So I have been working on getting a calling rack for the last 6 months. Just piecing it together as I go. Finally got it just about finished up. Just have to had some pipe insulation around where my tie down straps go. Will post pics of it in my pickup after I get it loaded up! What do yall think? Is there anything else I should do?

Need to but burlap or enclose the box. Will hide you better and will be warmer if you close it in. Looks good. Need to build on myself.

Add you a box of some kind for your light guy to stand on. Keep him from having to hold the light up above his head all night.

ive got it set up so it has 2 spot light ports in the front corners. One spot lighter will go from the right front and will cover the front and the right side. the other spot lighter will go from the left back and shine behind and to the left side. that way the spot lighter will never have to shine over the shooter. still considering adding a box to it just dont know if i want to as of now. For the time being i may just secure my cooler up there and stand on that. that way our waters will always be readily available

Also plan on boxing it in at some point but really worried about wind resistance killing my already crappy gas mileage seeing as how i have to drive everywhere to get to places i can call on.

May surprise you how much wind drag there will be without it being enclosed....looks solid though!

Yeah there's already some drag. Are you saying there won't be much more drag if I wall it in? Was thinking about doing expanded metal on the front and back and wood on the sides and I could just position the truck accordingly
