After a fair amount of thought on the design and some cutting/staging in my garage, I got all the wood to the site and over a weekend, got this up a few weeks ago (with help from my two brothers) ... 12 feet to top of the platform and the platform is 6x8. I still plan to pour some concrete around the bases of the four legs, and have some metal wires to atttach the four corners and into into the ground. I plan let the wood dry out for a few months and then will put a bark colored paint/stain on the wood, with some complimentary supporting camo patterns. I will also put up some temp railings ... bought an extentable ladder for this year, to get up and down. Should fit my tent for some camping and my pop-up blind for this fall deer season. If I stay motivated, I have plans to put a 6x5 shooting house on it for next year (will leave a 3 foot porch).

Don't worry about the paint and stain. The deer will get used to it.
