NH MTNS. - It would be a reward just to sit on that deck and watch the seasons ease by. I think I'd have a great camera on a tri-pod and get lots of those " calendar shots " - fall foliage, snow up on the peaks, etc. Even if I didn't get a deer, I could sure mellow out in that country! Live it up !!!
This is our deer camp in Vermont deep in the Green Mtn. National Forest. Completely off the grid. It's deer hunting Benoit style for the most part. You could sit for a week and not see a deer walk by. You could also walk for a week and not see another human soul.
This is my "hunting camp" I built on my land 4 years ago. It's a 24x16 timber frame that sits on a root cellar. It's a multi-purpose building for my family...sugar house, garden shed, tool storage, tractor shed, root cellar, etc. But it is also a dedicated base of operations for deer hunting on my land. I hang all of my clothes to air out and dry on the porch. The root cellar is a great place to hang an early season deer if the temps. are warm. And I have a loft inside where I change and store all of my gear.
We bought our camp in 2007. It was a tin can, you had to hold your breath to go inside. As far as dumps go it was up there. As they say, location, location, location. My wife's parents have the place next door. We spend most weekends here from May to December.
I gutted it and added a loft on top. New siding and a few extra touches.
Single best improvement 12x24' covered patio. I keep all my hunting close under here, they never go inside. No matter the temp this is where I strip down to my undies.
This is where we hang all summer, fire pit on right cooker on left.
We try to get up for some winter fun
Until the snow really hits. Then we crash at nana and papas as our place is not kept cleared. I believe this pic was the middle of March.
