Hunting Camp

I went to my FIL's hunting camp in Arkansas this morning.  It was the first time I had seen the new camp.  His hunting land floods every year, and a couple years ago a flood destroyed his elevated camp.  His new camp sits on foam, and can float as the waters rise.  There are four 25 foot tall posts that help guide the building up. 

Here's the neighbor's camp; a more traditional elevated building:

Here's the floating camp:

It's a great solution for the flooding problems they have.
There weren't many deer out today, but we saw a nice buck, a couple does, and about 10 turkeys.

Nick and I will be driving up to Fayetteville, Monday.  We will be there for a couple days, and then we will be coming back to his hometown for Thanksgiving.
