Garhered up what should be the last of my supplies needed for the deer shanty. To this point I've only bought 4, 4x4x10s and 4, 2x6x8 and 10, 2x4x14. The 2x4 were cull lumber that they had marked down 75% off due to being warped. The rest of the materials I have gathered from various places for free.

So bottom line the stairs going into the shanty cost about 350$. I could have just made a ladder and saved a bunch of $$ but I don't want dad or the wife climbing a ladder to get into the shanty off a ladder. Not to mention as I get older I don't want to either.

Only other thing I will need to buy is some plexi glas and maybe piano hinge.

Any ideas on on windows?

Use plexiglass sliding windows in a track so the hinges don’t squeak and you don’t have a window swinging into shooting space or out into a deers view

Great looking project!

The ladder stand next to it would be all I'd need


Safe queens should be taken out and shot!

The ladder stand has produced several deer since we bought the land in '18. So the spot is proven. The deer use the edge of the laurel as a travel route. Big oak flat out in front of laurel.

In gun season '18 wife had a real good deer cross in a hurry. She never got it in the scope and could see antlers easy. We glass alot so she knows what a good buck is. Just couldn't get a shot. Just setting up something a but more "comfortable"

The stand is going to be moved to the East and watching into a new cut. Should be a dynamite set also.

I make mine like this. The windows fold up on the inside. I silicone glass in the 6”x16” holes in the window.

I use push pins and green felt so deer can’t see in, keeps wind out,keeps scent in too. I keep the push pins and felt in my backpack, use at different stands. I have a little heater in each stand also, don’t like being cold.

I build towers out of 1 1/2 and 1” pipe. I have a couple I built in the early 80’s. Wood rots, can’t move very well. Built these last summer. Just got it stood up, tied down. It was a hundred degrees that day in July. That was the day I realized I wasn’t young anymore. The eye of Hurricane Laura passed right over it, didn’t blow it down like a bunch of other guys did.

‘This stand is 225 yards away, been there15 years. It’s on a 18’ tower. Evil deer feeder, feeder pen with a pig trap gate. We have cows, gotta have a feeder pen, built feeder in 81 or 82, it will hold 1200 lbs of corn or protein if I take spinner off, put protein feeder on it.

get this...

https://www.lowes.com/pd/Deckorator...03-ft-White-Plastic-Lattice-Cap/50280315

use it to hold your plexiglass, one on top and one on bottom, then you can slide it sideways as needed, it's plastic so it's quiet! and will last.

I did that to my chicken coop to get them better air in the summer but close it up in the winter.

works great!


Whatever you are willing to put up with, is exactly what you will have.

When your ship comes in. ... make sure you are willing to unload it.

PAYPAL, sucks and I will never use them again. I recommend you do the same.

Thanks, looks like a great suggestion.

Shooting shack has been on hold for a week or so. Too much other stuff going on. Going back today to get the stairs built.

Do y’all have red wasps that like to build nests the size of footballs in your stands up there in PA? Every Labor Day we have to hit all the stands with a bug bomb or they’ll eat you up.


Consider all that you know they are doing. Now just imagine what they are doing that you don't know.

We have those MF’s down here too. They light your ass if you get too close to their nest.
