Sorry to hear your down. Hope you feel better soon.Welp I was getting ready yesterday morning to head out and was all dressed ready to go and then I go to pick up my pack and it felt like someone stabbed me in the back. I had muscle spasms and a sharp pain so I took a minute to sit and let it calm down. Then I decided to give it a go so I loaded the gear up in the truck and it was rather painful. As I was driving to the spot every bounce was killing my back, so I decided to head back home. Just didn't seem wise to keep going. Good news is that it feels 75% better today, but bad news is I have to work all week and this weekend coming up I'll be out of town. So, I'm going to miss the best part of the rut.. I'll get us another 5 points on the board by the end of the season, but to say I'm pissed about missing this part of the season is an understatement.
Let me know what you think of the platform. I’ve been using ROS for 5 years now and have been curious about a platform. Potentially looking at a platform with some steps on the strapGot my Ridge Runner platform in the mail the other day... time for all-day rut sits. No more sore ROS feet.
Heading out for the first hang with the platform now.... I'll let you know. I've been a ROS only guy so far and it's not bad but my feet do get sore on long sits. That's why I figured I'd try out the platform. I'm taking two of my Squirrel steps with me in case I feel like I want a step or two around the opposite side of tree. BUT... after playing with the platform in the backyad I don't think I'll need them. Maybe on a really big tree but I don't ususally set up in wide trees. We'll see. I'll let ya know my first impressions after this evenings hunt.Let me know what you think of the platform. I’ve been using ROS for 5 years now and have been curious about a platform.

The jx3 is good for ANY hunting. The only reason it didn't go with me on this sit is because I needed to be elevated a couple feet and had no trees to tie off to. If I had been sitting directly on ground this guy might have walked on top of me before I saw him haha.
