Cross posted to deer hunting: Anyone have any insight or suggestions as to how to move a 15 foot metal base Fiberglass tower stand? It has attached stairs that can be removed (I believe). It weights a ton - literally and I have to move it about 300 yards.

I used a tractor with dual hay spikes on the front to move mine

I just took mine off of a 10ft tower and mounted it on trailer for this very reason.

15ft, you either going to have to rent a telescoping cherry picker or lay it down. No way I would try to drag something that tall.

Cherry picker. Lay it down on a flatbed. Donít risk twisting it up or getting hurt trying to lift it.
We moved a 10í tower with a 4x6 on it by laying it down on an 18í trailer, then chaining the legs to the back of the trailer and lifting it with a web strap over a ladder while backing off a winch on a 4-wheeler to keep it from tipping too far.
