To each their own. I can climb, I free climb repel ect. But I see a few issues with this method. Only one issue I have that could ruin my hunt is set up. I hunt public and private and I always prepare my area prior to a hunt. Nice and portable is a great feature but it will cost you a shot you never knew you needed till you need it. With that said never climb in the dark on a tree you have never used period. Widow makers hide well in the dark. Also check your shooting lanes if you have one because I usually have to make them. A new spot always has challenges small or big. Carry a limb saw and know your shooting lanes.
what was the name of the one-hand adjustment line that you put around the tree?
I don’t think long sitting whole b very comfortable. But good video
Thank you. I enjoy your explanations of these things. Very insightful. Good luck out in the woods!
Great vid. Ive been wanting one. Thanks for the explanation. Would like to see your bike setup and how you pack for the hunt. Like how you transport your bow, arrows, etc.
How well does this system work for pine trees? Down in south Florida those are the predominant trees we have to work with. They have fairly thick bark but it comes off in small patches.
How much did this whole system run you like the saddle, lineman belt and squirrel steps would you say?
I been hiking in 1.5 miles to where I hunt the back side of my family land with a summit on my back I’ve got to old for this. I will have one of these after this video
Funny how many people don’t like this. If it’s not for you stay with your stand lol. As for me this looks great for my long hikes in and if I need to move my location more than usual!! I’ll probably just use my lock on stands for closer distances.
Yes, you can shoot behind you when you're in a treestand. Especially, standing
Are you going to climb above the scent line?
I use lone wolf sit and climb 17 lbs and very quiet. That way I am attached to the tree with my hunter safety vest, and the tree stand.
I recently began researching climbing harnesses to aid in initial setup of ladder and lock on stands, but this is interesting. I wonder what kind of chance one has of developing suspension trauma over a long period of time?
Oh "MRS. BACK IN THE WOODS...GO AHEAD AND BUY THAT OTHER PAIR OF SHOES!" 🤣
I've been using a lone wolf hand climber and I have always loved the freedom it offers, with no rails, lots of shot options. I can shoot 360° I use my tree tether to support my weight for some shots and for pissin. But, I'm severely limited in which trees I can climb. Early when I began hunting, I met a guy that tried to talk me into trying saddle hunting, but it was not feasible then, for cost reasons and I hadn't known anyone else that saddle hunts. Now I'm looking into it more seriously and think this is probably the best option for public land. You can go where few others can (which is the goal on public land). Never bow hunted public land yet. I just might start though.
I'm pretty sure you sold me on this. There is so many funnels on the public land I hunt, that just dont get hunted. With the saddle set up, I know I can get into those funnels without having to carry 25-30 lbs worth of clanky metal for a mile or so. Even if I did carry that unneccessary load back that far, how would I know for sure I can find a tree to "climb" on the hot trail/sign....this is especially true for a first time hunt on any piece of land. Well done video. Thank You
I just traveled from Alaska to hunt Iowa over the past few weeks of November and boy, this would have been really nice to travel with instead of trying to go through the hassle of figuring out how to ship/pack the summit climber. Great video and I'll def. look into saddle hunting next time i'm back hunting those white tails!
Why are you whispering?
