Not exactly sure on your budget but, if you're looking for good windows here's a link. They sell doors too. deerviewwindows.com/
I've made my own windows before out of plexiglass. These are far nicer. Good luck and enjoy the experience. Take pics along the way and share them. I'd invest in some outdoor carpeting too to help dampen any noise. Not quite necessary but, it helps.
Our final 30 minutes Jim! Haven't seen a thing yet
Brandon, I stayed until the bitter end. LOL! I'll take that recipe please for tag soup. Still was a good season. Helped my grandson get his first deer. Means more than me getting one. Wanda has some venison round steak chili going in the crock pot. Wish you and Daphne were closer to us. We would have you over for dinner!
Thanks Jim! We'd love to have dinner with you two again sometime. Maybe we can meet half way. I had a lot of fun this year. I had a blast chasing the Big 9 and checking out some up and comers. I learned a lot this year. I definitely have some stands to move. October is only 10 months away!
Set up on the ground with my Caldwell Fieldpod. I'm on the northwest corner of a hardwoods ridge that runs east and west. The deer funneled out of it yesterday afternoon and into a cut corn field to feed. I'm only hoping they do the same. Ice pellets are now falling.
I'm the red "X". The green arrow indicates their travel path off the ridge and into the cut corn.
Well headed out for the last hoorah! Conventional hunting hasn't helped me out a whole lot so far so today I'm trying something different. Little more risky getting in on their bedding area. But, what have I got to lose!
Just wanted to update this post. I wanted to let you know that He doesn't seem as distant these days!
We've been through some trials this past month. Started with the heat going out in my shop. Some of you know that I do cerakoting and Hydrographics in my shop and without heat, I cannot paint, clear coat or dip. Frustrating. I was agitated about it but, I didn't let myself lose my cool over it. And I trusted God would make a way. This past Thursday I was able to order an actual furnace rather than the electrical unit I was using before.
On December 15 my wife got up at 5am with her heart racing. We took her to the er where her heart was between 180-200 for 3 hours! She was tacicardic and in Afib. They tried a couple different medications at different doses to no avail. They ended up having to sedate her and shock her back into rthym. We also discovered that her thyroid levels were elevated. This trip to the er was of course followed by several doctor visits and a trip to a cardiologist. Normally I would start stressing about medical bills. However, I hadn't even considered them. I know He will provide!
Upon arriving at home from her first trip to the cardiologist I entered the front door. She was still on the front porch and stomped the snow off her boots. As she did the front porch collapsed. The sound startled me. I knew what had happened and was afraid to even look. But when I rushed out there she was. Just standing on the ruble. She smiled and we both just laughed about it. Again, I usually would have been mad and worried about the cost of replacing it but not this time. I've had a peace of mind in knowing the God would yet again provide. The following day (even though it was -3 degrees) I was able to tear out the old and get lumber for the new and replace it.
God knew these events were going to take place and I believe His absence from me was to make me draw nearer to Him. To see if I'd seek Him more, trust Him more, and have the faith that He'd provide. And ultimately it was to help me give birth to a greater relationship with Him.
I truly am so grateful for His presence in my life. He has never failed me or forsaken me. He loves us so much!
