Does anyone else feet get tired? I'm using wild edge steps and I feel like I have to readjust feet often to battle the fatigue. Any help would be appreciated.

After 4 sits and 10+ hours in my sit drag I am still figuring out how much weight to put on my feet. I sat a leaner this morning and it was awesome compared to my other sits, it was like i was leaning against the kitchen counter. I know the foot fatigue issue will spook game as i am constantly changing foot position and bending my knees to relieve pressure every 15-20 minutes.

Sit in your saddle more than stand on your stepps. I estimate that I have 80% of my weight distribution on my butt in the saddle most of the time.

Not sure I follow you. Being a leaner will have more pressure on your feet and cause foot fatigue. That is why most leaners are preferring platforms. Are you saying that you preferred leaning but had foot fatigue?

It was just the angle of the tree, a leaner seemed to take a lot of the pressure off my feet compared to my 3 other sits in straight trees. I understand the concept of sitting vs leaning I just need to play around with my setups to dial it in more.

This is because the tree was leaning away. You were probably more upright in this situation. Try to lower the point of the tree tether and you will have a shorter distance between the bridge and the tree connection point. See how that feels on your feet.

That helped me.
