Bought a great new tool for bowhunting this year.

Just wanted to let you all know I bought a Treesuit I found while doing a search.
I had a couple of stands stolen last fall and wanted something that was a little more versatile. I read an article about turkey hunting out of it and gave it a try and shot my first turkey with a bow!!! I was impressed with the concealment and comfort. I am going to use it not only to hunt out of but also to help hang what stands I have left. Worth the money and thought I would share this with you all. If you have any questions let me know and I will try to answer them.
Happy Hunting,
RJ

It does look like a good idea, but I'm skeptical about how comfortable it would be without a back rest after several hours or an all day hunt. It is reasonably priced. Do you use tree steps then climb and setup?

I have really been spending a lot of time in it trying to figure out the quickest easiest way to get up and get comfortable. They sell a optional recliner strap that I did purchase and you can put it on after the set up and it is really comfortable and quick to attach.
I also think my number one set up is going to be my lone wolf climbing sticks with a couple of strap on steps on one strap that I can throw around the tree to stand on and to rest my feet on. So far I think this is going to be the ticket as far as being very mobile and quick. I did show a buddy last night and he ordered one today and they are going to discontinue their sale pretty quick.
Hope this helps some and I sure do not regret it on this end.

Interesting concept. Looks safe enough.

Aside from having the tree right in the middle of your field of view, I guess it would be pretty comfortable. However, I have concerns about the situation in which the deer approaches from behind you, over your right shoulder.

The website shows pictures of how to shoot 360 degrees, but that particular shot, where the guy has his legs crossed and torso twisted back to the right reeks of BS. Try pulling your bow back to full draw in that position....cold....after sitting for a few hours.

No thanks, I like my Summit Tree Stand just fine.

Dave,
Your right, it is not for everyone, but I found it to be comfy and you can make the shots they claim, I had my 16 year old in it and he was making shots most more than likely can't, I am not quite that flexible so it was a little harder for me but no more difficult than a few shots I have tried out of my hang on's and I will still use my hang on's some. Well guy's it's been fun but I have to get ready for a weekend of crappies and fun. Have a great holiday!!!!

Bought a great new tool for bowhunting this year.

I have a small piece of ground with a nice pond and a cabin (primitive) and I went there, caught several 12 to 13 inch crappies, a 4 pound and 3 pound bass, my 12 year old caught about 50 keeper bluegills and then I got him into the bass and he caught two 4 pounders and one that went about 5 pounds, we had a absolute blast, just the two of us. He said he didn't want the day to end so we went and got a some turkey liver and did some cat fishing and caught a couple til he fell asleep in the lawn chair!!! We started at a local lake but the morans in the boats were actually casting at the people trying to fish on the bank, it was just too crowded. Hope you all had a good weekend, back to the old grind stone!!!
God Bless,
RJ
