Well it is just about here, I have taken one very large doe during bow season and now it it time for the bucks. I am watching one that has 6 brow tines (three on each side). Hoping to post pictures of him in the back of the truck
. I Usually take 4 doe a year then my 2 bucks as my dads property is over run with big doe. We have been taking about 8 to 10 doe a year off there and there are still a couple groups of 25 to 30. Our hunting is to regulate them not reduce the herd size.
Post some of your deer blind pics. Here is one of mine, 16' to the platform, 8' X 8' Fully insulated and finished with ceiling, carpet and lights. There is a a pair of industrial 110ah batteries that run an inverter and charges via solar. it is heated with a small propane heater. I need to replace the windows as they do not swing or slide open they just come out with 4 latches and it is not very practical. Steps run up inside to one corner and enter thru the bottom hatch. it has a peaked shingled roof and is 8' tall on the inside. It is great for our children as they can enjoy the hunt without freezing on the cold mornings. We have installed steel barn siding on the base to enclose the 6x6 supports and there is a door just large enough to allow me to park my Kawasaki brute force inside and out of sight.
We built it all in the barn including the roof
The platform is on 6x6 beams and the floor is treated 2x10's with 2 layers of 1/2 plywood.
the blue tarp was just to protect it from the weather while constructing it.
it stands on a corner of about 20 acres of woods and looks over the fields (corn or beans) and my dads air strip.
