    Tree Saddle?

    Anyone use a Tree Saddle? Just curious what you think of them.

    Had one; never used it. Still trying to figure out how you're supposed to pee in one. Couldn't think of a solution, so sold it.

    I have an Anderson tree sling that I purchased in the 1980's. I probably used it a dozen times or so 25 years ago. The tree has to be 'just right' for it to be comfortable and the person using it needs to be in pretty good physical condition which I was then, not so much now.

    They are a really nice option and super mobile. The Tree Saddle is no longer made. Try looking at the Guido's Web. Do a search on here. Lots of material on here about it.

    You're suppose to pee OUT of it.

    I have a GW. I feel safe in the tree. Never have before. Stop drinking liquids in enough time before hand and pee just before you get into the tree.

    And it is more comfortable. The only thing better is a ground or permanent blind. Sans the heat in hot weather.

    Make sure you practice shooting out of it.

    And wrap the y bar with something since it is metal.

    Will a GW help you see/shoot deer? Don't ask me because I repel them no matter what I do.

    thought I read an article about it causing blood circulation problems in legs, maybe that's why no longer made ??

    I have a tree saddle I bought it last year used it part of the season ,,,Here is where they shine ,,light wieght moblie set up ..I hunt some public and it is great to just walk in and set up in almost any tree ..I like it ..It does help to be in pretty good shape..and you want to practise setting it up and shooting out of it .I only set in mine for 2-3 hours at a time that is all I hunt most of the time any way....You need to use climbing sticks and steps for a base ..you wear it in and out...and if you find some good sign you can set up on right then..

    Still have it? Want to sell?

    I'd be interested in buying it if you still have it.

    Seen them years ago they are a joke, stand out like a sore thumb. Probably why they arent made anymore.

    The area of view is very limited, like no more than 60 degrees, nearly impossible to get a shot if a target approaches from behind it. But looks like a nice way to chill.
    Why do I hunt? Simple, it's BASIC.

    They are probably the safest, most versatile hunting system ever devised. You can find them on Ebay and Craigslist. If you want to see how to use one check You tube or John Eberhart's web site. After you get used to them you can pee out of them too. You can actually rotate yourself 180-degrees inside the saddle itself, as well as move around the perimeter of the tree you're tethered too.
    They work in any tree, doesn't matter what it looks like. If it can hold your weight you can hunt from it.

    The Guido's Web is great, but not quite as versatile as the tree saddle. Someone hopefully will buy the rights to the patent and start making them again.

    Actually you will have less deer see you. Most of the time with the saddle you are right up against the trunk of the tree in a resting position. When you are leaning away from the tree you just look like a branch.
    I generally only hunt about 10-12' off the ground due to my fear of heights and I have far fewer deer see me when I'm in my saddle.

    Sniper, I still have it but I rarely (if ever) sell anything, just not my style. I still have hunting stuff from when I was in junior high (1966).

    I switched from the guidos web to the aero hunter last year. Best move I've made, absolutely love it. They redesigned it this year so it had a sling seat. Can't wait to try the new seat out.

    I hate to be too persistent but you said "rarely" sell anything ... I'd be willing to pay a good price if it's in good shape with all of it's straps. I'm working on a Tree Saddle/Ambush Sling hybrid and yours is the one I need. If there's any way you'd reconsider, email me at autumn_sniper@yahoo.com
    Thanks

    I tried the guidos web last year and for me it was a lil too heavey and over kill. I wish they had a climbing saddle when I ordered my web. I'll probably try that next.

    Always ... struck me as being medieval and inefficient. Has to be rough on your feet and make for a lot of "offhand" shooting.

    If you can get your hands on one grab it. I love mine. I haven't sat in a tree stand in three years. Extremely versatile. Easy set up, and the tree hides you pretty well. Good Luck.
