    Go to the Australian forum AHN if your not already a member and search up the member mchughcb . He has a thread going at the moment about tree stands that's he is experimenting with built out of timber .
    Where in Aus are you because if your down in Samber country he might be close .

    I made a rough as one with steel, not the best (wouldn't come close to it) but it works, haven''t used it hunting yet though (don't think I ever will)

    Check out Cabelas.com
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Cheers guys, HartHunter and I are making a few but I want to have a proper one for some bow hunt guiding I'm planning on doing. I actually ended up buying one through ebay. Went with a 2 man ladder tree stand.

    Cheers Ground Control - I am a member there but don't really use it, I've tried asking a few questions here and there and never really get much help so I didn't bother.

    Mate , I totally understand your comments about AHN

    There is an extraordinary number of armchair experts with very bad social skills there . I read a lot but say little there , mainly just interested in keeping up with Aussie shooting gossip .
    Good luck with the tree stand I'd be interested to know how you get on with it .
    Are you going to use it in heavily wooded areas or is it just to get yourself a better view of the surroundings , waterhole , wallow etc ?

    Yeh I totally agree, there is also a guy there who seems to be held in high esteem which I know is an absolute big noting wanker in real life and that was pretty much the nail in the coffin for that forum. And I've noticed that most heads that pop up there end up on facebook anyway.

    Mostly for wooded stuff I'd say, I bow hunt and will hopefully be doing some archery guiding in SA next year so I want it for that as well. I'm in Vic myself.

    Oh shit Dundee, best get PT to stay home from school and on the end of a chainsaw. A 30 metre Blue Gum came down on my neighbours place and fell right across a deer fence line.
