Just be careful what animals you tick off when you pick your stand site.

I have to admit - I had never given much thought to the hazards of putting up a stand too close to the creek...

We have beavers in our creek most years without loosing a stand yet, but haven't used a nice young popple for a stand tree either close to the water. Did have the neighbors cut down my stand many years ago….course it was on their land! It was back when nobody really paid any attention to "whose land" anybody hunted and it was the only two stumps they left on the hillside and the stand had been there for a few years.

Wow, never saw that

Frisky did it. He wants you to hunt on the ground. You know. Fair chase.

No way! That's not funny, but then again, it is! Might wanna take up trapping, Matt!

That's the proof that animals can work together if they want ...

lol - I guarantee that was the only suitable tree for a stand in the whole area.

At least the stand didn't get stoled.

In my experiences trapping , beaver downing of trees of that size is normally for lodge , or dam , or repair . After those are constructed , mostly finger sized to wrist size saplings are taken for the bark/food .... maybe he didn't take it down at the end of the year and the beavers simply gave him a friendly "heads up" ? ;^))

Have had many old trees that I have used for 15-25 years of deer hunting and wildlife observation rendered to lumber in recent years ....

Wow that varmint he was angry you were in his spot and maybe his breeding grounds?

From: stykman

That is a case for justifiable homicide, or should I say beavercide. That is crazy.

Sorry for your loss, but that's just plain funny there. What do you think the Beaver thought when that tree fell and there was a "people house" on it? That's the hardest I've laughed in quite a while...Thanks

Na, Frsky would rather you hunt on the highway. It's easier on the population since those deer already been killed once. Plus you get the advantage of shooting a pre-aged deer.

Now that's some funny sh, er, stuff right there I tell ya!

From: TrapperKayak
Date: 13-Oct-17




The more I look at it, the more I laugh!

From: Bob Rowlands

Ha! Who'd a thunk it.

From: nomo
Date: 13-Oct-17




It will likely be days before I quit looking at that. A good belly laugh is good for the soul.

From: George D. Stout Compton's Traditional Bowhunters

That stand weighed more than the tree. I think the beavers may have saved them an emergency room visit. ))

who the heck hunts out of a stand that size? I've been seeing more and more of these double sized stands lately in the stores. I can't figure out if that many people want to hunt with a partner or what.

From: scienceguy

That photo is a hoot.........I can smile because it wasn't one of my stands! A couple of years ago, I had hung a stand up in an oak in August, and by October a bunch of paper hornets had built a nest ten feet higher than my platform. A friend of mine hunted that stand before me and got stung in six different places. He told me the only way he could have gotten down quicker was to jump!

From: GUTPILE PA

That is a first I've ever seen

From: nomo

You should team up with Frisky. He could haul you and that stand in on the flatbed and then drive it back out by the road and climb up and hunt elevated. That really is a nice comfortable looking stand. If I ever started hunting from a stand again, I would likely have that kind. Then, when I fell asleep I likely wouldn't fall out. ;~)

I have to admit that I stole that pic! Central Texas Hunting Association had the original on their FB page, I think...

I can see hunting out of a big double stand like that with my boys.... I'd HAVE to share it with them because I think it'd take all three of us to haul it into the woods!

Serves him right, if God wanted man to hunt from trees, he would have created us with better toes and a tail that could actually do something.

From: Bowlim

Maybe they don't cut a lot of big trees, but the one on my pond has a huge lodge, and he has girdled and left standing some pretty huge trees. Not all that happy about it. Might nail him if I lived there, but he spends more time there than I do, so I leave him along. The pond is natural, but basically 200 yds square. The current beaver will chase you down in your boat, and let you know what is on his mind wherever you are in the pond.

I know a good source of tails, well I hope they are good. Maybe I should let him know who is boss by putting a few of those on my bows.

Maybe the beaver wants the hardware too. Leave it all out there and check back in a few days; it could get interesting -"Leave it to Beavers" , "Planet of the Beavers"...

From: Fletch

Did your tree stand get damaged at all?

Good thing you weren't sitting in it at the time taking a nap while hunting. That would put a new meaning to the phrase "falling asleep."

That is flippin' hilarious!
