That looks like a deadly spot.

Welcome to TnDeer and I hope you have a Bloody Fall. \:D

I look forward to many pictures.

It has 12 ft posts and another 6 ft tall. The anchor system has worked so far. We had some large trees blow down a month ago and it is still standing. I think it will be ok.

How many anchors did you use and are they on the corners at an angle or straight down?

I used 2 screw anchors. 1 in front and 1 in back. I made a y with my cable to attach to the two posts. Straight out and middle with anchors, maybe 2-3 ft out from stand

Thanks. That's sorta the plan I was thinking of trying. I also thought about digging down several inches where each leg will set and fill with gravel so it has a solid base to keep pressure on.

We have four shooting houses out on our lease and they are 20ft. off the ground, We used T-post to anchor. We drove 6ft. T-post in beside the front right leg and by the back left leg, leaving about 2ft.-3ft. out of the ground then we used some 1 1/4" steel band to band the post to the legs.
