I have a piece of property that I am allowed to hunt. I've been gathering scraps and bought a few pieces of wood from here and there. I have a platform of roughly 36x36 and will be a little over 12'-0" tall at the platform. I plan on installing it and then possibly adding short sides and maybe a roof. It could be better but for a first attempt I'm liking it.

The way that I built it makes fixes that like that fairly easy. I used decking screws and bolts. I can have the existing flooring off and deck boards down within a half an hour. Same with the ladder.

I would add a couple more screws to the rungs of the ladder. Better to overkill than have an accident. Happy hunting.
