    Plans completed for new 3 person shooting bench. Its going on a 350 meter range I just completed. I also placed a feeder at 300m.

    The double doors are for when the blind is being used as a shooting bench. Both doors can be opened for air flow, it is hot in Texas!

    I used 2X6s to fill the gap seen below. You can see them in the next picture. The 2x6s made it a tight enough fit that I don't need a latch to keep criters out when not in use.

    I also got the level out and adjusted the stand so the shooting surface is level.

    Here is a view from the feeder looking back at the stand.

    Same spot as before just zoomed in.

    A white fallow caught on the game cam I have set up on the feeder.

    Jason,

    That is fantastic! Great Job! We have around five tower stands in Texas but I know some places where your design would work fantastic on the property. I may build one of them this coming year for next falls hunt! Thanks for sharing this! And like your Buddy who is there helping you!!!! Here is a picture of mine resting after a work day. :D

    That is a very nice blind. Friends of mine have a permanent blind with electricity run to it. They don't kill a lot of deer because they are to busy watching TV or cooking. They have a good time, that is all that matters.
