looks great but HUGE, looks like you're going to need a Semi and flatbed trailer to haul it to where it will be setup.

Just gotta ask the question --

What the heck is the propane tank for? You planning on building a small house up there and the propane is for the heater?

BTW - Howdy neighbor! I'm just down the road from you in Lampasas County.

I was going to comment then got all confused what hunting is all about. Comfort is in the eye of the builder, I guess. Lot of work though went into that stand. My buddy in the UP of Michigan has a lazyboy in his blind box so I can't say too much. I hope you don't post that you've installed a windshield wiper on the sliding windows just kidding!

It's not for me. I still hunt in a cold box with no windows. And ya a lot of work went into the stairs mainly.

There have been times if I would have had a heater in the treestand I probably would have hunted longer. (just saying)

Stand looks good. Hope they are putting it in a permanent location.

The tower is not to heavy empty, but the stairs got to be a bit much for me after I put on expanded metal and handrails.
