Shipping Container Hunting Blind

 In Hunting, Modify, Shelter

Is there anything shipping containers can’t do?


Not really. You can use them to construct any would-be shelter at a fraction of the cost. You can count on a shipping container’s reliability, stability and mobility for just about anything.



Hunting is a time to be away from the hustle and bustle of regular life. Many people look forward to spending some reflective time alone or time bonding with a few friends deep in the heart of nature. They prepare months in advance for these relaxing hunting trips with the understanding that it’s never too early to prep for the fall hunting season.

Shelter is one of the chief concerns when venturing into the wilderness. In addition to an adequate campsite / home base from which to operate, a hunting blind is a must have for a successful hunt. Take a look at a few of these Saf-T-Box hunting blinds that were affordably adapted from shipping containers and converted into camouflaged cover.

Hunting blinds are designed to reduce the chances of detection by any and every animal you will be hunting (deer, duck, etc.). Historically, hunting blinds are either wooden structures or tents made from nylon or another durable, waterproof fabric.

When using shipping containers, though, you get the best of both worlds – the security of a solid structure and the movability and of an impermanent one. Delivery of your shipping container is simple and can be executed with the help of a flatbed truck in just few hours to your desired location. The corrugated steel of the container ensures durability for even the harshest weather conditions.
