Lousy die cut Cammo!

I just got back from re-camouflaging my tree stand. This will be the last year I use the diecut cammo, it just does not hold up to the wind when you have strong wind. This is the 2nd time this year I had to re-cammo it. I needed it ready for Saturday. I used to use burlap and it lasted for about 3 years, this plasticized die cut just gets rotten and falls apart after less than a year. I had a roll of burlap that I spray painted cammo and I used it to fix the stand for the rest of this year.I need to find some 1/8th inch boards and shiplap the stand and give it a good cammo paint job. That is in my plans for next year.

When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!

Try military camo net. It will last. The downside it is heavy and has a tendency to catch on everything.

I have some of that stuff I used to use for cammo on a boat when duck hunting. It is a pain for catching on everything.

I will have to check it out, I did check Home depot and I did not see anything that I thought I could use.

I use the corrugated black plastic. Used to build sidewall, use simplex nails.
Used on roof needs good ridge for drainage. Extra small support for snow load.
It will take paint.
Oldest stand has been up at least 10 years.
Current price about $25 for 4x8 sheet.

When I built my son's tree house, I used slab wood for the walls. Most places will let you take it for free or at a very minimal cost

I don't have ducks. I don't have rows. I have squirrels. And they're drunk.

Don't know how high your stand is, but the trend I'm seeing in this part of the state for permanent stand sites is to build a platform 10' off the ground out of treated lumber, and then secure a pop up blind to it about a month before the season opener and then remove it when the season closes. Kind of a poor mans version of a hard shell blind, and much easier to set yourself.

what about buying some cheap fake Christmas trees after Christmas and use the branches on your stand ?
