I’ve seen a thread on another site about old stands in the woods. So let’s post them up here. I was scouting tensas nwr today and came across this stand. It’s before my time. I’ve only seen a couple like this. ImageImageImage

There is a old amaker in a tree on my property, will try to get a pic of it tomorrow.

I hunted a few when I was a kid. Those are the coldest things I ever hunted in. I guess it was all of the metal. Oh, and talk about a tight fit. Thanks for sharing it. It brings back a lot of memories.

I’ve only seen one that was still hanging. It was the poor mans version I’m told w just a single barrel that you had to stand the whole time. I asked a local and asked what did they use to climb with? He replied cotton spindles driven in the tree for spikes.

I used to hunt out of them years ago. Single barrel, with half the front cut out for entry. They had a 2x10 ran through the sides for a seat and heavy canvas tarp to cover front after you were seated. The tarp helped keep you warm.

Several barrel stands on our place in Grenada. They were old when I started hunting there in 1980 or so.

Here’s one that was hanging on my dads property , as far as I know it was still there when we sold it. A barrel chained to a tree about 12 foot high. No thanks!! Image

looks more like something to make moonshine with . When you bumped your rifle against the side of that stand, i bet every deer in the county heard it..

i've used cotton spindles before, they were cheap and had plenty .. I know the lumber folks hated them
