I hunted a place with some folks once and I remember a couple of names: There's the Busch trail, named because someone had left a trail of beer cans to the stand, and there's the knee high sh t tree---where one of the hunters once had a bad case of the runs......
yellow bag stand
white bucket stand
stink lake stand
Last Thursday of Nov stand
The gum tree stand
The Bottom tower
Ridge Road stand
I am tired of thinking of them:thumb:
The Arlington - as big as a hotel, my grandmother hated ladders so we built a huge set of stairs up to it, roof, walls, pee funnel and heater. She loved it and my sister and I would fight over who got to help her track her deer when she shot.
Missem - nuff said.
Circus Wreck - metal stand that an uncle painted with bright red, then covered with yellow and bright green spots, looks like a circus had a wreck was all my dad said the first time we saw it.
Crazy Lady - sisters stand, guys from an adjacent lease used to hunt the road alot and one day they ran dogs across the road shooting like crazy toward her area of the woods. She came running out of the woods screaming at them like crazy shooting in the air. That put an end to the road hunting in that area. Guy said there was some crazy lady in the woods.
Toilet Paper - Grandma's first stand, got it's name when she shot a buck and my sis was helping her track it. She wanted to know how we did it because we had never lost one. Sis told her to put a piece of TP on the ground every once in a while to keep track of the direction of the blood trail. After about 100 yards sis looked back and she had put a piece on every drop of blood, used nearly an entire roll of TP.
Well.......the Condo on the River is now called..........the Condo IN the river.
My favorite of all our stands is the HiTech Redneck Stand.......well, it was a great stand as far as kills went......until a few weeks ago. Loggers came in and right now it looks like they dropped a bomb around it........maybe HG will post a picture of it. Looks bleak right now, but he and I are thinking positive about what we can do when the loggers move out and it dries up !!!!!
The Cotton Picker Stand, someone had driven cotton pickers in the tree years before
The Bobcat Stand, 4 bobcats have died there
The Crush Stand, we built it and the wind came and blew a big tree across it before we could hunt it so we built another there
The Pin Oak Flat, dad's stand. One of the most beautiful pin and willow oak flats in the bottoms. At one time you could see for 200 yards under the canopy, now it is about 100-150. More deer have died here than anywhere else on the lease
The Preachers Stand, this one is mine. I would bring preacher friends down to hunt and put them on it so they could kill a deer, and many did
The 'T', two wet weather sloughs connect here. Not hunted often but this is where you will find the 'in between' deer towards seasons end if it isn't flooded
Gum Springs, it sits across the river from Gum Springs. Now it could be called Connie's Stand since my wife hunts it every time she is in the woods
The North Line, The Front North, Michaels Stand (After a young man who died from Cancer at less than 25 years old), The Holly Tree, The Seven Point Stand, The Milk Crate Stand, Cantley's Stand, The Nook, The Crazy Bhes Stand, not one of our members but we use it as a reference (she is in the adjacent club and she shoots all the time and over your head if you come past her, even on your own side of the line. That won't be happening again)
Panty Hose - no comment
Each member has two stands on the lease. So most are names after the member and it's location as well.
