Trying something new can seem overwhelming at first, but once you get the basics down, your stress level will decrease each time you perform your new skill. That’s how I felt a few years ago when I began learning how to use a tree saddle. I looked at my hunting shelves in my garage and saw different styles of climbing sticks, hang-on stands and climber stands.

All the hang-on and climber stands that were on my garage shelves are now someone else's equipment. Below are the essentials you need to give saddle hunting a try....read more
