Anyone else out there use a saddle system?
My system consists of a Lone Wolf Hand Climber and a Tethrd Mantis. Here’s a quick instructional video explaining the setup.
I definitely won’t be going back to a tree stand. I find the saddle much more comfortable, and like you said, much lighter too.
I'm looking at switching over to a saddle and beast sticks. I currently run a Lone Wolf Assault and 4 XOP sticks. It works nice for public land, but every year it becomes more of a chore to carry in and hang every single time. The beast sticks would save some weight over the XOP's and the saddle weighs almost nothing.
Going to be expense to buy the new sticks, saddle and carry bag but may be the last setup I need.
