Default Stolle Deer Camp - Getting Closer to Completion

We have made some progress in the addition plus got the ranger front end re-built.

Ranger 3 wheeler





Doors, Trim and base boards are in





We needed to free up space in the skinning shed and tool/well house so we had a 20’ container delivered.







Got some rockers for the porch.



Got lamps and vanity lights





Zeke relaxed on the porch



We fed the humming birds.



Saw a few axis. Should be good hunting this summer.



This weekend will be playing more than working. We are taking the girls to kayak the South Llano and just have fun at the deer camp.

We are getting close to finishing out our cabin this weekend. We had a porch built on the front so after this weekend, the only cabin project will be to pour a slab or do some sort of material under the porch.

Did you replace the ball joints? If so, how hard were they to get out? My Ranger is on jack stands in the garage until my parts get here. Doing a complete front end rebuild and replacing an axle that I managed to break.

I attempted too. I didn’t have the right tools to pull them out there. Mine are pressed in without grease zerts. I decided to take the housings to the ATV shop here in Houston. They replaced the ball joints and bearings for $99.
