I'm really gratified to read this, and the other post from a 63yo. My great aim in life is to stay active for another 30-40 years if I can, and that has to mean paddling my own boat and climbing my own trees. It's great to know that it's possible.
I think the platform might make a lot of difference. I use Wild Edge steps, and use 2-3 of them for my platform, in a semi-ring, and when I got that right, sits got a lot easier
I have a Tethrd phantom saddle.
I've never tried to sit mine for more than 3 hours, but for that long it's plenty...
I never heard of an ecological crisis caused by lack of coyotes or possums. From what I understand, you have to kill 90% of your coyote population to make any kind of real difference, because they’re such successful breeders.
We’ve created conditions that allow certain species to thrive. If...
I use wild edge steps, and the learning curve is kind of steep.
I’ll also say I’m in pretty good shape, and this is a challenge for a 47 year old dude. Might be easier if you’re more of a point guard than a forward.

Is it night time?
Are you out of tags?
If you answered no to all the above….
NOW IS A GOOD TIME TO HUNT!!!
Guy I hunt with likes to do it this way. He also uses an air compressor with a needle to separate the skin first.
Like most have said, I don’t think it is that much faster. I can go from pulling the trigger to quarters straps ribs etc cut up in a box in an hour and fifteen minutes. I don’t...
It’s telling that I had the best morning I had in months because I saw one spike. I never had a shot.
Wife texted me to say she saw twenty deer when she was walking the dog in our neighborhood, though…
8.4 million views, the kid made who knows how much on the video. $30k? Easy. With zero production costs. It looks better if he’s a nice guy about it.
Personally, I don’t understand “press charges.” Criminal charges are State vs. offender, on everyone’s behalf. Plus the dude looked to have...
The _-swinging that comes along with bucks and racks and scoring and "BBD!" and all the rest of it makes me want to just decide to kill does, exclusively. Seems like an opportunity to sign up to downgrade an otherwise really wonderful experience by comparing it to other people's.
