Default getting close

i was watching getting close tonight

Lee and tiffany were home in Iowa on there farm.

Well it was early before the season and they went to hang some stands.

Lee went into the garage and got some stand and had a stack at least 7 feet high.
it looked like 200 stand all new in the box.

I wonder what they all cost lol

But i was surprised they went out and cut branches hang the stands just the two of them. It shows alot about there love for hunting that that they went and hang 200 stand when they could have had someone do it.


They also found a buck lee passed on that was latershotout of season off there land with a rifle

I tell you what, Lee is bigger than I expected him to be. He is just flat out tall. Some guys that I know that went to the ATA show had a picture made with him and tiffany.

I watched that show too and was in awe of the stack of stands in thier shed. They definately do put a lot of work into it. I know if I am going to be hunting out of a stand I want to be the one who puts it up. That way I know it SHOULD be safe when I get there.

That was a HUGE stack of new stands. I think I heard him say that they hang around 200 stands a year. Sheesh, that sounds like a full time job in itself. Wish I was lucky enough to have the money to afford the property to need 200 stands, or the money to afford 200 of them. If you figure $100/e thats $20k just in stands.

That wouldnt suprise me, I am sure they have some kinda sponsorship worked out. And if you figure, for every 1 spot they hang a stand, they hang 2. That isnt quite as bad.

I'm sure that stack of stands paid for itself and thensome in sponsorships. The fact that people are talking about it on a web forum pretty much guarantees that the stack was shown so impressively for just that reason.
