    new to hanging

    Howdy. My thanks to everyone for so freely sharing the vast collective wealth to be found here.

    An extra helping of thanks to angrysparrow for his skilled help with registration...thank you sir.

    I mostly motorcycle camp and camp to hunt. Thanks to y'all, I'm a converted groundling. Have only managed practice hanging in the backyard so far, but the testing has been fruitful.

    I truly am looking forward to my first away trip. I have these fantasies of hanging close enough by a roosted gobbler to roll out and into my calling setup before he even stretches on the limb!

    My virgin hang:

    Welcome to the forum! That's a comfy looking hang.

    We hope for gobbler pics from your first hammock hunt.
