    What d ya recon of my high seat????

    The farmer at a new permission is so pleased with the effort weve put in to trying to sort out the fox problem on his sheep farm is so pleased that he asked me the other day would a high seat be useful.....Obviously I said yes, next thing hes started building one 10ft up in a tree apx 200 yards from the farmyard. Perfect spot with visibility and safe shots all around (except in he direction of the yard obviously). I went up today to give him a lift and get the support beams in for resting the rifles on. Hes even cut down all the trees and branches surrounding it to ensure a clear shot at all angles. What a top bloke....

    Yeah, its really solid. Put lots of support unde rit, last thing we need is one of us falling out wiht a loaded rifle!!! Dropped a big dog fox at this perm on Thursday night, just paced it out, was 254 yards away but down hill for part, line of siht apx 200 yards. WELL pleased ith the shot. Hes had a big problem there for past 5 years and as mentioned on PM only just contacted me.

    Sorry mate i cant see the same seat as every one else it looks crap and when the tree limbs move at a differing pace it should pull apart quite easy. But it is good to have the backing of the landowner. I hope you shoot plenty off it.

    Its quality workmanship that... I even hammered some of the nails in myself. It held 30 stone plus gear last night without even a creak. Yes it may move as the tree moves eventually but can be modified as required. Very pleased with it. Oh did I mention that he's going to link his sky TV to it too
