We are near Cottondale and have a 15" Ultra Deer Tower. These are the deer stands made from fiberglass tanks. It needs to be moved about 300 yards.

I don't think they are in business anymore so I am looking for another company that may have the proper equipment to move this thing. When it was delivered, they had a special winch truck that hauled it horizontal and then stood it in place.

Any leads would be helpful for getting this thing moved.


God is so good to me.

I called a local water well driller that I knew that had a winch truck, after talking to him and showing him pics, he suggested another water well driller. He called the other guy, told him what I wanted done, I got a quote over the phone, and done the next day.

Thanks, I'll try that. I'm afraid I'll tear it up if I try a DIY move.

What are the dimensions/weight?

Proper planning and i bet it aint so bad. Any possibility of moving it upright? or do you have to go under anything

Talk to a local fertilizer company to see if they have the trailer to move temporary fertilizer fiberglass tanks around to farmland. Pay them to move it and set it up. Second would be a blind mfg company that sells the taller metal tower blinds...most of those are welded to a tower and they have special trailers to move then stand up the blind. Atascosa Wildlife down here does it...Texas Wildlife Supply in Brady does it...should be someone up in that area that can do it.

Wes at Westex Steel in Santo sells a lot of towers and blinds and they used to always set them up when they sold them(if wanted) so I assume they still do. Not sure if they would move and set up one they didnt sell.
