That gave me visions of backstraps!  Those are some nice looking stands and a refreshing mind escape to time spent on stand.  Thanks!

Fasteddie.....great pics and nice stand sights....I hope to get a few like that during hunting season with the new camera....but try to stay away from stands until season....Today I went down to mow and check a stand ...the wind sometimes bothers....ran into guy next door and we stood talking for a while....then walked 100ft down trail picking up brush and well....talking to my self..[:o]...climbed into the stand and sat to make sure lanes were still clear and there 20 yrds away stood a big doe...I had to have walked right past her...she had know clue I'd climbed into stand.....glad I didn't spook her...it's the stand I took my 8 out of last year...good luck this year

Here are the three stands that I have worked on over the past two and a half years, number three is still a work in progess.  The first pic. is of my first food plot that I created by hand (Dad said I was nuts), which involved tearing out the sod tilling, fertilizing, liming, and planting.  This picture was toward the end of gun season here in Wisconsin and the plot was on its' downhill slide, but still green.  I did shoot a doe out of this stand during the bow season. 
 
The second pic is of last years project.  This plot is in a crick bottom area and it involved raking and planting etc.  This planting did awesome until the deer decided it tasted good and we didn't get a drop of rain!.  I actually missed a nice 8 pt. out of this stand and could have shot a spike.
 
Picture number three is of my latest aspiration.  This is on another 40 of ours (my families).  So far over the winter I have built the stand and created an opening in the canopy in preparation for a food plot this summer.  I can't wait for spring to continue working on it!!!
These are my stands that I have put countless hours of work into and have had success from.  I used nothing but a walk behind roto-tiller and hand tools to get the plots done and have had pretty good success.

Very nice...This is what I love about deer hunting (well, one of the million things!).  It's a 24/7/365 thing for most of us.  It's not just about hunting the deer...It's actually most about everything else! [:D]
