As someone that has been trying to enter the saddle hunting community for some time I think I realize that saddle hunting will never be what it could be. The main reason being that in today’s world if I want it I want it now. It’s sad to say but it’s crazy that I have to wait a month or more for basically a safety harness that anyone can buy instantly. If I want to buy a new tree stand I can have one today. With today’s lives like they are people can’t always plan ahead like they want. Especially when the price is close to a cheap car payment. With two young kids involved in sports that cost north of 5k a year it’s sadly easier to just buy Several $40 tree stands instead of dealing with the hassle of buying a saddle.
