Right heigth for deer blind windows

What is the heigth that the windows should be from the floor to the bottom of the window? also how big do you make your windows height, width and length.

I make my windows 44" off the floor.. but it is all preference and how tall you are, how tall your chair is. I make them as wide and big as possible. usually 30" by 18" but sometimes smaller, depends on the box etc.

Kinda depends on your personnal preference and body size. I cut mine at 42" from floor with a height and width of 10"x 20" for a 4x4 box blind. On the 4x6 box, I will cut the 6 ft side windows 10"x30". Home depot will cut the plexiglass for you and they sell pre-cut pieces generally in 12"xwhatever.

You cut them at a height that is right for you or whoever is hunting out of it.

I think trouthunter hit the nail on the head. I am a tall guy and I cut my windows 42 inches high and about a 10 inch vertical opening. Some folks dont like wide windows and some do so thats all up to you. Some folks feel if the window is too big the animals can see you. Its whatever makes you happy.

Who says Garrattryan builds his stands upside down ??

Thanks the blind will be used by several family members that range from me 6'1" and my wife 5'3" that is why I am trying to get a good balance it will be a tower about 12' to the bottom and 15' to eye level.

Anywhere around 40-42" and you should be good. You can skrunch down to make a shot in your chair but it ain't easy to hover over it and shoot if the window is too high.

I made a new blind last year. I'm 5'11" and cut mine at 39" tall and 9"x22" (height and width). It works well for me and my 11 y/o daughter both. I have old computer desk chairs in my stand that adjust up and down which make it possible for anyone hunting out of it to adjust for their preference.

Also, figure out how you want to do your windows before you decide on the height and width. I wish I would've looked around more before deciding on mine. Dickinson Feed has some nice framed, sliding and hinged plexiglass windows for a reasonable price, but I didn't find those til after I cut the holes in my stand (which ended up being too big for their windows). We used them on my dad's stand and are very pleased with them. Don't know if you live anywhere near there...
