Well look at it this way... There aren't any trees big enough for a Tree stand in the middle of this field. Actually it is a drainage area that won't support Fir trees so Elk and Deer both graze there. It isn't that far from the cabin and heck, Some evenings I don't feel like hiking five miles, so why not just hang around in the tree fort ?
A porta potty ?
It would make a fine year round wildlife observation tower..
