At the base of the tree it is probably only 15 ft but it goes downhill from there so it looks higher than it is....

I will post a pic this week-end from my new spot up north, that one is about 20' up.

reminds me of my uncle's deer camp. His outhouse has a bay window. I don't think anyone has shot a deer, but the last time I pooped in there, I watched three deer walk past. Out of season though

Didn't snap any of the marsh we were hunting Saturday morning. Did get two widgeon, three woodies, a mallard, and a hooded merg. Thunderstorms in 3-4 feet of water aren't fun.

I'll snap some on Saturday of the usual spot
