yes I have though I prefer a hang on or my saddle in a pine tree. I read people saying that pine trees are noisy. I'm not sure exactly what they mean by that. I've never had a problem with noise and pine trees. Personally though, I prefer my saddel over anything. We have 6 ladder, 23 hang on, 2 blinds and 3 climber stands on our property and nothing beats my saddle. You can go anywhere to any spot and not worry about looking for that perfect tree and still stay in shooting range. I highly recommend one to anyone who is looking It's comfortable quite and less work than you think.
