Default Deer Slide

Well with the world the way it is at the current moment. I figured some smiles could be used. So I started with the kids. About a week ago I rolled up to Lowe's with a list. And honey by the way they are having a sale on lumber. We need a new bow blind as i walked out the door. I'll let the pics speak for them selves. Had a blast building it having a blast riding it!! oh and the kiddos sleep real good!!!

I'll keep messing with this and figure out how to get a video or two on here. That does change the perception of this thing.

Way to go dad, smile on your helper’s face proves you have a good idea. As for the HOA, their heads will explode when they see you some early morning sitting at top of slide flinging arrows at that 3d buck in your backyard!

Indeed the kids have been over the moon with the slide. And that little dude is right beside me on any project. Either just helping or trying to show me a better way!!!Win win for sure I guess this will be 1.0 they want it higher. No worries being up there slinging arrows. I like to shoot from the ground.

RWC that was the goal. My kids are 13,10 and 6 hopefully they remember this time later in life as that summer Dad built the bad *** Deer Slide!!! Haven't let any neighbor kids on yet although I see the eyes.

Absolutely no way am I showing this to my 9 YO. He would want to take his bike down it with the fire pit burning high.

Good job Dad that looks amazing.
