Deer Stand Base Build

Well, since we lost our hunting lease right before the season this year we started to make these bases for deer blinds...

- Solid steel construction
- 6 foot tall
- 5.5' x 6'.0 wide (top)
- vertical poles are 2 3/8" drill pipe
- top is 3"x3" angle iron

Very solid and made to last.

(BTW - little fire in the background is a bon-fire the neighbors had, they were all fire fighters)

Heading off the teamtalk outrage over danger before it happens, I like it.

very nice base set up! What type of box were you planning on building up top? just a wood framed box?

What are you going to do with it/them since you don't have a lease?

I'd love to build one like that and put a wood floor on top for a bow blind

Yep, brother and I sold this one. Fella had a box blind that he was hunting from the ground in, got us the measurements, his box blind will just lay right on top of it. Put a few lag bolts in and you are set...

This was our last set up. Brother and I built the box blinds and the bases, those boxes lasted us about 10 years in the elements (only had to repaint once)....

Muskles!!!

We actually had the box blinds in the back of the trucks, would drop off the base then come around with the truck. Back right up and get er’ up there. That’s the way my brother and I did it anyways....
