I want to move a blind to a new spot. But the ground is frozen. I can tie the side guide ropes to rock to help.
How can I anchor the bottom corners to the ground (where stakes are normally used)?

put some more rocks inside in the corners
How deep is the frost? If it’s only a few inches deep, you should be able to drive the metal spike type stakes (40d-60d nail) in with little problem.
Use fish(ICE) house stakes.
Why pound through hard ground when a drill can zip those lag screws in, in seconds.

You could use a portable drill with a masonry bit to get through the frozen surface.
Good Grief! I ain't sure where ya'll are from but here if it's that freaking cold I'm at the house. I could not shoot my bow that cold anyway.

I have used sand bags once the ground has frozen ,the tube type that are sold to put in the back of your truck for weight to increase traction. I lay them along the edge of the blind on the flap if it has them. I put a hog ring through the end of the bag and tie it to the corners. I usually don't move my blinds so I have the opposite problem of getting the stakes out after the ground freezes, so I have gone to plastic tent stakes, which I can break off with a side hit with a hammer.
