Saddlepalooza Recap 2020

Saddlepalooza Recap 2020

Show Notes

Saddlepalooza 2020 is in the books. The trip was almost cancelled last minute due to flooding, but some last minute heroics from some of the group members allowed for a location change and the trip to go on. The annual get-together/hog hunt took place at Ft. Stewart in Georgia. This is a massive military base that is open to public hunting but only under strict rules. Some areas are open to archery only, while others are open for all weapons. Various zones can open or close for access on any given day.

I went out into an archery only unit with a few other guys on the first hunting day. With a little bit of luck, I was able to shoot my first hog at about 10 yards. The second day, I hunted with Catman in a rifle zone, using a rifle. I talk about that hunt as well on the podcast. Of course, part of the event that's exciting for most is the saddle demo day, where people can get together and try out different saddles, climbing methods, platforms, and accessories to experiment, learn, and discuss. I talk about some of the popular or newer items or methods from the demo day as well.
