Default Old deer stand I found this morning

No way in hell I would have ever sat in this thing. The tree had old spikes in the back to climb up and the platform was supported by old trees that had been cut to length. Stand was probably about 15' tall I would guess.

I've been known to build a few that you'd probably never attempt to get to. Back in the day, that is.

Same here. Some looked worse than that.

My friends daughter says there is not more violence today compared to past. It's just news media and Internet. Would you agree with this also.

Used to see a lot of those years ago, now folks rarely build stands.

We had one in Washington county that was a burlap mail bag nailed up on a limb, I never had the balls to even climb up to it, much less hunt out of it
