DULUTH, Minn. (AP) -- Hunters are building elaborate platforms in Minnesota trees so that they can watch for deer in comfort.
Typical deer stands consist of a few boards nailed into a tree to allow hunters to see above the brush.
But St. Louis County Land Commissioner Bob Krepps tells The Duluth News Tribune he's seeing stands with stairways, decks, shingled roofs, commercial windows, insulation, propane heaters, carpeting, lounge chairs, tables and even occasionally generators.
Krepps calls the stands "mansions" in the trees.
The newspaper reported Sunday that one deer stand found on county land was an 18-by-20-foot cabin.
It says some hunters are even planting crops on public land to attract deer and make it easier to get a shot.
