    Have a few high seats needs at various places so decided to build a couple and make then substantial for both roe and foxes.Had to chain saw a couple of acres of fund bushes in all to allow this one to get built plus provide a clear area in front.b0a0RQf.jpg

    Very impressive. 

    Are you getting nervous about the visit by your friends in the south by any chance?

    Cheers JD.

    Aye,im going to take cover in this till they go home!!

    Away back doon to Suffolk next week for 3 days and will be hard to live up to what they are providing but will try.No way could i guide as the pressure to supply wouldnt allow much sleep even though numbers are high in the area.

    Just wanting the weather to be half decent for them too.Thats hit or miss and can affect the roe without a doubt but its beyond our control anyway.

    Cheers.

    Just had a look and Walkers is spot on too.

    Planning on doing a fair bit all night foxing from this one so thats why its maybe overboard.

    don't think it's overboard, if your building it you might as well do a proper job :good:

    Nice job indeed. Also nice and cosy. I've given up sitting in open seats unless I have to. That is a real pro job.  Don't forget the shelving for flask, mug, sandwiches and alarm clock:good::yes:

    Cheers fella.

    We have always done the odd one or two like this and the old fellas had electric and a bed but he spent most of his time in it,lol.

    Plenty room inside this one for some luxuries and will see what it ends up like.

    Not the best of days and was half expecting the hoosie on her ribs but she hadnt moved at all so spent a couple of hours on it.

    Checked the frames for the windows and made them up today with 6mm perspex,hinged them and hopefully hang them tomorrow weather permitting.

    Hung the door,sheeted the roof ready for tin and ply lined most of the inside so mostly fiddly work left to do.

    Do you intend fitting a safety rail around the area by the door?  I'm not one of these H & S guys but think I would fit one. Wood gets pretty slippy when wet.

    Absolutely 1st class mate , looks a stunning bit of ground. I can imagine some great sport to be had from there :yes:

    Hopefully we will although this part of it might take a while to get over the disturbance although after the first day of starting the camera got a fox just 50m from it.

    This is going to be one of those hides where you miss half the shooting opportunities because you were too busy admiring the view. Super build

    Between that and sleeping.:good:
