That's probably a good use for an older portable camper. I would guess that the extra height & comfort would almost guarantee getting the buck. Do you need seasick pills or a warning light for low flying planes? Also, where was the elevator shaft? (ha)
It certainly beats sitting on the 18" x 18" wooden board I sat on 14' high for 7 hours each day during the past two days of the weekend as I looked for bambi with my 03A3 30.06 ready for action.
I needed to tie myself on that stand because my eyelids actually drooped a couple of times and I woke up snapping my neck. I heard on the news last night that some guy actually got seriously hurt from falling off a 20" tall stand.
P.S. Bambi avoided my neck of the woods but my hunting buddy got a 7 point buck. Seven points were on one side and the other side had been broken off...I suppose by fighting with another buck. Stangely enough there was a 1 1/2" horn growing exactly in the forehead similar to pictures of a unicorn. That was the first time I'd ever seen a horn in the middle of the skull.
Thanks guys, the photo was sent to me as part of a ******* set.
I just wonder how are they going to service the grey water tank?!!?????!!!!
Maybe wait on a strong wind and flush?
I've actually got a stand on a 100' stripmine highwall with a 100' wide "bench" under it. We end up killing more 'yotes than deer from it, the dummies just keep coming to the dying rabbit squealer.
Oxford, you need to do like my ex-landlord's cousin - he's got an 800 acre spread in Georgia to hunt on. One end of the valley, the "deer stand" is an old vinyl-covered van rear seat tucked into the trees, giving a comfortable view of the southern half of the valley.
Hard to keep from snoozing, it's so comfy!
You're right Big Dog. Now that old soft vinyl covered cushion seat would be nice except I know how cold that vinyl can get sometimes at 10 degrees F.
Recover that with a cotton rug, install some seat belts, hook up a radio headset, fill up your cooler with hot coffee(no beer allowed hunting..ha), have a pair of old deer antlers to call in the deer, a bag of something to snack on, and a few more things and I'd just forget about hunting.(ha)
Then I'd really fall asleep on the job. Definitely I'd have to go to walmart for my jerky that year.
Thanks for the comments, Big Dog.
P.S. I didn't get a deer this year but my wife got one...on the front end of our new car two days before I went hunting. Fortunately it was a glancing blow and only put a couple of nasty dents on the hood but left blood over the hood. Guess I was using the wrong tool for hunting. She'd slowed down to about 40mph on an exit ramp when she realized the deer was on her hood bouncing off.
Put her up there, take down the ladders, saw down the poles eventually. Oops! Can't do that.
Furthermore, my wife might even try keeping me confined up there with her mother, too. Then I'd go nuts for sure. :nod:
