Check this out, I have been in the back shop for the last two days it is not painted yet but I believe all the people from miles around will come to see this, I haven't decided if I need to add some lights or would a lot of strobe lights work on something like this what do you think?? ( this is one of my guys that is buying my buisness wanted to show the size comparison for you)

You must have some great resources to have created something this large! I can't even imagine how you will move it, paint it, store it! I can't wait to see it once it's painted and lit up!

This is SERIOUS WOW factor!

you can find the pattern here:

Walleyes I would need to buy a section of land if I added all those other elements I will just keep buying more controllers

Ponddude the red strobe is a good idea

Linda storing it is easy

Jim thanks for posting the website

George I castrated him so no need for a cape

Linda setting this up took three of us and non of them were women it is not light

Cenote deer do not like carrots they like cedar trees

Nurples sorry they are out of stock they will have some for next year and you are right it is huge

Paul I like the idea of lights around the horns neat idea

And last but not least thanks to Jim who I think posted this deer a couple of months ago if he didn't thanks to however did post it, I am leaving for Florida in 3 days so I have to take down what I put up before I go I want to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a happy new year to all. talk to you next year.

Although the plywood cut outs that I use are no where near as big as this one. I drove a 6' piece of rebar in the ground about 2'. I used plastic plumbers hanger tape attached to the plywood on the back side so as to form a 'loop' in the tape. This loop goes around the rebar.


This may need 4x4's driven in the ground to attach to. : ) It will defiantly be a wind catcher.

Don,

From your point of view, how do you think it will stand up to Blizzard like winds?



Well this is going to be a test I will be anchoring this thing down really well they recomend a couple of guide wires however I know for sure I am going to be using four of them also my cameras will be monitering this thing do not want any graffiti on it. as for the blizzards I am going to have the face pointed in the north so the wind will kind of go around it only 11 more months to go will take photos of it set up and let you know.

You need a red strobe on his nose!!:D

The strobe idea is starting to be a real good idea because the deer will be visible from both sides mounting the strobe is going to take a little inginuity, ya ya ya I don't have any of that LOL
