Treestand work

My brother and his family came to visit and they wanted to help put up a stand.  It took about an hour at most including cutting limbs, clearing debris, etc.

That's an awesome view Ben...looks like an excellent location for a stand. Always nice to get a little help hanging stands. What you got planted peas? Nice job...

Hey Split, those are soybeans.  They look horrible....we have had .5" of rain in the past two months.  Deer are still hammering them, but I am not sure how long they will stay green without rain.

King Ben,
It must be great to have good help!  Y'all got it right!  What direction are you facing from that ladder stand? 
My wife lifted me one time in the loader to cut a limb with a chainsaw, she said, "Never again!" @--0--0117  She did a good job but that was several seasons ago.  Since then she's had a quadruple bypass and I've had a new knee and a new hip installed, now she says we're too old :2).  When I was somewhat younger, I loved to use a climbing tree stand.

I may need to use this as a debate point to buy a tractor.  Yes it is overkill for my 25' x 30' garden but it will be invaluable as a hunting tool and snow mover.      --099-780 --099-780

It looks like a great spot. But using a tractor is cheating.

Nice work.

One suggestion for the next one you do, tie off or have leading edge protection on all four sides. Terminal velocity only needs 6' to do what it does!
