Hunting Blind/Tree Stand

I'm looking at ideas on how to make a 2 man hunting box blind/treestand. I want it large enough to have 2 hunters comfortablely but not break the bank with alot of extra bells and whistles. Pics would be a great help

You can't bag a big one if your not out tryin

Re: Hunting Blind/Tree Stand

By the time you get enough materials and hardware into it to make sure it's safe for two people, I think you could probably just snag one at Cabela's or someplace like that at a comparable cost. And you know with the TMA label on it, it's been engineered and tested to it's capacity weight and beyond.

A closed mind keeps the truth out

Re: Hunting Blind/Tree Stand

Ready for door and windows, just bought 3 double pain windows today discounted at lumber yard for 125.00, they was ordered in wrong. Guess material price, than guess again. Stand is around 9' high base is 8x8 wide with a 5x5 box. 2 walkways on sides little under 3'. I have trated 6x6x12 in ground with sacrete around them dont go under 6x6 only kidding yourself. Floor joices are on 1' center covered with 3/4" treated plywood this helps keep the creep down. I have sturdy handrails and a bottom rail to prevent slipping and falling out. Steps are a must but you will spend 100.00 in material just for them, price the cost of a ladder once. This is my 3rd. stand getting a little better. I decided on sliding windows plex a glass on slides dont care for. Yes it will be heated in a very cold and windy place. Had some extra plywood left from a job so decided to close 3 sides of bottom and hide 4 wheeler.

Re: Hunting Blind/Tree Stand

we always have carpet on the floor in ours, it really cuts down on the noise.

Re: Hunting Blind/Tree Stand

I will too, my wife can get me all the reminents i need this stand which will be totaly enclosed will be good with carpet since it wont get wet. I feel thru experience putting the floor joices on 1' centers and using 2x6's help very much. Then when i install plywood floor i use plenty of licquid nail then finish with screws. When it get cold its so easy to get a creep and it will echo thru the woods. If you plan well some of these things can be over come. Thru my experience dont go cheap it will only cost little more to go first class and you can get hurt. The little things get costly i mainly use screws and lags when needed and gets expensive.
