Hello all... I'm a relatively new hunter (4 seasons) and am in Northern California. I've been lurking around the forum for a little while, trying to learn without being a PITA (pain in the a**). I've never done any type of hunting from a tree, but a saddle seems to be the smart way to go. Unfortunately I'm stuck with public land, so a fixed stand is out of the question anyways. I've tried to find other northern ca saddle hunters here, but I must not be kicking over the right rocks. But, I'm trying to find someone with some insight into saddle hunting in the northern socialist republic of CA. I'm curious about successes, failures, time on task, etc. Is it worth the effort? I don't think I've ever talked with another tree hunter from CA.
