deer stand

8 posts in this topic

Last year my dad and I built new stands. Nothing fancy just new ones. Anyway my buddy who owns the land we hunt on asked if he got the materials if I would build him one I said no problem but I didn't have the right paint for it. He said no problem just paint it any color. So my wife and I got a little creative.I hope you like it, he did!!

I made it last year, He didn't see it till a week be fore opener. Then to late but the first morning three doe's came up and laid down right under the stand. He's a coffee drinker so about this time he's haven a [cow]. But all when't good, He got a 8 point the next day. What was funny was we went out last weekend to check the stands and his wife came with. They where two wheelers behind when I heard her hopping and hollering about the sign she had not seen it yet!!

I just got the trail cam from his stand there was 112 pictures but just small three, four and five point bucks and a lot of doe. I know there is two big bucks there, Ijust can't get them on picture.If I do you will see them.

I emailed your picture to my family that built one like that...the subject was, "if your Mom had helped build the hut."

They got quite a laugh out of it.

This is what deer hunting for some of us is about. Having fun doing the hunt.

Straight shooting. smile

      Not sure when they put in the solar grid as I wasn't there last year but it is massive. Must be selling power off of that as I don't think they need that much power there.


      It took a couple days here to run across the article from the Morrison County Record, but here's a little info on the solar panels.


      Completed in October 2016.


      Can generate 10 megawatts.


      Panel field is 63 acres in size.


      $25 million to build.


      The energy will meet or exceed what camp uses.  The project provides a redundant energy supply to their natural gas in case of emergency.


      Minnesota Power stated the solar field is capable of supplying enough energy for 2000 homes for one year.


      Normally the power will go back into the grid and satisfy 1/3 of the requirement for MP&L to generate "GREEN" energy as mandated by the State in 2013.


      One could probably look the article up on the page but those are the high points.

    • Is this what we call an embarrassing win!!?

    • find em and send that eyeguy a note... ;)

      I do all of my hunting with a 20ga


      After seeing what my one kids 20ga is capable of I'm really considering going back to one.


    • Short hunt today because of the heat but managed 2 on a quick sundown hunt
