    I just ordered my 25'x25' netting so it should come Wed or Thurs. How bout a race LOL JK [​IMG]
    I just finished my pole in the middle of the pen so it will teepee down.
    I am going to put a bird house on it to help support it. I got that idea from Minxfox I saw her picture and LOVED it.
    It is going to be so easy to put it up with my teepee deal.
    Once you get your teepee set up the netting will be fairly east to set up.
    Are you using zip ties to hold the netting down? I found them to be the most helpful.

    Most zip ties rot in the sun in a year or two and break. I use hog rings, there may be something better but it works for me.​

    How tall is your post, for your teepee?

    My tree is at least 12 foot high and then I need post in the ground, then run boards across then add more boards upward on that..or iam going to take wood myself, climb up that tree and drill some wood directly to the tree and make it stick up at least 3 feet taller.

    And how the heck to get the net up and over it all..I haven't a freaking clue ....

    Yeah, I'll race you..your on.. Game on

    On your mark get set go!!!!​

    LMAO, alright race is on. Hopefully ill recieve my netting before you can get yours up. Lets see how to stall you.... Hmmm so hows it going haha
    My post for my teepee is atleast 12 feet tall. I'll have to measure tommorow to give you a certain idea.
    And if zip ties, rot like that ill have to use J clips they dont rot just rust LOL
