    1st stand for the 2012 season is going up today!!!!!

    I found this spot in turkey season. There is a small old apple tree that never produces but I saw it had one large scrape by it and two other smaller scrapes around it. About 25 yards away is a decent sized pine tree (great for a cover scent) with a natural hole to shoot out of. It is also right off of the same large bedding area I shot my 12 pointer out of last year. The stand I shot the 12 pointer is on the north edge of the bedding area. This stand will be on the eastern edge of the bedding area. I will take some pics after I am done and let you all see.

    sounds like a good spot, love those pine trees for stands.
    "...the deepest, most permanent features of all great moments outside are the names, faces, descriptions, and emotions. The antlers on the wall...well, they're just bones affixed to boards. But what they represent, however, is flesh and blood - fathers and sons, friends spending time with friends and the the seasons of life when the people we love were still with us. These old antlers on the wall...well, take a seat, my friend, and I'll tell you all about them." -Rev. Zeke Pipher

    well not to sound negitave here but I hope your putting up a ladderstand and not a loc on type stand

    as there honestl;y not meant to be left on the tree a Long time from a safety stand point

    even ladder stands there straps get stressed over long periods of time

    I would even go as far as to suggest leaving the straps a tad loose till hunting season and then snug them up so they are solid for hunting season

    its not just the fact the tree's grow but the UV from the sun that is hard on them straps

    just a safety thought

    but now is a great time to pick and choose stand sites

    lots of time to trim lanes and not be a disturbing the area before hunting season

    good luck and post a pic when all is set up!

ID:	8511I have 5 pictures here. The first one is my buddy making way for the stand up in the tree. The second one is the biggest scrape and the third one is one of the smaller scrapes. The fourth one is a closer view of the stand, and the fifth one I am standing right where the big scrape is. Exactly 25 yards away from the stand.

    We are also going to put some trophy rocks in a couple different spots and in July going to try a couple of small food plots. I have never tried food plots so this will be a good experience.

    Thanks for adding the pics MOTF! Boy that pine sure provides you with a ton of cover and with those scrapes it sure looks like a promising spot!!
