Loggy Bayou Monarch

Recommended Posts

LABS4ME

Does anybody here use a Loggy Bayou Monarch stand? I'm looking for a good light weight stand that I can pack in to inaccessible areas, but that are comfortable for all day hunting. I hunted out of my buddies Lone Wolf and liked it, but the seat had a little to be desired. I found this one on line at Cabelas and it is even lighter than the Lone Wolf, has a bigger platform and they claim it is an 'all day seat'. Plus it's less money.... grin.gif

Looking for a real world - honest assessment.

Thanks!

Good Luck!

I have a Monarch and love it. It clings on to the tree tight and it is super lightweight. You'll love it.

I too have the monarch, very light weight and very comfortable seat. The stand is a little noisy when trying to hang it but I made a hook similar to what the lonewolf stands use for hanging. I put the hook arond the tree and then put the stand on the hook, seems to work good. The seat does take up a good part of the platform but with the footrest you cold sit all day.

Thanks! Is it quiet once it's mounted to the tree? I had an older aluminum stand and it was real squeeky the colder it got... That Lone Wolf I hunted out of was VERY quiet... I just think I will like a more comfy stand...

Good Luck!

I have a Millenium M-100 stand, and it's easy to hang with the Cam system, and super comfortable. It feels like you're sitting in a really nice lawn chair.

I haven't had any issues with noise once it was on the tree. After the stand is on the tree it is very sturdy and very quiet. Not sure if it will be noisier when it gets colder but I don't think that will be a problem. I would reccomend getting one.

I just bought the same stand....I have not yet had a chance to use it...but when I do...I will post a report. From all the research I did on the web...it sounds like a pretty good stand. I am interested in seeing how much I like or dislike the seat. I sit all day...so I am looking for something comfy...

Thanks again ACT!

Cliffy, I'd be interested to hear your thoughts on the seat. I am holding off for 2 more weeks, but will be buying a new stand before the rut takes off.

Good Luck!

Well, here are my two cents so far.

I got the Loggy Bayou Monarch Pro staff about a week ago...I have not had the chance to use it hunting but I have played around with it.

It came with really poor directions but did have a DVD that I assume had better directions...but the DVD would not play on my DVD player or Computer....so I just had to figure it out myself by using common sense and looking at pics on-line. It was not too hard but still thought it should come with better directions or a working DVD.

My first impression was the fact it was very light....10lbs. The seat is big and seemed like it was pretty well made. The straps were basic...but just fine.

I took it out and put it up in a tree and it went pretty well. The strap that goes behind the seat worked really well....the one that goes down by the base was more of a pain in the butt. You see, the seat strap goes into a couple of D-rings and the strap has a latch that wont allow it to fall out. The base strap is just plain and goes into a couple of holes...so if your not holding on to it as you are trying to swing the strap around the tree...it could fall out to the ground. See pics.

I sat in the seat and IT WAS VERY COMFORTABLE!! Two thumbs up. I found the stand to be rock solid and I didn’t detect any noise when I stood up or adjusted my sitting position. Over all I am satisfied with it and cant wait to break it in at Camp Ripley.

Cliffy.

      Spent a couple hours on Elysian this afternoon.  Drove around some shallow areas on the south east end of the lake with the trolling motor and only saw carp. Water is still unusually clear for this lake, at any time of the year, and 79 degrees near shore. May be a great opportunity for a bow fisherman, even in the daylight. Tried soaking minnows in a hole on the north end with no luck.

      My choice would be Namakan, but honestly that’s mostly based on emotion. It’s where my dad and I fished the most while up there. I also think it’s prettier than Kab.  I’ve never been on Sand Point or Crane. Just my two cents. I’ll be up there one week from today. Staying on the Ash River if anyone would care to enjoy a cold one first round is on my buddy. 😁

      Sounds like a heck of an evening! Alot of fun also.

      Hit the water at 5 and back to shore at 7. 21 smallies smacked the stick bait.   Biggest went 18.  Had one that did a great jump and landed in the yak by my foot. LOL

      The Great Lakes Compact Council and the Great Lakes Regional Body are seeking public feedback on draft updates to the procedures for reviewing requests to divert water from the Great Lakes Basin. The compact is federal law that governs the use of water in the Great Lakes watershed. The compact council and regional body are accepting comments through June 21, at 4:30 p.m.  Under the compact, diversions of water out of the Great Lakes-St. Lawrence River Basin are generally prohibited. However, the compact identifies limited circumstances under which diversion may be allowed. In some instances, before a diversion proposal can be approved, it must undergo review by the regional body and may require approval by the compact council. The draft updates are strictly procedural and would not modify the compact’s basic terms. The compact council is composed of the governors of the eight states that border the Great Lakes. The regional body includes the eight governors on the council plus the premiers of Ontario and Quebec. The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources is Gov. Mark Dayton’s delegate to both groups and provides data and water management expertise to assist implementing the compact. The effort to refine the procedures under the compact follows the states’ and provinces’ first experience reviewing a diversion request under the agreement. Reflecting on that experience and feedback from stakeholder groups, the states and provinces concluded that some aspects of the procedures should be clarified or refined. Following discussions with key stakeholders and tribal interests, the states and provinces developed the draft updates that were released for public review May 22. The updates include these changes: Expands opportunities for the public to participate at hearings and public meetings. Acknowledges the special status of First Nations and federally recognized Tribes through separate meetings with them and granting standing to contest compact council decisions. Identifies circumstances under which an additional public comment period would be offered between issuance of the regional body’s declaration of finding and the compact council’s final decision. Essentially, if the compact council views the regional body’s modifications to the applicant’s diversion proposal as substantial, the council would take public comment prior to making its final decision. The existing public comment opportunity prior to the regional body’s deliberations would remain. After considering public input received by June 21, the regional body will revise the draft procedural updates this summer. The compact council will then consider the updates and decide whether some or all of them should be adopted through rulemaking. The draft updates are available at www.glslcompactcouncil.org/PUT-DraftUpdates.aspx. This website includes instructions for sharing feedback. The public input process includes an in-person opportunity to share feedback in Duluth on June 21 at Fitger’s Inn at 10:30 a.m. Documents are also available on the regional body website. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      I'm camping out on echo lake next week. Any tips or fishing info would be great.
    • brrrr
      explore with a shallow water boat, there are a few big boulders in there,and lots of gravel bars.
