In 1989 Doug and Casey Harrison's uncle, Phillip Harrison, drove into the family hunting lease with an unusual " hunting rig" in the back of his truck. Uncle Phillip had mounted an aluminum Genie light bulb changer designed to change light bulbs mounted in high ceilings and mounted it in the back of his truck. He then took a tripod blind and by removing the legs he was able to mount the cage portion of the blind on to the platform of the Genie light bulb changer. The blind had to be elevated by turning a hand crank. He was nearly laughed out of camp until they saw how well it worked and watched Uncle Phillip hunt in a variety of location that season. He told his nephews, Casey, Doug, and Brad Harrison, he thought they could build a better blind than he had. Doug, who was known as being "mechanically gifted" and Casey and Brad, who were known to have a "keen sense" about what they would want in a "dream hunting blind" decided to put their talents together and make a hunting blind that would be more user friendly than Uncle Phillips. They decided that the hunting blind needed to be a hydraulic lift where the hunter could raise and lower the lift while being inside the blind. They also agreed it needed to be mounted in the back of their trucks for mobility, but also be able to remove it after hunting season if needed. By the next hunting season the Harrison brothers had "built a better mouse trap" and everyone in the family that hunted had one made for them. The season was used to test the durability and functions of the lift. Well, it didn't take long before the Harrison's were being stopped by strangers everywhere asking them where they bought their blinds. In 1991 the Harrison brothers started their sideline business, Hy-Lift Hunting Blinds, Inc Hy-Lift sold more blinds it's first year than they had ever dreamed of.
