    What is your go to hunting height?

    Usually around 15 feet. Where I hunt is thick and shots are not going to be far as a result. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk

    Staying home to hunt

    I wish. My hunting ground is 2.5 hours away. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk

    Do you tie off your saddle to the end of your tether?

    I keep a small figure 8 on a bight on the end of my tether that I put into my bridge carabiner. Only backs up a failure in my tether friction knot. Even in that case, I'm going to have a less than pleasant experience depending on tree diameter and how much slack that is. Bridge or bridge loop...

    Treehopper Recon Adjustable Bridge

    That's really the only fault I could find with the Recon. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk

    Worst invasive species in North America

    For me, it's multiflora rose. I have that stuff all over my place and it's hard to remove. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk

    CWD article

    That's not too bad, but most would have had to process their deer by then. Unless you're OK with taking the chance, which some are, I think the only thing that would work for most would be something you could use yourself and get results in a couple hours. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk

    Curious if cold weather jackets or or cold weather stuff affects one's bridge, saddle, tether, etc. functioning in the tree while saddle hunting??

    I wear my saddle over my outer layers. I've never had any problem taking off or putting on a jacket or top layer in the saddle. Pants and bottom layers can't be safely taken off or put on once you're in the saddle at height in my opinion, all other things equal. The only scenario I could...

    CWD article

    Bummer. I wonder if someday there will be some kind of test kit you could use in the field to know if your deer is infected. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk

    Treehopper Recon Adjustable Bridge

    Everyone pretty much covered the options I'm aware of. However, what specifically do you need that the stock bridge doesn't cover? Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk

    I usually just slice it up and lightly fry it in a cast iron skillet with butter. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk

    Have you ever took a year off from hunting.

    I took about a decade off. I moved to a different state for school and it wasn't realistically possible for a very long time. I don't have kids so I can't speak to that aspect specifically. However, in my opinion any good relationship does involve real compromise on both sides. You have to...

    Carabiners ???

    I like some Petzl carabiners. My informal estimate is that people here are split on screw lock vs auto-locking carabiners generally. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk

    New PA tagging requirements

    I grew up hunting in PA. I don't know how it is now, but you did have to wear your license on the middle of your back. I always thought that was weird because you still had to be reasonably close to make it out. The worst regulation by far though was no Sunday hunting. I think they've added a...
