometimes hunting from the ground can be your best option, particularly if deer are moving during daylight in areas with no trees around to hang a stand. Using a standard step ladder from your local hardware store can be a great option to get an extra few feet of visibility over tall grass, while still preventing you from becoming skylined. I chose to buy a 6′ Fiberglass ladder because it’s lighter and longer lasting that wood, yet it’s quieter and warmer to the touch than aluminum. Of course, I camouflaged the ladder and added a carry strap. Now, it’s a great solution to be able to deer hunt in some great overlooked areas.
Here is his start-to-finish video on how simply you can do this yourself:
