Re: Heck of a way to build a tree stand!

Must be on gamelands. I see rope holding the "stand" up, and no damage to the tree.
Looks to be pretty old too, but I wouldn't have gotten in that even if when it was new!

Shoot straight

People are sick of politicians, and me, I hate cats in the house.

Yeah, it's on State Game Lands. I just can't imagine dragging and lifting those rocks into place. That took a lot of work!

Doesn't cost a dime, easier than dragging a stand a mile up the mountain.

Anybody can shoot deer on the farm ground....You earn it in the mountains.......

Re: Heck of a way to build a tree stand!

I've come across a few stands like that tied up with rope on gamelands over the years. A friend of my Dad's once found one that was held up with a grape vine. Except that one, whoever built it cut up the thick part of the vine to use as steps. Killed a 100+ year old grapevine for that stand. Dad's buddy was so mad he tore it down and left a note, probably not a very polite one either

Re: Heck of a way to build a tree stand!

It's not a tree stand. If you take a look at the trees you can tell that they were planted on purpose and the stones were placed there when the trees were saplings. Over the years they have been forced to grow so that they are leaning away from the center. Although I can't tell from the pics, I would bet that the trees, in some places, have actually grown over some of the stones. Another thing guys, them stones were not heavy for the 450 pound Big Foot that put them there. There's a Squach in them woods so don't mess with his outhouse.

Good night Chesty, wherever you are......

It was from Happy Days because Richie said his mother did not like them to use the word [censored].
