Hello Hunters.
I'm looking for some good hammock information like these (https://hennessyhammock.com/pages/fishing-and-hunting) to use for boar hunting.
In the vegetation of my country this accessory is more appropriate. However, in some regions it is not possible to arm it at a distance of 15 to 20 yards far from the feeder.
It is necessary to arm it in a tree very close to the feeder because the vegetation does not allow clear vision in greater distances.
On these occasions the alternative is to raise it very high, between 6 to 7 meters in height to avoid that the boars perceive odors and noises.
What I need is a hammock that, besides being lightweight, resistant, etc, is silent, does not make any noise or creak when it is necessary to change position or slide inside it. A soft, satin inner liner would be required to prevent creaking. It also does not have to be too big as it is for one person.
The hammock I use is like this: http://produto.mercadolivre.com.br/MLB-8...avo-militar-_JM
It is simple and its fabric makes noises when it slides inside, besides not being very resistant.
Can anyone tell me which one has these characteristics?
Grateful.

Definitely not!
Sorry if I caused this impression but I posted the links on the hammocks ads because I have difficulties to post the images.
Incidentally I should have anticipated this and ask someone for help to post just the images to avoid confusion.
I reinforce that my message has no intention or business relationship.
I live in a country where there is no industry dedicated to the needs of hunters and so I always look for accessories and equipment in the US market.
Certainly an American hunter does not have to worry about any noise since he can fix his position between 20 and 30 yards from the feeder.
But here this is difficult because of the denser vegetation.
Please consider only my need to get specific information about hammock, a review that considers the issue of silence during use.
I repeat, at no time consider my message as advertising.
Grateful.

I thought about doing something like this a few years ago but I decided it would not be very safe with a loaded gun and it would be hard to get a stable shot off. I think a tree stand is a better idea.

When I was younger I would just nail a piece of wood between branches in a oak tree and hunt from there. Just make sure you have a safety harness for you and your gun.

Best of luck!

Unless you tied it out off each corner so it hung flat and level....

In mild weather I've sat out several hours after dark in a lawn chair. I've thought about bringing a chaise lounge or a cot. I reckon I could set up in the bed of my pickup downwind of a pig pipe with a driveway alarm and spend the night. My only worry would be the noise I might make getting into position to shoot.

I've never considered a hammock. I think it would be too unstable for shooting. Certainly there would be no follow-up shots. Plus, chairs and cots go anywhere. A hammock requires that support exist where you want it.

It really is dangerous but a fixed platform is very difficult to install due to the predominant type of trees.
And often it is necessary to spend the night because the boar can come at 22pm or at 4am.
And it's just at the moment of getting out of the lying position to put yourself in the firing position that my hammock emits noises that they can hear.
But besides a hammock that has a smoother and quieter coating I also need a more resistant product because mine is not much.
And I know that the products produced in the USA are reliable.

Good. I liked the jungle and tropical models. In addition to a G4Free.
The problem is that I can hardly get information about the noise that the fabric causes, because I believe that the more synthetic the more noise it will cause with the friction of the clothes.
But I will choose between some of them because even if they are not silent I believe they will be much stronger and safer than mine.
