    Not sure what experiences have led you to that conclusion, because I probably don't understand everything about where you're hunting. But that is the opposite of my experiences. I've had great success scouting during the season and moving around. I can think of a couple I've killed right off the top of my head. I wouldn't have had either one of these bucks without making a late season move. Probably could add a couple more if I could find pics of them. And there are at least a dozen others I could've killed if everything had gone right. But don't take my advice, you never do anyway. I'm guessing you've never watched The Hunting Public on YouTube. I luv those guys because they're doing it right and they're doing it mostly on public land. They hunt the way I always have, I just didn't know I was doing something different than most other guys. But maybe it's different down in Tarheel land, I don't know. I only know the hills of PA. And I know this. When you go to the same hunting spot, walking in and out the same way, time after time, deer know it. The mature deer will learn quickly to avoid those areas. I believe using the saddle increases my ability to be more mobile, it certainly was easier bouncing around this year than using a treestand was in prior years. "But wisdom is proved right by her deeds."

    I'm guessing his friend is from New Jersey, since he was the one asking all the questions.

    I'm slowly gathering ammunition for my argument. :wink It will work against me if some of the new stuff is significantly reduced in weight. We'll wait until the ATA show? (Will there be an ATA show? --Freakin' Wuhanians ....) As far as scouting during the season goes, it's tricky. You're either a few days behind the action, or screwing up the action by intruding. I have very rarely killed a buck by discovering him mid-season by his sign. Discovering *deer* sign and sitting over it hoping that does will pull a buck in is a slightly different story. But even that is most often hit-or-miss during the rut. It seems to me that "mind-reading" buck behavior and using terrain and previously-acquired knowledge of the territory is a higher-odds proposition to kill decent bucks consistently, at least on public land or even private that you are sharing.

    Excellent, I'm going to try this for my friend. Cilantro has the most bitter taste for me. I can detect the smallest sliver in salsa or soup.

    There are a lot if variations on the basic theme, and the best ones involve roasting whole ears of corn, cutting the kernals off and then boiling the cobs to make a corn stock. But I didn't feel like venturing out and trying to find halfway decent frozen ears of corn, so just did the bestI could with what I had on hand: - 40 oz canned sweet corn (generally 1 lg & 1 small can) - 2 lg poblanos, or 3-4 smaller ones - 1 medium white onion - 2 cloves of garlic - 1 tbsp olive oil (or butter, or whatever you like for sauteing) - 1 cup heavy cream - 1/2 lb skinless roasted chicken - 2-3 cups chicken stock - 2 tsp smoked paprika - 1 tsp cumin - salt and pepper to taste 1) Roast the poblanos, let cool then remove the charred skin. I assume you know how to roast peppers, so I won't bore you with the details. 2) Heat the oil in your soup pot over medium heat. 3) While the oil is heating, dice the onion and mince the garlic. 4) Saute the onion, stirring frequently until transluscent (~5 minutes.) 5) Add the garlic and stir for another 30 seconds or so. 6) Open the canned corn and separate the kernels from the water, saving the water. That's going to be the basis for your lazy man's instant corn stock. 7) Add the corn kernels to the pot and cook for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. 8) While the kernels are heating up, deseed and chop your roasted poblanos and add to the pot. 9) The water from the cans of corn likely comes to somewhere between 2-3 cups in volume. Add enough chicken stock to bring the total to 5 cups and add it all to the pot. 10) Add the spices and stir to combine. 11) Simmer the mixture for 30 minutes. 12) While the simmering is going on, shred the chicken meat. If it doesn't lend itself to shredding, chop it into small bite-sized pieces. 13) After the 30 minute simmer puree the soup until fairly smooth using either an immersion blender (easiest) or a conventional blender (smoother results, though you'll have to do this in a couple of batches unless you've scaled the recipe down a bit.) 14) Return the soup to the pot (if you used a blender) and add the chicken and heavy cream. Stir to combine and let heat through for about 5-10 minutes. 15) Fill up a bowl, grab your big-assed soup spoon, put on a good movie and enjoy. I was lucky enough to be born without the gene that makes cilantro taste like soap (or with the gene that prevents it from tasting that way...I'm not sure which is the case).

    Really I don't follow you on this at all. Tethrd is coming out with the Tethrd One sticks, 18" long, weigh less than a lb. each. Timber Ninja has a 20" stick you can get with a built in aider, weighs 1.2 lbs. With the Tethrd stick I could also use my Knaider, that will eliminate a stick completely, probably only need 4 to get to 20 feet. You can also get a small lightweight platform that weighs less than 2 lbs. You can make this as lightweight as you need to. If you don't want to move around, but want to keep going to your same old tired stands just do it, we don't need you in the saddle hunting community. :grin:

    My first buck from the saddle. I ignored everything you told me to do, that was the key to my success. :ach: I used a saddle, I scouted during the season and moved to where the fresh sign was, and I was only 18 ft. up the tree. Remember kids, you can't believe everything you read on the internet. :-)

    Pro tip: Like most other capsicum, poblanos develop more heat if you leave them to begin ripening before you pick them...like I did. This soup has some kick. ETA: It's better than it looks

I also substituted a poblano for the jalapenos because I prefer their flavor, and the habaneros already bring plenty of heat.
