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

      Here's the proof of the 28" I told you about today cliff. Unfortunately this picture doesn't make this fish out to be nearly as impressive as she was in person. I'm gonna need to work on my selfie skills.

      Interesting headline in the Virginia newspaper this morning. The Landing is being sued by past employees for not paying minimum wage, not paying overtime, and keeping up to 50% of the employees tips that were received via credit card.

      Drove to Ely yesterday and there were some pockets of great color. I would definitely think next weekend would be worth the trip.

      I would say that we are about 1/4 into fall colors in this area.

    • How are things progressing friends as far as Fall colors? Thinking of coming up the week

      Thanks

      We've done OK out there this year. Nothing special, but better for us than last year. 

      Last time out, we found piles of fish in 60-70 feet. Caught a few, couldn't release them, and stopped fishing them.  Got a couple jig rapping shallower, got a few trolling, and got a few on spinners.  No one pattern got skunked, but nothing stood out, either.

      Sorry for the late response....I suspect not many folks are building skid houses these days. :)

      Our houses have steel skids.  One had wood, but we changed them out.
