Excellent info. Thanks a bunch.
My hunting partner & I both got Aero Hunter Kestrels this year. We hunt exclusively public ground. I can say that there is a learning curve to learning to use one, I would say buy one in the spring and practice before taking to the woods with it. Also, get a platform. The tethered predator is an amazing piece of equipment. I’ve hunted out of nearly every tree stand made over the last 20+ years and these things are comfortable as any cheap loc on stand. Best part is I can shoot 360 degrees, hide behind my tree, and can hunt literally any tree in the woods. With 3 sticks and an aider I can get 20 ft up. 1st season in the saddle and I WILL NOT be carrying my lone wolf climber on public land any more. It’s not for everybody, but I’d say it’s been a game changer for us. I love mine.
