At what age did you start hunting? (November 2004 Poll)
We had 200 head of cattle so meat was never in short supply. Dad figured hunting was a waste of time - if you wanted/needed deer meat just go shoot one there were so many around there was little challenge in getting " a deer". So I had to wait til I was 16 and could legally hunt alone when I started hunting. I plinked lots of nuisance squirrels/rabbits and even a couple mangy coyotes before that though.
How many times have you wished for a better view across a clear cut, an agriculture field or down a powerline?
Ever wanted to get a little higher to try to get above a deer’s nose?
Have you ever wanted a taller stand because… well… just because?
Here is an example of a stand I made a few years ago and it has some very real advantages and a few disadvantages.
commanding view from the stand
able to accommodate two hunters, perfect for parent / child hunts
hunters are well...
