    Built several stands myself.No store bought stands then.Got me a climbing stand one of those Baker stands.Thought I was in tall cotton then.That old Baker stand was one dangerous piece of equipment.

    Back in my day we didnt have 2x4s and hell we didnt even have nails, we had to cut our own limbs for our stands and make rope from boiled tree bark and our own spit. *spittoon ding*

    And another thing, when i started hunting there were only 2 deer in the county. Neither of them bucks, and daddy told me i had to go hunting for them like the indians did--so he hid my shoes and coat and gave me a coyote fur to wrap up in. And it was 10 BELOW.
    lost 4 toes but it was worth it.
    Only later i was told the deer i shot was uncle neddins goat and him and daddy schemed it up to see how tough i was. Well i showed them!
    *limps away...crying a lil*

    LOL. True story. One of my Dad's hunting friends was a carpenter. He'd go in the woods with a saw, hammer, and a bag of nails. He used what was in the woods. His stands were awesome, blended in perfectly, but never lasted more than a year....

    Where is the damn dislike button?!:mad::mad::mad::mad:

    And I have built 4 or 5 permanent stands, thank you very much. And hauled the lumber 3/4 mile or so. From my mom's house to farm down the road before I ever got license. Yes...it took several trips.

    Nah...typically 1 day. Me and Matt, Jason's brother, would scope out a place, pre-measure some stuff, go home, cut it best we could and then haul it. I used a hand saw more than I care to remember.
