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

      So have had this small lake on my radar seance last spring, was out there and got some really nice crappies a buddy and his dad got some nice northerns, so like I said small lake max death of 5-6 ft and that is pretty much in one spot but does kind of get close to shore where there is trees in the lake. So my thought is to sit on the edge and fish for crappies and toss out a tip up closer to shore??

      Thinking about bring my wheelhouse up there tomorrow far a day of fishing and spend the night any new reports

      Was on green Thurs night was able to find a few fish in 24ft between 4:30 and 7:00  bite was OK we ending up keeping about 10 nice eaters. heading back out today

      Was on Green Thursday , fished from 3:30 to 8:30. Caught 3 nice crappies and some small perch. Funny thing the crappies were caught between 4 and 5. Not a bite after dark,  they  ( or something) was there but would not bite on anything I put in front of them. Caught the 3 in deep water with a frostee and minnow. Good Luck Moose.  I may try Little Elk this afternoon

      The wing bolt on my auger sheared off yesterday. So I spent some time getting the bolt out. Then I was off looking for the strongest bolts I could find. The auger is good to go again. Seeing I have about 5000 holes drilled with it upgrading the bolts is worth it. There is a lot of ice this year and I am not having any issue powering through it with dcd985 and the clam plate. I am getting some of the ice chips out of the hole before busting through, but I did that with the lazer mag too.  I think I am going to hit green lake after dark for some crappies with my father in law.

      Mielkez, I thought that the area you are now targeting was supposed to get the most snow from the coming storm. Cliff
    • AlwaysFishing23
      That’s exactly what finding right now nothing shallow. 20 seems key.
    • james_walleye
      I'd concentrate on the buffalo/annandale area just northwest of the metro. There's a ton of good lakes. Clearwater, Pulaski, pleasant. The list is long. 
    • Mielkez
      Alright guys. Change of plans. My group is concerned about lake travel. After consulting a snowfall map we've decided to stay south of the line that runs from basically Duluth to Lake Winnie area. Were coming from Wisconsin and don't know anything about MN lakes. Rather not do Mille Lacs. Looking for something a little smaller. Not asking for spots. Is there a lake within and hour or two to the north or east of the cities that fishes strong? Looking for panfish mostly with some walleye mixed in. Thanks. 
    • Rick G
      Pretty sure you DON'T know where this one is.... I see you creeping around, looking for my spots...lol
