Got all the grandkids set up in their own stand. That makes 6 box stands.

I truly appreciate the invite I am about sick of deer stands. I have got to where I was building them in the yard and transporting them on pallet forks.
My granddaughter that loves to hunt so much wanted a blue one. She is in Michigan for the summer so Paw Paw got her set up for season.

Nice. Wish I could get hay done beause I have to get something like that ready for this season. I’ve spent most of my life bow hunting, now that my oldest is able to gun hunt I realize how poorly I’m set up for it.

why do you call it hunting?
I started out an expert then spent the rest of my life learning all the things I didn't know....

Breathing is highly underrated!

What is the difference in sitting here the side of a tree like a buzzard or in a box dry.

No very hot actually way too hot for an old man.
I have got to go back and straightened that out. I was just trying to get them up at the time. I was out of 2x4’s and grabbed some 1X stuff I had laying around.
Had the Mrs. working the tractor and she had enough.

:lol: I saw that too but wasn't going to say anything....you know when you leave an obvious flaw it can hide a lot of minor imperfections. :nod:

:nod: Built a real nice “pole barn/shop combo” for a friend of mine several years ago. It had 45* corner braces on each post going up to the band. I purposely cut one about 12” too long and screwed it in place and left for the day. He spotted it immediately and called me. I acted shocked and told him we’d fix it. He never found another flaw :lol2:

Mine would have looked much worse than that even if I'd done it stone cold sober.

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.
