In many ways, 2020 will be remembered as the year when all our dependable routines and pleasurable activities were canceled. Sporting events, carnivals, movies, family gatherings – mostly cancelled. Fortunately, there is still one seasonal event that will not be canceled this year: hunting seasons are upon us. Even now, corn feeders and salt licks are being placed in the fields. Hunters are using spotting scopes and binoculars to spy on the trails and habitats of game animals in preparation for coming encounters.
As enjoyable as the preparations are, no one is going to complain if you can find a way to simplify the process of getting out into the field or up into the deer stand. You still have time this year to add a new facet to your hunting routine, one that will surely be remembered as a great idea that will last perpetually. You can purchase and assemble a new Absolute Steel Texas building kit to use as your base camp or hunting supply cache.
To clarify for our non-Texas friends, around here we don’t have the public lands to hunt on like you might find in Arizona, Colorado, Wyoming, etc. Here in Texas, if the land isn’t a state or national park, it’s probably owned by a cattleman. So hunters here may either own or lease hunting spots to use year after year. With this, it makes sense to install a small steel building to use as a base camp, or just for equipment storage.
Benefits of a Metal Building
What’s it like just before the first day of hunting season? All your gear is accumulated and packed into your vehicle for transport to the site. When you arrive, the excitement of the coming dawn is muted by the last-minute preparations. Perhaps you find yourself pitching a tent at night with inadequate lighting conditions. In the morning, you suddenly remember what it feels like to sleep on the ground in a sleeping bag. Just as you’re ready to head for the stand or to shelter yourself and watch for game, you realized there was one critical thing you forgot.
On the other hand, what if you arrived the night before the first hunt at a sturdy, weather-proof, completely secure steel building? Inside were cots and storage bins with all the gear your brought out and stored a week or so before the big day, giving you the chance to retrieve any forgotten items before they were needed. Perhaps you pulled out the portable generator you kept inside the building, fired it up, and turned on the interior lights while you finished your preparations, just before getting a good night’s sleep and waking up early and ready.
Just to build upon that idea, suppose you arrived pulling a trailer with a couple of four-wheelers. You have a carport on the side of the building so that while you are riding through the woods, your truck and trailer are protected from the elements. Not to jinx things, but suppose there comes a torrential downpour. When you get back to your campsite, you don’t have to crawl in your vehicle to warm up and dry off. Moreover, when the hunt is over, you don’t have to strike a wet tent. Instead, you can get into the building, changed into some dry clothes, and take a nap. Tomorrow will be another day for hunting.
