Went out to the land last weekend and got my stand built.A five by five fourteen feet high. All enclosed I will have a little heater in there to break the chill.Then I just got to hope they pass threw.

At least you'll be toasty and dry. Sounds a little too comfy...better bring the no-doze and plenty of coffee. did you get the lazy boy up there before you closed it in?!! smile

Looks more like it should be sitting along a prison wall. Kinda looks like it's in Texas...maybe a border patrol tower?? Where is the wet bar? A TV?? GTHOH. Guess the critters don't mind the generators running. Not exactly what I would call hunting. How embarrassing.

That would be more of a novelty thing for me. Not really hunting. Not saying I wouldnt take one for free and hunt out of it once a year tho.

Something tells me most of those chairs are faced towards the poker table when the hunt is on.

how serious of a hunter are they? half of hunting is being out in the elements, be it hot, cold, rainy, snowy. but if ya got the money, oh well. i'd just prefer a ladder stand anyways

That stand is very nice, but I agree, it is not hunting. You may as well sit in the cabin.

Most of us don't really hunt anyways, IMO. If you sit in a stand and just wait, that really isn't a hunt. With the small amount of ground to cover,(like most people have) that is the only thing you can do though.

My stand is roughly 5x5 also. I like having enough room to bring a pack with me and room to move and stand up if I want to. If you don't have private land, you don't have that choice though.

I would like to add sides and a roof to mine in case we actually do get winter one of these years.

That stand is rediculous. i could never hunt out of something like that. At my cabin we have a 12x12 stand, without carpet or a heater or anything, and although its nice as a wind break for awhile. It gets too comfortable and i find myself falling asleep alot more. Not to mention it doesnt feel as much like hunting as finding a tree and planting it right underneath it.

I would kill to have a cabin that nice!!

I agree that really isn't hunting, but if that is what you want to do, so be it. Not me though. I like taking in all the sights, sounds, fresh air etc. If I wanted each and every luxury of home, I would stay there.

I hated it alot more 3 years ago before i shot 5 deer in 3 years out of that stand. But i would still rather walk aimlessly until i find a nice spot to sit for awhile.

    • My wife and I like to float down the Crow from Rockford to the Mississippi. Hardly anyone on the river except Bald Eagles. Found some nice chicken of the woods mushrooms last summer.
    • Trump got the information from Nunes. Nunes heads the House intel committee, but Nunes also was a member of Trump's transition team. Nunes then fed information to Trump (information that apparently nobody else on the intelligence committee has) about incidental observation of Trump and his transition team (a team that includes Nunes himself). 
    • A better question would be are you right?  Even the articles you link to don't really support your "most likely" assertions so you have to resort to everything is a lie as evidence, like Donald's twitter, and anyone that doesn't believe your alternative facts is an Obama luvin' librul. 
    • What projects have you worked on? Big or small lets see um. Anything, guns, boats, cars, Decoys.    I had fun reworking a few old Harley Golf carts. Didn't have any digital before shots to post. The carts I got were in very bad shape. Had to do a lot of fiberglass body work on them and some mechanical work to get them running. Just used boat seats as I didn't want to throw a bunch of cash at reworking the old seats and one cart had no seats at all when I got it. I took all the big chrome front bumper and bag bars off and glassed over the holes. Everyone had cracks in the front nose cones and rear ends. Not perfect but fun. Top picture is one of the nicer ones I started reworking.
    • Do you have any thoughts about what state you're heading to for this?  CO is draw only but there are lots of decent options available with 0 points. MT had leftover tags which is good because you missed the deadline already. WY has options you could draw. ND has passed. NM passed. UT not a good option with no points I think. ID may have some options but not certain. SD and NE may have some good options but I've never hunted either.   That's some basic info on states. Once you pick a state and get a tag it's really not complicated for the most part. Get elevated, glass up a muley, bed him, sneak in him without being smelled it seen, shoot him!   My son and I just found out we drew ND muley tags this year so we're pumped about that!
    • Just random ones I like. 1) Grand Marais fall. 2) HSO member Laker fishing. 3) Door County Wis.
    •   Yep and the Hawks won again!
    • Choosing 3 "best photos" is tough, but here are 3 of my favorites right now.  Cottonwood vs. Lightning Morel cluster  Pup in the snow
    • Missed the game but I guess I am glad I did. 9 games to go, still time to right the ship but at this pace the blues are going to pass us up.
