Default Any one hear of a Tree Sling????

Hey,
I've been reading this book called Bow Hunting Pressured Bucks and in it the author has suggestted using a tree sling in stead of a tree stand. The closest thing that I could find to one was from this web site http://www.treesuit.com. If anyone has any suggestions that would be great. Thanks.

My neighbor has one he bought this year.Looks dangerous to me and is hard for him to get in a position to shoot his bow but he can.May be good if he gets use to it.I'll ask him tommorow where he got it.

Do a search on the bowhunting gear review forum, there was a decent thread about the treesuit going on several months ago.

IMO, it's a gimmick.

I climb telephone poles for a living.....take it from me....the tree sling is good in theory but you won't want to hang in it for hours....not only will it cut into you and make you uncomfortable, you'll be squirming your feet alot...regardless if your standing on tree branches which is dangerous or using tree gaff's like we use to climb poles...they cut into your feet even with the best climbing boots and make your toes go numb.

That makes me think of hanging a hammock up about 20 feet. May be a little tough to shoot out of but cozy.
