This strategy could be perfect for run-and-gun situations during a firearm season. For areas with large CRP fields and no trees, the ladder could be an easy way to get a good vantage point with little to no work.

The ladder strategy is cost-effective, light and extremely quiet. For around $50 and an hour of labor, this project is perfect for any ground hunters looking to get a little better view.

A padded seat could be a nice upgrade for the ladder, and would be an easy modification.
