Default anchoring ground blinds in frozen ground

How do you guys anchor ground blinds in frozen ground, to have them stay in place for wind and overnight, and be able to get the pegs out again?

I use a log and rope the blind to a tree if possible.

I tie it up to trees or find big heavy logs or rocks and tie the blind down on them.

A few 5 or 6 inch long hex headed, coarse threaded lag bolts and a 6 point wrench. The pointed bolts that are self tapping. Screw them into the ground and unscrew them after.They are strong enough to hammer a few time to start them too. If they do freeze in you can just heat up the bolt to release.
