shooting house

My deer season just ended and am making preps for next season. lol. Started construction on a shooting house. Base is 4' x 6'. is up on 4" x 4" x 12' posts. They base is pretty much done. Everything is screwed together for easy disassembly so i can transport it to the lease. gonna start on the walls and roof this week. Have to disassemble the base first. lol. (my eyes were bigger than my backyard. lol ) will update with new pics as i progress.

i am trying something alittle different. have my taller wall on the back with a door. being a taller guy (6'-3") i hate getting into shooting houses and have to get on my knees to get in the door and in the seat. so i am sloping my roof forward and leaving a pretty good overhange in the front.
