Mostly because I don't like getting that call to go find a gut shot deer the city boys were chasing. Stand hunting is one shot, no waste.

CB mine are steel. 20 foot legs. I lay them up in the dump trailer with the box hanging out the top and use the hydraulics to get them up about 60%. Then they pull right on up easily. You need a back tie in case someone pulls too hard.

I drive T posts deep at the bases so that the wind doesn't topple them. So far I have been lucky.

Carpeted floor and walls holds down noise. Remnants work perfect.

I don't know how long the legs are, but there's one just like that sitting on my place..belonged to my brother. Anchored down with teeposts too. I think it has a wood floor tho.

My granddaddy took me out deer hunting. It was a coming of age thing. He handed me a board and pointed to a "good tree"

It must be really nice to have box stands like that when you are just getting started. CB you are spoiling them.

Got that right.
