1st new stand site for 2012 is going up today!!!!!

I found this spot in turkey season. There is a small old apple tree that never produces but I saw it had one large scrape by it and two other smaller scrapes around it. About 25 yards away is a decent sized pine tree (great for a cover scent) with a natural hole to shoot out of. It is also right off of the same large bedding area I shot my 12 pointer out of last year. The stand I shot the 12 pointer is on the north edge of the bedding area. This stand will be on the eastern edge of the bedding area. I will take some pics after I am done and let you all see.

I have 5 pictures here. The
	8507	8508	8509	8510	8511I have 5 pictures here. The first one is my buddy making way for the stand up in the tree. The second one is the biggest scrape and the third one is one of the smaller scrapes. The fourth one is a closer view of the stand, and the fifth one I am standing right where the big scrape is. Exactly 25 yards away from the stand. We are also going to put out a couple trophy rocks and a couple small food plots. I have never tried planting food plots before so this should be a pretty good experience.

Yes, definitely a nice looking area that hopefully provides you with a great big buck this year!  My Dad is getting up there in years and finding it difficult to come down a ladder so the wife and I built a set of stairs up to his favorite deer stand - see pic.  Next is a platform stand for him to use in his best field - thinking of using these "elevator" brackets - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PjGVnki-IBM  I would use 16 foot 4X4's for the legs and a 8X8 platform.

I like it, very nice. Hopefully when I can't move very well any more, my kids will do something like that for me.
