Used to the loggin outfits would just cut the trunk off the tree and leave a big top on the ground, you could get sevral feet off the ground with a little work have a nice blind.

Now days they use more of the tree and push up a pile of limbs about the size of a 2 car garage (have seen'm bigger), a pile that size would make a killer place to hold up and wait for a deer to walk past but it also would make a ideal place for snakes to hunt and den up.

I get what your say'n but during the late summer and fall it mite not be such a good idea.

if I can just drag out some of the dead logs/branches and small dead tree trunks to stack em up either like a tepee or like a log cabin...and then cover with dead brush around the outside and leave room for shooting and a good beam to rest the gun on for a steady shot.

you won't need a made rest for turkey hunting, that's what your knees are for, and if he don't walk in front you, like they usually don't, then you just slowly move your gun free handedly towards the turkey, usually when he walks behind a tree is the best time to make a last second adjustment

I like to mix it up, half and half, half fresh snipped cedar limps or other greenery, and half dead sticks and dead limbs, most camo has green on it, so its good to try and make it as close to your camo as you can, because turkey recognize something that isn't suppose to be there, because you are in there "living room" basically, that's why I prefer to use blowdowns that have been there for a while because turkeys are accustomed to seeing that blowdown in the same spot

Good advice, if possible. That's what I try to do also.
