Alright guys I need ideas. Pics are darn near mandatory. I have some good preset spots but only 1 platform. I’d much rather have it all set up so I don’t have to do anything when I get to my spot in the morning. What are you preset guys using??

Man you must have more money than you know what to do with lol!

I recently started drilling my presets and doing a ring of bolts and I’m loving it.

My buddy is a platform guy and was skeptical but he sat in one of my spots and he was sold on it.

Pretty much do this for all my morning spots as it’s quick and easy.

Do you have a thread or video on you presets?
No vids...I have a face for radio lol.
Ive posted some pics in other threads, but no actual threads of my stands.
Its an old time design that was plywood and rope, we converted to steel grating and chain. It isn't light weight but these materials were free or low cost. I've made quite a few of these over the years...spent many hundreds of hours on these.
They are rock solid and weather proof/squirrel proof.

If you have access to a welder, a treesuit style platform works pretty well for presets. I had 3 of them made for $45 this year and love them

I build mine with treated lumber and poly glue. Got this buck Monday from one. I also put some punch angle at the 4 points of tree
contact. A couple of ratchet straps and they don't move. So if you don't have a welder but do have a miter saw...……...
