Looking to hunt Thursday and unfortunately steady rain is in the forecast. What are the reviews for using one of these things with a bow? Thanks guys!!!
Didn't do the bolded part in PA, I hope. Not legal.Birch812 said:I keep one attached to my backpack during rifle deer and bear and it has come in handy on many occasions.
As mentioned several times about the screw in bracket, and since I hunt game-land, State park areas a lot it is frowned on to screw into the trees.
What I have done is to cut 9" piece of 2X3 that I already have the bracket screwed into and when I need it I just use a ratchet strap to the tree for the support bracket and the umbrella has 4 ties to secure it around the tree. It is up and ready for business in about a minute.
I have the largest I could find and while you do get some spray its a lot better than hiding under a tree.
Turkey hunting once I even used it as a ground blind just by popping it open and kneeling behind it to call.
As far as hunting gear goes JMO it is worth the less than 1 lb extra weight it adds to a pack.
