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

      Thanks for all the replies, we just ended up driving home (Duluth). Sorry I wasn't very specific on dates - we went up yesterday. Tried calling Pike Bay to no avail.    Hit the edge of a small reef and fished the rocks, transition, and sand. Two very small walleye were all we connected with.   Would have been nice to stay for the night bite, but got up early and did some trout fishing in the Duluth area this morning.   Tight lines.

      Smoked 8  up this weekend and really better than I thought they would be.  fillet fish leave skin on for brine 1/2 cup noniodine salt 1 cup sugar 1 qt water brine overnight rinse, pat dry and let sit out for an hour or so.  sprinkle with a seasoning if you like. I did lemon pepper on a couple and seafood magic on a couple.  have smoker heated to 200 put in smoked with a little cherry wood smoke 1 hour and done.  should be about 155 degrees internal.  nom nom nom ! ! !

      I have a BIL that lives south of there a bit. He says carnelian has lots of springs in it and wouldn't drive out there for no amount of money.

      Out on the north end. 8", 15" and a 24" over night. I've lost about 8 so far off rattles. Not sure if I'm not getting a good hookset or what. I've tried horsing them in and babying... headshakes are dislodging the hooks.   any advise? I'd have 12 on the board had I not missed any!
