Default New Deer Stand (Trump Tower)

Got all year so I figured I would start working on the new deer stand. I plan on making the box 6'X8' with a 2ft porch off the back. The tower will be around 12ft tall. Any ideas are appreciated!!

The start of the bottom section:
Using 2 3/8 drill stem for the tower and 2 7/8 drill stem for the bottom skids in case i need to move it around.

Sounds like you have a pretty good idea up in your head as to what you want to do. That is going to be a stout S.O.B.

i originally thought about doing that but decided i was going to go 12ft up with it so I don’t believe a trailer will work

Bottom skid and legs are ready to be attached to the top frame. Only thing left is to attach the skid together and start working on the box.

Just a thought but it will be top heavy and dragging on skids might be TIPPY..and standing it up will be a ***** ...Maybe a Tractor with Front end loader..Other than that WOW!!

Ya we will have a tractor for extra support while picking it up off the trailer. Other than that we will have a winch on another pickup helping raise it. Pretty much where we lift it off the trailer is the location where it will be going. The bottom skid is designed to be 12x12 with the legs at a pretty good angle to match up to the 8x8 too so it should be ok as far as support from tipping.However i **** sure plan on taking extra precautions and driving tpost in the ground to make me feel better.
