I have the same issue I have the body of a god I just can't help it it's budda. We'll I hate the platform stands because you feel like your going to fall out and when you have almost 100 lbs on the weight capacity you start wondering if gravity is finally going to get the best of you. I got for my birthday a 2 person Big Game Sidekick. It's one continous bench really just bare but it does the work. I wouldn't get a single person because You can move aorund in the stand decently and also the spare room next to me I put my gun leaning on the shooting rest. Kicker is when we bought my dad his for christmas we got them on clearance for 75 bucks laugh.gif Hard to beat a 16' stand for 2 people for that much. Wish we would have gotten a few more but hopefully this year.

The Goliath from summit is rated for 350 lbs and I suspect it could take more. I have a Goliath and a Viper and they are both very SOLID.

I have a Viper from Summit and am happy with it. I am not over 300, but still a big dude, and not a big fan of heights. I feel safe in that stand, and suspect the goliath would be even better since it is supposed to be rated for 350.

ACtually the base that you stand on is the same on the Viper and the Goliath, The only difference is that the top section of the goliath is a touch wider. I suspect the Viper would be good for the same weight rating on the platform...

Well thanks I was hoping to find something with a bit more room to work with but it sounds like this summit will be the stand i will have.

I'm a big guy, 6'3" 250(on a good day smile.gif)I own the Summit Viper, it's nice during warmer weather, but when i'm bundled up in the cold, NO GOOD! it's a pretty tight squeeze. MMoose, you should try one out before you buy it, and picture yourself on that cold-a$$ November morning.

Thats why I would go up to the Goliath. I hunt out of it even in december when I am wearing 4 layers + my iceking boots, and still have adequate room. (and I am roughly the same size you mentioned)

Well I am 6'5 and a bit over 3 bills and being bundled up makes it a tight fit which is not good.

      I hope this analysis is wrong, but was doing some math trying to guesstimate when Lake V might go ice free.   As of today, the DNR shows only one lake in the state to be ice free: Pepin.  Pepin went out 20 days later than the median date and 4 days later than the nearest comparable cold year of 2013.   If we extrapolate this same delay to Lake V, then we are looking at an ice out in the neighborhood of May 20th or 21st.  Not quite the record, but close - and plenty late enough to screw up a lot of plans.  Like I said, I hope this analysis is flawed somehow.

      Hey Guys,   Just wondering if any lakes are open or close to being open?  Got the itch to get the boat out and wet a line!

      St Louis county has something similar on their web sight (sic) https://gis.stlouiscountymn.gov/LandExplorer/

      Good idea on the silicone spray definelty something to do every spring a big help to keep things sliding nicely. I use that stuff on anything that slides. On telescoping flip over poles for example.

      Pulled it up front and went to work on it. Silicone lubed everywhere.  Quite a task taking the steel cover off underneath that protects the main drive but got er done. Zips right up and down with the attachment I got for the drill. Nice!

      I found a very handy app for this. It's called onX Hunt Maps.  (I'm just a user) It's primarily designed for hunters that want to know where state/federal vs private lands are.  To see property lines etc. you need the paid (premium) version. The free version comes with a trial of the premium version for 7 days. But even the free version does quite a bit. It's pretty interesting for Vermilion because there is so much of each - private and state/federal lands. You can click on each parcel and it will even give the acreage, landowner names and tax address.  If I pull up to shore, I really want to know that I'm not trespassing. GPS works along with markers/waypoints. Maps can be stored for offline use so you  can use it without phone service or wifi. The free version comes with a trial of the premium version for 7 days. I added a zoomed out screen grab.
