Mystery solved, I knowRemingtonGuy1991. He is one of my friends and we have hunted the same property for years. I didn't know he was a member. That's pretty funny.

I suggest 20' or higher, because your scent will be in the second air current at 20' plus. At 12' your scent goes to the ground.

Ours is 16 feet high I believe and I think that was a good height. We had numerous occasions where deer would walk right by with us in it. I also suggest getting it built way before next season starts.

We also have a gas heater however I wonder if the deer can smell it sometimes. I only use it in extreme cold weather or if I am sitting all day.

Rabid,

Hello from Central NY! What would you say your total cost was for the blind. I am thinking of doing one like that this spring so I can hunt with the kids easier.

First need to clear some land for a food plot.....

Go to the national wild turkey web site and go to get in the game. There is a set of plans in there for a nice box blind. I printed them off the other day to build on one of my food plot

I went there and didn't see any plans. How about posting the link? Thanks

Saw this one on outdoor channel last week:

I use elevators and find that a 5' x 5' platform works best for me.

Hey nice to meet another fellow NY'er. Where abouts in NY? I am in Auburn, NY. I would say the total cost for the stand was about a thousand dollars, however could probably be cheaper. I think the stand would be a good setup for kids. Good luck with it this spring. I want to do some food plots this spring also.
