Bench for Otter Resort

Recommended Posts

I have the largest portable by Otter and am to cheap (or outraged) by the price of the 2 person bench. Anyone have nice alternatives?

I have some nice photos and a cad drawing of a nice bench I built a little while back. Very Comfy smile.gif

If you post your e-mail I'll send them... or if some one would like to post them here, maybe that would be even better.

I've never taken the time to set up an account for posting photos.

Butt Bridges by T-Bone.

I think the plans were on here last winter. They work very well, are strong, and are easy to build.

I sent these imagines to Paul this morning. I hadn't looked at them in some time and they seem more grainy than I remember. I'm thinking I should rescan them, but I think you'll get the idea.
btw - in the drawing of the frame... I removed the cross bar in the front when it came time to build because it was so sturdy without it that it would have been overkill.
Hope you all like the idea. I'm sure there are lots of little tweets that can improve the design.

I built the base according to T-Bone's Butt Bridge plans. Instead of building the seat, I bolted a boat seat with a fold down back rest to the base. Very comfortable.

    • Figured I'd loop back on this with an update.  I ended up getting the Weber Spirit 3 burner.  Picked it up at Ace Hardware.  Its the same price everywhere ($449) but Ace will assemble it, deliver it, and haul away the old one for no charge.  Bought it Saturday morning had it sitting on the back patio by 3pm that same afternoon.   I ended up looking at a lot of grills including many brands of gas grills, pellet grills, and some charcoal grills.  There were some other gas grills that I liked, they looked to be made solidly from good materials and they came at a decent price.  However, they all lacked a decent warranty.  The webers use less stainless steel than some of the others and I'm not 100% sure what the china production will do to the quality and longevity of a Weber but they do come with the best warranty that I saw.  I believe grates and flavorizer bars have a 5 year warranty and everything else has a 10 year warranty.  Customer service and part availability was also a big selling point.  Weber parts look to be easily available and if you do end up having to replace the grate, flavorizer bars, and burners it will only set you back $150 which should get you many more years out of the grill.    I let my almost 3 year old son pick the color since he came with to help pick it out.  I couldn't argue with his choice of red.  It is clearly the fastest looking grill, now I just need to add a racing stripe. 
    • Saturday morning I was able to put my tag on a nice bird. If I did no get to put some scouting time in I would of moved too fast. I knew these bird was going to show up but he never made a peep on roost or the ground. I was able to call in the hens with him following. The hens yelped twice on the ground and that was it. Had other birds gobbling but I knew this guy was around. It was him with 3 Jakes and 3 hens that pretty much stayed by themselves and nothing to do with the larger group of birds. I was able to see him the Saturday before opener and trail cameras showing he was coming through around 720 each morning. I shot him at 7:15 plan worked out great. 20 Gauge is becoming my favorite gun for turkeys. He was just a couple oz’s shy of 24lbs. double beard 11inch, spurs 1inch. Some big birds dropping. My dads was 25lbs and Protourbait above 24. Might head back to NE this weekend see how the week goes. I have WI left for a couple tags.
    • I personally don't use hens often.  When I do she's in a breeding position near a strutting tom.  I usually go jakes of various postures or no decoys.  I like to keep them guessing where that hen is at.  I've had too many mature Tom's hang up, strut and gobble until the real hens show up to escort him away when using just hens.
    • What would be the reasoning behind just using hen\ hens decoys? To put the toms at ease? I usually use the standard hen / jake combo.
