    Hutch,
    It's OK. I spent all day on it today from 6:30 am to 4 pm. It is not the most comfortable, but I like that I can fold it and lash it to my pack. I have even just used the strap and wore it like a belt. So it is really portable which I like. I am not a fan of climbing into trees. Some types of trees work better than others due to the bark type. Overall it's pretty good. Nice to get up off the ground a little. Not so fun when you fall asleep and fall off.

    how small a tree can you use it on? A lot of the trees I see where I am hunting are only about 3"-4" across (not around), would that be big enough?

    Since small trees aren't going to provide cover do the deer get skittish when they see you? I'll look like a very fat over sized squirrel sitting on the tree and wonder how that would go over? Hutch, be quiet!

    Well MLN, I am concerned about you!!!! If you picture yourself like this" I'll look like a very fat over sized squirrel sitting on the tree" Then counseling will be needed.

    I don't know how well it would work on a tree that small. The seat has a post that has the strap attached to it, and that post is placed against the tree and the strap is fastened around the tree. The seat folds down and has 2 little cleats that dig into the tree. I think the cleats might be 3 or 4 inches apart, so I don't know if you would get a good enough bite on the tree to stay in place. Then there is the fat squirrel issue. Actually I don't know if the deer notice me more than I think they notice things that look out of place. I feel like I am in their back yard, and I think I would notice if somebody placed a 200 pound camo wearing over sized squirrel in my back yard. It is important to control your movement because the seat places you at eye level with the deer. I shot a coyote at 30 yards yesterday and he never knew I was there.
