Depends on a few things, Like access to site, and any equipment to build it?

Personally, where we moose hunt, it is quite hard to get anything in. everything is by atv, and on old winter skidder roads. But What I would do, is 4x4's and Deck blocks. Use 2x4 as braces. What size platform do you want? and how high? I'd probably use 2x6 to frame out the platform, and you can either go 5/4 pressure treated decking, or a sheet of plywood. 3" screws or nails to hold everything together, Lag bolt the Platform to the 4x4's.

Once that's done, I would pre-build the walls and roof for the box, could use 2x2 or 2x3 to cut costs. Pull them up, and nail em down.

Here is a link, that has some Pics of what I am talking about. You don't need to use the products they are selling, but could make it easier to set up. Personally I'd just Lag bolt it all down.

We just build a 15 foot tower stand last year. We built it out of angle iron and just put up a bunch of bracing. Then we built a little hut on top with rubber roofing for the walls. Its pretty nice actually, but a little wobbly. We were experimenting and plan to build another in a year or 2, but come up with some different bracing ideas and some posts that are larger in diameter. Ill be up there this weekend and hopefully will remember to snap some pics of it.

Could almost be cheaper to go ahead and buy a kit these days with the cost of lumber and supplies.
