In to town for lunch and supplies. A brief rest to digest was in order before heading back out for more.

This stand is called the Stairway To Heaven. Named as such because to enter it we had to climb straight up the wooden 2x4s on the side; just as you see Cameron doing in the first pic way up top. A real climb of horror for most especially as most of the time we ascend it in the dark. So there you see the new improved Stairway To Heaven. After months of deliberations on building stairs, we realized a ladder bolted to the structure would do the trick. It may not look like much to the average onlooker, but to the deer hunter, it is paradise.

A few more hours of work planned for Sunday and then its on the road home.

Enjoy your Sunday!

    I think there’s some serious calorie burning going on up there. The satisfaction of getting all that done will make it all worth it. Stay cool.
