How to Make a Deer Stand
Wanting anew deer stand so you can go hunting in season? This article walks you through the steps of making one yourself instead of purchasing one
Nails or screws
Grab the tape measure and pencil, measure the tree and the wood you want to build the deer stand in. Measure "up" the tree, as this will provide you with the approximate height of the deer stand. Transfer this measurement onto the wood you are using to build your deer stand, and cut the wood with a saw.
Place your boards on a sturdy work surface, such as the floor in your garage or a workbench, as this provides stability when cutting them. Place the boards next to each other (dry run, do not secure them) where they will go when attaching them to build the deer stand.
Secure the boards in their designated place for building the deer stand with screws, nails and your hammer. If you want to use a drill instead of a hammer, that is perfectly acceptable. Once you have attached all the boards together, stand the deer stand upwards, and check for flushness (evenness.) If you notice a board or two are not flush with the other boards, correct them now. Place a square at the corners of the boards, and a carpenter's level on the length of the boards; these items will give you the flush location for each board. Attach the boards accordingly.
Consider where you want to be able to "view" the deer while sitting in the deer stand. This area gives you the place to put your window. A window in a deer stand can be simply a hole in the wood, glass, plastic or another material of your choice. Hunters often prefer to have windows all around the deer stand, as this gives them an advantage of "spotting" the deer. Secure the window according to the manufacturer's directions; this varies depending upon what type of window you want in your deer stand.
Accessorize the deer stand to your personal preference. You may want to include seating, as this provides a place to rest your legs during a long day in the deer stand. A place to hold drinks and clothing also comes in very hand while sitting in deer stands for hours.
