Myself and a couple hunting buddies have been very busy the last few weeks building new tower stands on our lease. This is #4 that we just finished yesterday. I am so relieved they are done. Now come on Oct. 1st!!!!

It's nice to have a comfortable place to hunt out of. Those stands are the kind a guy can get into and not come out of until dark. I have seen time and again during rut, bucks sniffin' thru the woods in the middle of the day after everyone has went back to camp.
You are exactly right Rambler the comfort makes it easy to stay all day if you need to. It also so makes it very nice for my buddy and his kids to be able to hunt together. Not to mention a nice dry place if its raining.
And the opportunity for photo and video action is worth noting. Nothing better than a well documented hunt. I would have given anything to have my smartphone 10 years ago when I watched a buck for the better part of an hour with head down, oblivious to the world, sniffing for does.
couple of the guys I hunt with in KY have electricity in their houses. They use electric heaters, and keep it at like 60 degrees. I would say they are a little spoiled. I do enjoy hunting out of the little houses, doesn't seem like the deer can smell you as much with the windows closed.
Put a heavy rubber mat on the floor over the weekend to help with noise. The chair is in place the clover and chicory were fertilized with 0-25-25 and waiting on Oct.1st for opening day of muzz. season.
