No, I only got to hunt 5 or 6 days this year. I passed up a few does but haven't had any AR legal bucks in range yet. With the addition of this lighter weight saddle, the bolt climbing system, and kayak access... I think it's only a matter of time. I have done quite a bit of shooting in the setup though. It takes some practice to maintain proper form, but practicing from the tree gets you there quickly.

I plan to do quite a bit of pig hunting this offseason to break it in, though.

I dipped the bolts today. @scoutman mentioned flexseal as a possible coating instead of plastidip, as well as wire wrapped around the threads for hangers. So, I figured I'd give it a try.
Just some curing time, and they'll be done.
