    Got 2 boys ages 1 and 2. It may be a while before I can leave momma alone with then for a while. I'd feel guilty.

    I'll pitch the idea to her next year though.

    lol - I'm glad you did. This is a cool one.

    Found the site thru either DIYSportsman vids or the Aerohunter instructionals with Boswell.
    I've forgotten which one because that was many $ ago

    I emailed John Eberhart a few questions after reading one of his books. His book had inspired me to move to saddle hunting because I hated ladder stands. With my size they were so limiting because I couldn't turn at all. I also only had public ground to hunt at the time and in Arkansas we are required to move a stand on public ground every 7 days.

    So I emailed John and was actually surprised he emailed me back and fairly quickly. That tells me a lot about what kind of guy he is. He referred me to this site. Shortly after I was purchasing an Aero from @Erniepower last Feb. Now here we are.

    Thanks for the site. It really is awesome. While I know I could benefit from Archery Talk, what little I've seen tells me I can't stand all the bickering and arguing that goes on there.

    Thanks for the offer. For the time being I am ok with everything although that could change in the future. This is site is a labor of love for me so I really don't mind.

    Could always markup the sales of the gear from the store just a tad to account for operating expenses... i doubt many guys would mind paying an extra buck or two if it went towards running the site.

    Random luck. There is very little on saddle hunting and not sure what search led me here, but I was like......"whoa this is what i'm looking for". I think some exposure on big buck registry or wired to hunt would be a great idea. Also nine finger chronicles wrote a gear review on the aero a couple months back. that would be a good exposure piece as well.

    I was looking for Ameristep ratchet steps and came across the forum. Now I'm glad I did as I really love hunting outta my tree saddles. I have two; an original leather one and a neoprene. Hadn't had them out for several years so I'll be dusting them off soon!

    After reading John's books I was like "what the heck is a saddle". I reached out to john to find a trophyline and then stubled onto newtribe and then found all of you lol!! Since then i have fully committed to the saddle and have dumped all other methods of elevated hunting.

    Found it through Google-Search of an Eberhart article on scent control. Decided to sign-up after being intrigued.

    I really wanted to get into saddle hunting this year. So a couple months ago I started looking for info. I'm a DIY guy at heart, so wanted to see what my options were from other people out there. A short google search and I found this forum. It answered all my questions and then some! A lot of great info here!
