Any saddle hunters?
« on: February 11, 2019, 08:27:15 AM »
So I've been looking into saddle hunting. Now being the thrifty person, OK down right cheap, I'm still sitting in the fence not in a saddle.
 I have noticed over the years, sitting in a stand for more than a couple of hours is painful and has been increasing. My lower spine aches and I have noticed an increase in leg cramps. Now if any of you have had these cramps, you may know they are " just kill me" painful. I'm thinking the ability to not only sit but to lean wou!d help with these issues. Anyone with experience saddle hunting?

When hunting from my blind, I sit on a 2" thick foam pad.  Much more comfortable than the oak stool, plus
It adds insulation.  I normally don't sit more than 2-3 hrs anyway.  Experience has shown me that there is not much deer movement in my area after 10am.

Yep, a comfortable seat is priceless.  My days of just climbing trees and sitting on the limbs are far behind me.  I have a very comfortable low chair for turkey hunts and a nice taller swivel chair for blind hunting.  Can sit comfortably for hours.

 Well , I've been reading, watching, researching,this and got a sit drag. I have a set up for my suspension gym I can use in our living room to practice from. With this system I'll be attached at two points the safety harness via the front linemans loops and the bridge on the sitdrag..
 Once I get over this what ever I have,lets say cold, I can try a few out door ground level sits and target practice. I new adventure .

 Thanks, I'm the last one in the family to get this.wow very contagious. At least not the flue.
 There are a bunch of videos on you tube. It's what peeked my interest. This could open up hunting camp a bit more they guys have few stands way to low to the ground and not in the best spots. I'll just have to get the right climbing method for me down.
