The only way I'd ever feel I had too many stands is if I couldn't hunt in each one at least one time during a season. That will never be a problem for me.


The issue here would not be an overabundance of stands, it would be a shortage of hunting days!

LOL! You got it! And from what msbadgie says about the number of stands she has on her place, that's what she probably does!

ahhh I see...I'm at the comedy club huh?[8D][;)]
At least mine are a 100 or so feet apart[:D]
I just like building stuff..planting stuff...planning...I'm not even sure it's about the actual hunt any more..to be truthful...It's the preparing to hunt...see deer...cause big buck or nice doe...a kill always needs gutting and processing...and the older I get...well the less I look forward to doing that....besides it's a chess game to me....I need to have enough pieces on the board to out maneuver my opponent[;)]

you should make this a POST "Im not even sure it's about the actual hunt anymore" It would make for some good replies...

I think what you mean is it's the HUNTING you enjoy....and the preparation is as big a part of the hunt as a kill, and maybe more so.....and not so much the kill. I know, because I'm getting closer to that point myself. The difference between us is that I gave up on all the stands and stuff a few years ago, as I get more out of just sitting on the ground and having them walk by me like I'm not there. Where I used to be really into the stands and equipment, I now revel in simple and minimalist.
