Having sat in a highseat exposed to the elements for the past couple of months I have decided that the British weather is a joke at the moment and am looking to build a couple of deer towers. I have access to over mature chestnut coppice, silver birch and sycamore and would like to go for the more rustic look so it blends in better with the woodland.
The Thetford Forest towers while impressive look expensive and probably stick out like a sore thumb in the woodland envelope. I am also reluctant to build something so substantial simply because of the risk of it being damaged by antis or knocked by the woodsman and the forwarder.
Has anyone built any towers out of basic supplies? I would be interested to hear about anyones experiences or advice you might have on its construction. Photos would be greatly received to generate ideas. I hope anything that comes to light under this thread will be of use to others too. Thanks
