Thread: Simple doe boxes.

  1. #1

    Simple doe boxes.

    After streamlining my out fit.(lucky mal has gone).
    I am busy putting up doe boxes.
    We made a prototype and it went up well tonight.
    I have enough ply to make another 12.
    some will be made with a back on some won't depending on the site.









    My father in law is a ret. time served joiner.
    He has already cut enough sheets to make six more.
    They look flimsy but are over constructed and once together become very strong.
    The wood on the production run is slightly thicker so they will be stronger still.
    Leaving large slits should alow strong winds to "blow through" and the pallets will also allow this.
    They can be moved on the pick-up flat packed and are collaspable allowing them to be removed
    The farmer was that inpressed he promised he would make us some de-lux ones with window flaps and other luxuries.
    When we arrived a doe ran in from next to the site and sid shot one of his foxes 100m's from it an hour after we had left from hammering and sawing there.
    It looks unsteady but the pallets are staked and its also attached to the tree.
    x2 people will sit in it comfy if required.

    Looks good but no use up here. We don't seem to have any simple deer. Our does have a degree in evation tactics. Nice and simple design. Will be trying a similar idea but instead of ply I intend to try building paper. Jim

    you hit the nail on the head.
    100 for 50 sheets of 20mm ply.
    shame it wasn't in green.
    LOL

    Looks good mate, what luxuries is the farmer going to put in, coffee and tea making facilities? Haha.

    Can someone please explain the difference between shooting does from a high seat or a doe box?

    Does the doe box just provide that extra protection from the elements?

    It looks good,
    Keep plenty of change in there as the passing walkers will surely stop for a cuppa
