Growing up, it seemed that every kids dream was to build a tree house. You raided your parents garage for scrap pieces of lumber, then you scoped out the perfect tree that would support your creation.

But there was never a tree perfectly suited for a tree house.

Since you already have the lumber from the garage you might as well make a clubhouse for you and your friends. A few bent nails later, and mom comes out of the house yelling something about us killing the grass underneath the clubhouse.

Fast forward 34 years later:

What was once called a tree house is now a deer stand – a place to sit in solitude or to gather with friends to await the arrival of a prize buck…or just a place to sit and drink 20 feet in the air.

Either way, Farm and Home Supply and 97.9 KICK-FM are holding our annual Ultimate Deer Stand Contest. A chance for you to win a $150 Gift Card. Our judges will pick the ‘Best Redneck Built’, Best Hand Built’, and ‘Best Factory Built’ Deer Stands. Is it a luxurious ‘Home Away From Home’, or really unusual?
