In this video from Northland Outdoors, Eric Morken breaks down his setup for hunting out of a saddle and the top three reasons he loves this style of hunting over the hang-on stands he used for so many years.
ALEXANDRIA — Hunting out of a saddle that a person can either wear into the woods or pack in has become a popular and effective way for whitetail hunters who want to be mobile and carry the least amount of weight possible.
In this video, Eric Morken of Northland Outdoors breaks down his saddle-hunting setup and goes over the top three things he has loved about hunting from a saddle over hunting with hang-on stands since he made the switch about five years ago.
Two bucks he shot with his bow during a September hunt in Minnesota and then in North Dakota during the rut in the 2020 season are good examples of how versatile saddle hunting can be for those who really want to be mobile and hunt multiple locations.
