I am looking for a holster for hunting  and would like a holster that rides across your  your body so it is easily drawn while sitting in tree stand. Any suggestion? My pistol is a unscoped smith and wesson model 29 with 6  1/2  inch barrel. Thanks for any help

Let me ammend my post and suggest you look at Ted Blocker or even though it is not listed on ther web page Murphy custom in Evansville In.  A good fitted holster is more comfortable to wear and gives less wear on the guns finish.

Do a google search for "guide" holsters.  These are designed to be across your chest.  I think you can find on made for your gun.

I have a couple of 7 1/2" barreled revolvers and use both Bianchi and Uncle Mikes chest holsters. From the sitting position I find a cross draw from the waist a lot better. I like the 1920 from http://www.epsaddlery.com/pc-67-27-1920-crossdraw-2-to-7-12-barrels.aspx. Your 6' might not be as bad from the chest type, but there is a lot of arm movement involved to pull the gun out in front of you.
I haven't picked up the Tanker holster from El Paso, yet. Since I am already familiar with their stuff I can tell that this holster http://www.epsaddlery.com/pc-96-25-1942-tanker-holster-5-12-to-8-38-barrels.aspx would be a nice alternative to the nylon ones out their. They make some nice leather and it compliments a blued S&W nicely.

looked for the older safariland I use to carry my 61/2, don't think its made anymore, too bad most shoulder holsters require one to extract the gun up and out, the old safari has a spring clip that allows the gun to be pulled out like a crossdraw. chamois harness, suede elk lined,

You want to avoid the soft leather liners... What happens is they pick up a lot of extra fine dirt when you sweat and it winds up eating the finish.  You want a smooth side in and a rough side out.  That does not look "nice", so you want a hard leather liner, so the holster breathes.

I have a couple of old Bianchi rigs that do this along with two of his cross draws that are similar. That was a nice design those guys had. It looks like the Bianchi x-15 still has it http://www.bianchi-intl.com/product/Prod.php?TxtModelID=X15

I prefer that hard leather liners be only used on the inside in IWB, where it facilitates fast draw, because of restricting belt,  and the rough side out to "grab" the clothing. Hunting shoulder holsters are rarely kept beneath the clothing which really slows down the presentation.
