Deer Hunters!!

Alright yall, gotta couple questions for yall. I understand a lot of you build your own deer stands and feeders. But for the ones who buy, or would think about buying these products, what do you look for in these products.

Reason I am asking, is my fiance and I are starting us up a deer product business and we are looking for feedback in what customers would want.

My idea for our product line is a plain jane deer stand that you have option to add accessories to for a certain amount of money per accessory.

SO let me hear what yall think!

MINE - 1997 F-350 ZF5 XL
WIFES - 2006 F250 Lariat FX4

Lightweight (maybe aluminum) but also needs to be strong enough to withstand all these pigs in Texas so maybe not aluminum. That applies to stands and feeders.

For the feeders, they need to be easy to open and fill with just one person and you need to be able to get your truck close enough to the feeder...a lot of feeder legs stick out at an angle too much and when you drive your truck next to them to fill them up, you're a couple of feet away from the actual opening of the feeder.

Stands need windows that are quiet when you open/close them. If you use plywood for the floor, it needs to have astroturf or carpet on it so that your chair doesn't make a lot of noise when you're rolling your chair around.

I could go on for a long time about this stuff.

2004 F-250 CCSB (sold)
1997 F-250 CCSB (sold)

you looking at something like a tree stand or like an elevated blind?
i mostly do spot and stalk not a lot of thick woods where i hunted back home. not to mention people back home in california werent very hunter friendly. ive always like the idea of a tree stand platform that you can pack in on something like a back pack and can throw in a tree when you find a good spot.
