    Default homemade treestand

    A few years ago someone posted plans for a stand like this pictured below. Just wondering if anyone has them (or some similar)?

    Thanks

    With the cost of wood, buying them at Cabela's is probably cheaper. :P

    Lumber isnt an issue. We've got an ample supply just sitting around doing nothing. I think our guys would prefer these to metal ladder stands as we can make them a bit bigger and easier to access.

    I have made a couple of stands that look just like the ones in the picture only taller.
    Cost about $25.00 with pressure treated then camo painted.

    I came across one of these up on crown land. When not in use the guy hangs it on a cut off branch so that the legs are about 1 foot off the ground. Keeps the bottoms from rotting, I guess. Thought it was a good idea.

    I think you both took my comment a little to seriously.

    Anyways, the design looks pretty good. With pressure treated you are looking at about half the cost I'd guess. My brother bought a tree stand last year on sale for somewhere's around $100-$130. Not a bad option if you can get it to your watch easily. Of course, you could build it right at the tree as well if so inclined.
