Anyone have any pics of their treestand or blind set ups? I would love to see what types of trees others are hunting from or how other brush in their blinds. Share views from your sets too if you would like. Here are a couple of my sets and views.
My pursuit of a buck of a lifetime is much like the Chicago Cubs pursuit of a World Series...the season ends with a "wait til next year"
I think treestand pics are great. I always take pictures of mine, and have a huge album full of differnt set ups.
I hunt out of a blind for January only. Here is a view from inside, and the blind it self. It blends in nice with the snow. The wind is almost always going in the rite direction, and they never seem to see me.
Nice blinds and stands...Easeport ...how tall are those blinds of yours?
I haven't any recent pics....so pardon the rerun...I'll have new ones this spring[;)] The red one is the chicken coop/blind....couple hundred yards from the house in the woods...for some reason they seem attracted to the rooster crowing...go figure[:)]
I have 7 permanent stands at my Marshall County hunting land. All were wood platforms built by the previous lease holders. One of them came down 2 years ago and I replaced it with a 2 man ladder. Last May, a high wind storm dropped a tree right on the platform of another one. We do annual maintenance on the stands, but we'll probably just erect another 2 man ladder to replace the wind damaged one. It is the stand in the first picture with a white pail for a seat. The last picture shows what it looks like now. I've killed 4 bucks from these stands in the last four years. I know I should replace them, but they just work too good. I always wear a harness while climbing and I leave the 40 foot safety ropes out on the stands all during hunting season so that I'm covered from the time that I leave the ground.
My Alabama lease has 14 box blinds, three ladder stands ,and a "Sportsman's Condo". They've been built by various members over the course of several years. The ladder stands were homemade steel weldments covered with rubberized cargo netting. We attached roofs over several of them.
