How to Make a Deer Stand Trailer
These photos were sent to us in an email under the subject line: “How to Make a Deer Stand.” While we would not recommend trying this at home, you have to give the guys credit for creativity.
Step 1: Start with a small to medium size camping trailer.
We would not recommend trying this at home.
Step 2: Pull it out to a likely looking area.
Choose a spot with good deer movement and proven signs of use.
Step 3: Jam some poles in the ground.
Secure your new blind with poles in the ground.
Step 4: Use a couple of tractors with loaders.
Be careful when loading the trailer up into a tree. This is the tricky part.
Step 5: Raise it way up (and fasten it).
Make sure to fasten the trailer securely before stepping foot inside.
Step 6: Drink a beer or two and step back to admire your work.
Load up your new deer stand with all of your essentials to hunt longer.
Step 7: Build a deck (so you’ll have a place to sit outside and watch for deer).
Imagine being able to watch for deer from the comfort of a back porch, off your deer stand.
Step 8: Build some nice stairs so you don’t have to go down a ladder.
Make it easy to get up and down your deer stand with a solid set of stairs.
Step 9: Enjoy your new view and practice shooting deer with a piece of lumber.
Imagine spotting deer from a comfortable chair.
Step 10: Install grill, but be careful no to burn down the deck.
With a grill, you can enjoy venison from the last hunt while looking for the next trophy.
