Congrats on your buck. I was nervous the first time setting everything up but it does get easier the more you practice. Everyone on this forum are helpful.Congratulations. I also had my first saddle hunt today. I was so pleased with myself just getting up into the tree with one stick, that I was going to call it a success even if I didn't see any deer. Just before dark, an 8-point walked in, and now he's hanging in my garage. I think I could get to like this saddle hunting! And the guys on this forum are great. You probably found the same thing,.
