So, what does any creative southern person do? We build stuff out of scrap! We came up with a pretty good box blind design that I could roll into. It meets and exceeds all of my needs. I love it! So, what is the problem with it? Well, it weighs in excess of about 750 pounds. You wouldn't want to say it's a portable blind but it sits in one place real, real good.
Some folks go to even greater expense and mount a box stand on a trailer. Now this does make it mobile but also adds about $750 to the price tag of the build unless you can find a throw away trailer.

It's a five hub, pop-up blind making it extremely portable. The entire front of the blind unzips and flips up for easy accessibility. It is spacious enough for two men and the windows are the newer style that stretches the full width of the blind in all four directions. You can control which windows are opened or closed and how wide of a shooting gap you need. The mesh is shoot through but I never do that. It's just too easy to move the mesh out of the way and have a clean shot.
You can pick it up for around $70 at Sportsman's Guide (price requires a membership) or on Amazon for $80.
