I have a few bow stands, tripods I’ve built through the years. What about yours?

Found an Elm tree with 3 forks. It’s 20 feet up, feeder is downhill some, so I’m 25 feet above feeder. My favorite place to hunt, have killed several Aoudads out of it. It’s hard to get a shot off at one of the bastards

Home built, cut 3 feet off legs, feeder is down hill a ways. I have another tripod here at home, built 5 in the 80’s, built out of scrap, added rails later, friend fell off one, luckily was not hurt. They were all like the one in pic below.

Hanco, In your shanty type blinds, do you ever come across any snakes in them? Just figuring with the warmer climate down there that they would hide in one

I hunted with GoDogs down in his Georgia locale. He’d built several blinds on different properties he hunts.

The semi-elevated blind I was hunting out of was placed near a thicket of trees and brush. A limb from a good sized tree was touching the blind - made for an easy entry for a big snake.

GD, told me to check for snakes before I entered the blind each morning. Umm, ok. It’s dark in the morning and I’m having to climb up a ladder, then perform a sideways slither thru the door just to get inside the blind with my pack and rifle on…I wasn’t in a very good defensive position to engage a leg less reptile.

There was always a quick prayer made at the bottom of the blinds ladder before I went up, that nobody would be home.

GD, had shown me a few pictures of the snakes he and his son had killed. They all looked like they should be in circus, wrapped around some snake whisperers neck.

I hate snakes!
