I just went and checked my gear,
I don't know the allen, but this is what I use, and it works very well. It hangs from a bow holder, tree stair or nail (which you can leave in place) has two tree hugging straps that snap and draw tight, and two tiedows in case of winds that wrap behind the tree. I would put the diameter at 4-5 feet, and it can be used in stands or ground level. memory steel edge, and can be deployed very quickly and quietly. It can also be used as a quick ground blind. I left the pictures large so you can get a good look. Your allen is cheaper though, I think I paid 40 or so, about 5 years ago, but good gear will last you a long time.[attachment=0]This is what I use..jpg[attachment=0]inside view.jpg[attachment=0]open, it hangs from a bowhook or nail.jpg
The only real difference between a good tracker and a bad tracker is observation. All the same data is present for both. The rest is understanding what you are seeing.
