A friend of mine has and i will be purchasing one for next year, like everything it takes some time getting used to setting up and using but overall i like it more than putting on a hang on stand, and alot safer and you can go higher faster.

From experience with a conventional climber, I think the tree lounge might limit you to shooting only in front of you unless you purchase the expensive gun or bow hunter units.

I like the conventional climbers, such as the Summit Viper, because you can stand up with ease and shoot behind you without problems. Plus, your feet is always on the footing part and you don't have to move too much to go up or down the tree: less movement equals less opportunity to play the hanging game. Oh, and you just can't beat porting 21-lbs to your tree.

I've had my tree lounge for over 5 years. Its the most comfortable tree stand I have ever used. Pro's its stable,easy to use, comfortable. Cons its heavy. My sons and I have shot 6 deer out of them rifle hunting. The only time I don't use it is in single digit or colder weather as I just can's seem to keep warm. Then I use a ground blind so I can move more.

I have had one for years. I am 6'5" and I know they have one for tall guys now, but mine is still the best stand I have ever had. I never thought it was that heavy.

Shooting to your weak side can be a problem, I have shot 3 deer in the past 2 years left handed (and missed one) but for comfort and warmth it can't be beat. Not sitting up having your legs go numb from the front of a regular seat is a huge advantage for sitting a long time.

The "square" hole the tree lounge has is superior to other climbers since you can position knots and short limbs in the 45 degree corner and slide right up the tree.

I recommend it. A little practice is in order before you head out tho.

      I want to give an honest review of Steve and north county auto. He saw my post on here of a fisherman in need and offered his service. I looked around and could have taken my hub to get repaired at multiple places closer to me than Crystal, but decided to give another fisherman a try.    This was a perfect experience.  He was willing to meet me outside of normal business hours to accommodate my schedule. The stitch up appears totally solid (double stitched) and Steve even warranteed the repair. The price was more than fair and he's a nice guy to boot.    I'd definitely recommend this place if you're in need of canvas repair. He does a bunch of other things for the open water fisherman as well.    My apologies if this somehow violates any rules on the forum (I never looked) but my experience was a good one and wanted to pass it along.

      We did not go all the way out this weekend so I can't say for sure where 'most' were fishing.  Since you can literally go anywhere, there were no real "concentrations" of houses that I saw.  Everyone was spread out real nice except I did see quite a few houses fishing in closer to Pine, near the snowmobile trail, based on the distance (maybe a mile or mile and a half out?) I would guess they were "shallow" and not out to the basin.  Distance can be tough to judge so this is my approximation.   Some friends road sleds WAY north and were surprised that shortly after they set up a suburban came from the south and fished near them.  Like I was saying people are spread out.   Adrian's road now only goes out 11.5 vs. the 16 miles they were out a week ago.   Good Luck!

      Was on the boat Sunday got a little further past the 49 bridge. Is the 22 landing opening up at all? Anyone know how much ice is even out there? I would think we made a little.
