Looks good, did you add to the side of the stair stringers? That looks like a long run, and with the notches cut for treads  you should double up the stringers for strength. Imho.

Yes another 2x4  to outside..

That does look nice.  I did the opposite (planted before projects) to take advantage of the brief lull between rains.  Last year, the corn I planted after Memorial Day didn’t amount to Jack Sqwat and I feared a repeat.   
 

I plan (2) new blind locations this year.  I can move this one into place, in less then 15 minutes, using fork extensions on my loader tractor.  It will also take about that long to set up my pop-up in the other spot.   I hope to be able to squeeze that half hour into my busy “free time” schedule, sometime before September 8 , when I think the early antlerless gun season for deer starts in my home wmu.

I googled NY early gun season and it shows up right now on that the dates are September 10 thru 18th for 2022.  Both of my local spots are in wmu 9F but I see 9A is in also, as well as many others.  
 

Like last year, that includes (4) weekend days.   I hope to be able to hunt all of those weekend days this year.  Last year, I missed two of those weekend days because my brother got married out of town.   

I prefer the weekends, because the carcasses need to be skinned and refrigerated then, due to the warmer temps, and that is too hectic to try and get done on a weeknight.  

Having double the hunting time this year, and likely a freezer still in decent shape as far as venison, I plan on being more selective, targeting only mature (1.5 yr plus) does.

Who are you and what did you do with wolc123?

I should have a bb roast left over from last year, to stuff this years turkey with, so I won’t be needing more of those.   Last years made that the best Thanksgiving ever.  First time I didn’t have to eat any turkey on that day.  I guess I did eat the heart and liver from a couple and they were ok but not as good as that turkey roasted bb.
