Tower Stand

Just finished my summer project! Building and installing a new tower stand at BCSC.  Thanks Lee, CobbGuy and Splittoe for all the help getting it through the creek, up the hill and on top of the mountain!

Looking good deerhead, Did you leave enough room in there for the recliner? Those deer running the cutovers don't stand a chance now. Hope to see you soon.

Great Looking stand, Wow, nice roof...big enough to deflect any hard rain, blowing sideways...cannot wait to see it in person in about 5 weeks at BCSC (Butts County Sportsman Club)

Thanks for Split Toe and Lee Vester, who put the sweat into it....now for the camo netting and you will be done....

Cannot wait to start on mind box blind. I got the box two years ago at SummerBlast and now with the logging and clear cutting, cannot wait...got a window kit for it and the carpet...will price the 10 or 12 ft long 4x4 tomorrow or Thursday at the latest....

Thank Deerhead for the pictures....

Looks great! I cant see the anchors too well in the photo. Someday you can even put up plexiglass sliding windows for hard rainy days. Good look getting a BIG buck out of it!

Its redneck level  --099-780 and no blocks just Georgia red clay! 

Flintlock - I used steel rods set in 80lbs of concrete for anchors then cabled to the stand. 

There are a few more finishing touches but its ready to be hunted. 

Thank you for all of the kind comments.  Its been a lot of hard work.
