You know money comes hard, and hunting leases keep going up, and when was the last time you went to bass pro and didn't spend a hundred or more. Stand prices are crazy high, mostly because of libility of stand manufacturers. Here is a option. If you need a box stand and don't want to pay for manufactured stands, and timeless hours building one. Here is a great tip. Go to your local nurseryman or landscape contractor.(I know because I'm one) and ask them if they have used 200g tree buckets they want to unload. Umm so whats with that? Well take 2 buckets, invert one over the other spaced by 2x4 studs, add a gun rail, and fabric stapled from the gun rail to the bottom bucket, and paint it to your delight. And you have the best 1 man stand that won't rot, or rust, is light weight and can be moved easyly. It will keep you dry. Call me, Don at 985-231-8690 and I will tell you more.
