PRIVATE OR PUBLIC?
10 years. My father used to hang behind me in his anderson tree sling when I was a kid before I could legally hunt alone so saddle hunting has always been familiar to me. After grad school I read about the ambush saddle in “Bowhunting Pressured Whitetails” by John Eberhart. I immediately picked up a tree saddle and have never looked back. Four years ago I started saddlehunter.com in the hopes of creating a community for like-minded hunters.
BOW OR RIFLE
Mostly bow, occasionally muzzleloader and shotgun.
STEAK, CHICKEN, OR FISH?
Backstraps wrapped in bacon
FAVORITE DAY OF THE SEASON?
As exciting as the rut can be, I love hunting early season. I can hunt after work and put more days in the woods.
