    Looking at putting up some elevated 6×8 blinds this fall or next spring. Trying to decide if I want to use elevator brackets, poured concrete footings, or both?

    If I did footings I think I would use the 4' 8" quickrete tubes.

    Zero need for concrete. Dozens of blinds over the years using those elevated brackets.

    I would also consider putting on skids. Makes it nice to be able to move as the season/crops change.

    Some of the blinds like the BANKS have built in elevator brackets - makes it cheap and very quick and easy job to build up a tower or skid system
