my old man used 4 treated 4x4's 16 feet tall and about 2 feet from the top he built a floor and support beans going down with 2x4's. put up some cheap 1/8-1/4" chip board for walls on the outside. then we put it in the ground about a foot-2 feet and used some quick create to set it up solid. Nice stand. We put some old carpet we had on the floor and that was the best thing ever so much quieter. My dad's a trucker not a carpenter and there is a reason and it works great. Wish he would have built a roof on it though.

find an old running gear from a gravity box style grain wagon and use that as the base for your stand. that way you have built in road friendly portability. we have four of these. one is even adjustable in height. if i can find some pictures i will post them this week.

Please post those pics. I've been planning on building one for about 6 months, just haven't gotten it done.

We build them in trees & all different types of trees. Find a big tree in a spot that the deer are coming by & then figure out a way to build one. Very few of ours are similar other than a big double trunked white oak is tough to beat. We have several small platforms, 2' by 3-4', in those types of trees, some have seats, some didn't have room for one.

        Yes sir! 8ft-9ft rods seem to work the best IMO.

      4/23/17     Crappies still biting in west Metro area lakes. Water temp in the mid 50's now, and the fish are moving a little shallower. We caught tons of 8 to 11 inch crappies in about ten feet of water, with some weeds on the bottom. Fished a jig tipped with a Powerbait minnow about four feet below a slip-float for great success. Some sunfish starting to show up in the same areas. Water temp probably won't rise much this week with the forecast of cooler temps and quite a bit of rain, but as the water does warm fish should continue to move shallower and get more aggressive. Check out my You Tube channel for some short video clips and a full length show about springtime crappie fishing. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.
