    See this is why the saddle set up has scared me. Im always in seek and destroy mode and the saddle process is for smart people who like to tinker with 50 pieces of crap in the tree. I'm neither. Lol

    I saw the three Doe and 4pt this AM. Nothing else.

    Checking this camera I have a day walking 6 and 8pt between 11 and 3, depending on their mood. That was also while they were in velvet. All things have changed if they have shed velvet. Anyway, I'm here . Sitting quietly since 1300. Main movement has been 1400-1530. Bucks like this finger cause they can be hidden in the woods and then exposed for 5yds on the tractor road and then hidden again in the corn.

    I have several under 20 shots and one 35yd shot to a main trail, which the Doe usually take.
    I'll do more trimming next year to get a couple more lanes.

    The 6pt is big bodied. Think he is older just not great antler genetics.

    Front coming through. Rain sometime between 17-1800. Hopefully puts them on their feet to get food and then back to the woods to bed. . Hopefully be an interesting 4hrs.

    If you use climbing sticks and a regular platform, it doubles or triples the number of moving pieces, a linesman belt, a tether, a strap/rope for each stick, a strap/rope for the platform.

    Using a summit platform as the climbing method has no more moving pieces than using your summit as a traditional climber. The list I made looks like a lot of moving pieces, but it basically uses the same principles and pieces, except instead of having the top piece of your climber, you do a sit and climb using a saddle. Barely any tinkering needed, and it stream lines your load out.

    Hunting is on hold. My wife was trail running and I think she just copied Aaron Rodgers. Taking her to the hospital now.

    Just had some throaty grunt like noise behind me. Almost like big burp. Do deer burp when bedded up and chewing their cud?

    Just got to the waiting room.

    As I said, she was jogging on a trail and she got tripped up. She said she lunged forward with her right foot to try to catch herself but her left leg stayed back, hyperextended the calf and she felt a pop.

    She said it hurt bad enough that the pain made her throw up. She laid on the ground for a while and then managed to get up and hobble back to her car. She didn’t bother to call me until she was almost home.

    Stubborn woman.

    That’s the first thing I did before I loaded her into the truck.

    She was almost in tears. Not from the pain, which was and still is considerable, but because she has a big hiking trip planned three weeks from now. She’s been planning it for months.

    Make sure you post a picture of you in your saddle or it never happened.
