Default ISO tractor help...New Ulm (north of Columbus)

I built a rather large blind about 4 years ago.
http://discussions.texasbowhunter.co...ighlight=blind

I now need to move it to another spot on the lease to use as a rifle blind. It's 8' wide and 10'+ long. I'd REALLY rather not disassemble it so I'm looking for someone with some long forks on a tractor that could pick this up and move it a few hundred yards.

Let me know what's available and what kind of a deal we could work out.

Set mine up Sunday morning, but I don't think my buddy's tractor will handle yours without forks.

We moved an 8x8 blind with a 2' porch using a skid steer with pallet forks and fork extensions. We had to have a 4x4 to place under the front of the forks running from one side of the blind to the other. Moving it that far, I would also strap it to the loader.

Ide get some 4x4s and build a skid. Then you can drag it wherever and whenever you please. Most people will have forks, but not extensions. There's just very little need for them on a day to day tractor basis.

My forks are 4 feet.... I strap it to the top part of the forks. I moved my 8x8 blind that way.

I have 6í fork extensions but donít think my 70hp has enough azz to move that blind even with the rear tires filled with water. Thatís going to take a big tractor.

Yeah I'm thinking I'll have to put some skids on it and drag it into place.

We've moved several 5x8 stands with 4ft forks, if that helps at all.
