This morning was my last hunt from the homemade stand I put together in early archery season. It is just as solid as when I built it, but its going to come down soon because I don't want to be tempted to hunt out of it next deer season. I didn't see any deer this morning but I could see in my head the ones I killed from the stand and where the deer were standing when I shot them. Killed my first deer with a bow from this stand. Going to miss hunting out of it but it would be too much risk after sitting out all summer. Probably will get a hang on stand for next season.
