    Horse, tree saddle or shopping for some marital aids?

    I just posted the topic.

    I'm not responsible for where it goes from there.

    That's my story, and I'm stickin' to it ...

    LOL ...

    If I ever get into it, it would be without sticks. Otherwise the whole idea of a lightweight set-up is destroyed.

    I'd really like to skip the platform, too, but I just don't see how that's not making a hunting trip into a torture session. I have a few old stand platforms or stand seats I might could make into platforms before buying any new gear.

    There is a one-stick climbing method, but it's brutal. Not gonna happen in the sunny South during deer season, or with my knees. There's also a two-stick technique which is slightly more sensible but not enough to make me really consider it.

    My first buck from the saddle. I ignored everything you told me to do, that was the key to my success.

    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.

    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.

    Pretty good picture, too.

    I like how you stuck the tongue back in.
