    That looks spot on. Best of luck with it.

    a tidy piece of work, is there not a risk with reds that unless you flatten what you see survivors will just avoid the area like the plague?
    A nieghbour did the same and now deer only get within range after dark o'clock.

    The hide is on a square opening approx 200yrds x 200yrds in the middle of a 120 acre woodland and we only get transitory beasts going from the forest on the north through our ground to the farmers field on the south so we are hoping the above scenario does not occur.

    Wee bit of an update- we went stalking yesterday and encountered 10 reds but all hinds and no stags- , so we decided to put finishing touches to our hide/tower. We were in the process of hammering old carpets and visqueen to the floor and walls to make it water/wind and noise proof when I looked out of the hide to the right and there at 180yrds out was a roe buck contently browsing the trees.

    I attempted to crawl 'army style' along the tussocks (much to Ewich's amusement) to get the rifle out of the car which was 10yrds away but Mr Buck carried on munching before disappearing back into the wood before I could get sorted. Mr Buck was totally unphased by the presence of the motor or our work activities.

    Now the hide is totally, totally finished it is to be put to good use.
