    Hey Hey

    Hey guys,

    Newbie here from the great state of Utah. I've been camping and backpacking since I was a little guy but have just recently been intrigued by hammock camping. I am an archery hunter and see a lot of benefits to ultralight hammock camping for my style of hunting. I'm hoping some of you experienced folk can give me some pointers and help me get started. I also hope to be able to return the favor to future hammock newbs and share my adventures here on the forum. Happy hangin

    Welcome from south Texas... I am not an ultralight guy but I can say that hammocks are the most comfortable night sleep I have ever had in the woods... And with great sleep, I can carry a few more lbs... Welcome and there is enough knowledge here to explode a brain so sit down and strap up...

    Welcome from Denver!

    Two places I'd recommend to start:
    1) Shug's videos: http://www.youtube.com/user/shugemer...ow=grid&view=1
    2) Derek Hansen's Book, The Ultimate Hang. Cheap, wonderfully illustrated and the perfect combination of everything you need to know to get started, while not being too long.

    Hello from another newbie Where in Utah? I'm infatuated with the state. Hope to make it out there one day.
