  • I am taking a ground blind out into the woods this weekend. I am unable to drive a large tractor or truck back to where the blin

    I am taking a ground blind out into the woods this weekend. I am unable to drive a large tractor or truck back to where the blind will be located. I will be able to drive my lawn tractor back there with a small trailer. At first thought I was just going take everything apart and reassemble it on top of the stilts. But after much thought I decided it may be easier to tip it onto a little trailer and pull it out with my little tractor. Does anyone have any thoughts on how to tip the blind up with the stilts connected to it. It is going to be about 8ft high and I dont have to worry about hitting holes. It is a 6x6 so it is quite heavy HELP...

    I use the winch on my 4wheeler and a pulley about 14 ft high on the tree and winch it up close. Since you don't have a winch, just tie the rope to ghe back of the tracker and drive. Another option would be to use a block and tackle.

      If it will be by a tree, put some eye bolts near the top and stake the two legs to the ground that will be farthest from the tree. Throw a line over a branch of the tree and tie to the two eye bolts. Then pull the rope with the tractor to pull it upright next to the tree. You can put a pulley up in the tree if you can climb it or take a ladder with you - that will make it pull easier.

            How's your local herd doing? Around here I seldom see many fawns in May, but everything seems to be a couple-three weeks ahead of schedule and we'll...

            That heat Saturday was unpleasant, for sure. I can't complain much, though. While you were busting your rear, and Pighunter was no doubt recuperating...

            Finally got caught up at work. Three months and it’s full bore again. They’d better find some decent help or I’m retiring early.
