a tree saddle is a item you wear.. kinda like a safty harnes, but way better.. and you then just hang facing the tree. I have tried one in a store, I thought it would be tough to shoot from, but its not. The advantage is you can "walk" around the tree and keep the tree between you and the deer.

no stand at all... you end up putting a few tree steps in the tree to stand on and you sit in the harness. Which is one of the advatages, you dont have to carry in a tree stand if you have one a long ways back in the sticks.. we normally do not allow pictures of non-sponsor products... but a pict is worth 1000 words, this is what one looks like in use.

Thanks Deitz thats very intresting,I'm going to have to look into a tree saddle.I venture into the woods sometimes 3-5miles and not having to carry a stand would be a big plus and it also looks like you could almost use it as harness to drag out that monster buck .Thanks again for the info. Great pic it is easy to see what you mean. any estimate on what they might cost.

Will looking at the tree bark get old after a while? or do you just move around the tree to keep from getting bored looking at the same bark patch? grin.gif

      5/29/17 Fishing report from Flag Island Resort NW Angle, Lake of the Woods   Happy Memorial Day!   The past week has brought some variation in weather including sunshine, wind and rain. Overall fishing has been good.  The bug hatches have started with the fish flies having some impact on the fishing but, anglers are still consistently getting limits.   On the Minnesota side, the walleye, sauger, pike and perch bite continues. The magic depths have been between 7-13 feet in the mud and 16-26 feet on rocks. The Flag Island Flats are starting to heat up. Other hot locations include points and near shore reefs. Just the same as last week all tactics have had their day. Jigging, raps and spinners have all been producing once you find what is working. The water temp is around 58 degrees.   Over in Ontario anglers are still catching a nice mixed bag of walleye, sauger, crappie, perch, pike and smallmouth bass. The crappies are moving shallower getting ready to spawn. Some depths according to their species are as follows; Smallmouth bass 2-8 feet, Walleyes 20-24 feet and Sauger 26-30 feet. Points, reefs, humps, areas with current, rock piles and inside turns have all worked when looking for locations. A jig or spinner with a minnow or crawler has worked best. The hot colors have been gold, pink and orange.   Until next week, good luck fishing! Guides, Dan Schmidt, Jeremy Glessing and Cale Albers Flag Island Resort 218-223-8011

      Sunday, different lake, different observations. I saw a few beds, but there were not any fish on them. I caught about two dozen gills and only one was female.

      Just talked to a buddy with an Ultera issue. He damaged the belt when he secured the motor head to his boat using a ram mount. Others I talked to said keep an eye on the belt tension. It is adjustable with an allen wrench.

      Yup!  I can see how that would be annoying!    Welcome to Fishing Minnesota though.  Glad to see your posts.

      Got out on Saturday along with my brother who went out in his boat. So much mud that we went our separate ways searching for better water. With 3 in his boat he caught 5 Coho and 5 Lake Trout. I found a nice spot and went 2/5 before the wind messed up the spot. Sunday morning went out with my brother to the same spot and had a double before the third line was out. Ended up going 7/11 before a storm with red in it chased us off the lake. Loonasea was correct on the nice size of the Coho's right now. All fish were caught with stick baits on top.
