I saddle hunt with my short longbows and it's no problem. There are a few adjustments that can be made with certain saddles to prevent your string from contacting your bridge/rope on certain shot angles.

The used market is starting to open up on the old trophyline saddles since New Tribe has released the Aero Hunter Kestrel. Expect prices to drop drastically.

Take care,

Several years ago I had a tree saddle. I have never felt safer in a tree. It does take some practice getting use to it and shooting out of it. Practice with it during the off season before you go hunting. I wish they still made them.

Excellent piece of equip. Absolutely conducive to trad. There is a learning curve, but well worth it. google and youtube- lots of modifications that make it even easier to use.

Bears can attack people- although fewer people have been killed by bears than in all WWI and WWII combined.

We made some years back that were adjustable and would spike in with body weight. I was a monkey in those days and could climb a pole with a piece of rope in a grip loop. It all depends on the tree for how much fun the sit would be and how practical a shot would be from it.

i built my own setup- and it works really well- lot cheaper than buying the full rig- but i think the saddles are good bang for your buck- if you have the buck that is

A different company is making one now. Check out New Tribe climbing gear's Aero Hunter Kestrel. It is far superior to the original Trophyline tree saddles in my opinion. Made by an outfit that knows this kind of gear and designed by hunters.

That Kestrel rig looks badass! I've been hunting on the ground with an ASAT suit but this thing looks neato.

Yes it is Chuck. I've hunted out of the Trophyline Ambush saddle, The Aero Hunter Evolution (which was New tribe's first shot at the hunting saddle market), and the Kestrel. Still have them all but the Kestrel is as close to perfect as I've seen and is really well thought out. Check out saddlehunter.com for more information than you will ever need.

The only thing holding me back is the 6 week wait time. I can't do that atm. in 6 weeks, our season will pretty much be over.
