I'm trying to figure out how to setup the tripod rigging for this, I'm open to any ideas but here is mine. Purchase a cheap tripod and remove the head, then attach it to a PVC pipe. Get a 3' piece of steel rod with a diameter that matches the inside of the PVC pipe and drive it 2' into the ground and paint it florescent orange.
I plan to return every other week or twice a month on average, but I don't think that I need to visit during December, January, or February besides for 1 big snow storm. But then again I think that I may need to visit much more frequently than every other week during the fall when the leaves are falling, and also during the spring when the buds are opening. I live on the East coast of North America in MA, so any advice would be appreciated!
