ABC Wednesday ~ D is for...

Let me start out by saying that for this round of  ABC Wednesday I am trying to be original. There is nothing wrong with multiple post of dogs or donuts. Everyone has there own perspective and I enjoy the views that are shared. I'm just trying to share a little bit of my world and hope that along the way I am sharing something ... maybe you never thought about or maybe you never knew about.

In saying that ~D is for Deer stand~

I have pretty much lived my whole life in the Mid-Western part of the U.S.. And while I have noticed theses structures in other states, there is such an over abundance of them where I live now. And, in this state, they come in all different shapes and sizes. If you buy a stand at a store, this is pretty much what you get.


I have seen this type once or twice, but not in this good of a condition. Now mind you, someone is sitting in this for several  hours, waiting for a deer to come along. (Could be even a day or two.)

When you are driving down the road and look off into wooded areas, you usually see structures similar to this.

But sometimes you come across some unique deer stands. These are some that hubby and I came across while snowmobiling this past week-end.
As you can see, this one has a pipe stack for some sort of heat. After all, you might be here a week waiting for your deer to wonder on by.


I had to show both sides of this one. You can rent it, if you don't have your own.

The person who owns this one must sleep here and doesn't mind the wind or snow.
I hope you enjoyed my letter ~D~ and that you learned something new.

Thanks Mrs Nesbitt! I'm really enjoying this round. For more posts on the letter ~D~ click HERE

Well I certainly learned something new today. I guess a deer stand is like a duck blind.
I don't think I would like to sit in that contraption you showed in the first picture. Talk about uncomfortable.

Definitely learned something new! Living in the city, I don't see any of these contraptions, but they are most interesting.

The first one looks more comfortable than the last one, but I don't think I want to think about people hiding in trees so they can shoot deer. It's kinda creepy.

The first one looks kinda dangerous if you drop off to sleep.

Too bad that they are wanting to see them to shoot them. I do understand the hunting mentality, but it's not something I feel good about. Now I'd be happy to sit quietly in one of those things just to see what kind of wild life would come by -- especially for bird watching.

Well, I do love dogs and donuts, but I must say this is a very unique post. I've never heard of deer stands before, but then I'm a city dweller who doesn't go in for hunting deer. Have a delightful week, Vicki.
